Jamie Byers has years of experience after his start back in late 1999. What started out as a hobby quickly turned into a career. After attending York Technical College studying engineering graphics and landing a job as a draftsman, he quickly realized his real dream. The animation world was fascinating and Jamie pursued learning 3DS Max and Moho. In early 2000, He began his path in the freelance market. He attended Art Institute of Charlotte where he graduated with an associates degree in Multimedia and Web Design.
He began work during his college days at Fox Charlotte as a part-time camera guy and graphics between live sessions. It didn’t take long before Fox hired him on full-time as a motion graphics artist. That path was the start for Jamie, where he ended up working for INSP, Steelroots, Snap 5 and Limerick Studios. Jamie went from the early days of freelancing for almost nothing, to a lead animator at Limerick studios within the first 6 years of his career. He went on to start Digital Hyper Studios as a part-time freelance company on the side in 2005 which turned into a full-time job in 2007. Since then, Digital Hyper has won numerous awards and has grown in size. Jamie says “I give all credit to the Lord himself, because without Jesus Christ leading my life, I couldn’t have made it this far.” He continues to pursue this passion working on projects that range from web commercials, cartoons, broadcast spots to visual effects in film.
