Ask Between the Keyframes

Erin Sarofsky and Austin Shaw are Motion Design legends. Their popular vidcast Between the Keyframes discusses the craft and the culture of the industry.

Now, for the first time, we are giving YOU the opportunity to ask the experts those niggling questions about Motion Design you’ve been too afraid to ask.

We want to hear from you if you’re having trouble on a technical level 

  • Should I add 3D to my skill set?
  • How much do I really need to know before I start work?
  • This is my reel. Can you tell me why I’m not getting enough responses?

Or perhaps you need some advice on your career

  • My creative director hates me! What shall I do?
  • What’s the first thing I should do when I graduate?
  • My new studio has just opened; how often should I be pitching?


Whether you’re a first-year college student or a seasoned vet in Motion Design, we’ll be bringing regular responses to your most troubling conundrums.

All you have to do is click here to enter your question.

The more context you can give us the more in-depth we can respond. So, feel free to make us a video, or write to us and send it along with any supporting assets (like reels, or pictures).

If you’d like to remain anonymous, that’s totally cool too. Whatever you want to discuss, we’re here for it.

All you have to do is Ask Between the Keyframes.

About the author

Editor-In-Chief at Motionographer. Whether he calls himself an energetic wordsmith or a lyrical mechanic (it depends who he’s talking to), Stuart has an undeniable love of words. He watches every movie with subtitles, googles the lyrics to all his favourite songs, and talks like he can’t believe they gave him a mic. His ability to grab people’s attention, fusing a dark sense of humour with an unconscious optimism, offers a fresh perspective to the editorial voice. As well as writing for Motionographer and The Motion Awards, he has a regular mental health blog, spent over a decade running live events and music nights in London, and is an avid martial arts practitioner. His first non-fiction book will be released at the end of 2022. You can find our more here:
