My name is Greta Larkins. I make animations and videos.

My work is all about fun and good times. The three things currently inspiring me the most are making animations loop seamlessly, statement earrings (lifetime obsession), and Liberace (I’m more Versailles than IKEA when push comes to shove).

While I’m not doing client work, you can probably find me playing around with my hair to see if it will ever look effortless.

The best thing about working on commercial projects is other people’s ideas. Outside input forces you to develop new skills and look at a brief in a new light. I’m really excited to experiment more with text animation, because getting a message across in a short video has become crucial on social media.

I’m most known for animating fashion and models. Most of my work starts with client photos. Then I use Photoshop and After Effects to bring them to life and create movement.

Here’s a recent rain animation I created for The New York Times' style magazine. I loved adding movement that enhanced the original image and concept.

One of my favourite projects recently was this piece for Melbourne Music Week. The challenge of integrating questions and answers with relevant photos (plus keeping up the pace) was good fun.

I really loved working with Tumblr to produce quick content for Coachella in 2016. I’ll always remember how I can’t remember how I made this animation. Honestly, no idea how it works.

Here’s some other pieces I’m really proud of. They were created for AnOther magazine. For the last few years I’ve animated book covers for them. The turnaround is quick, so I’m always looking for efficient animations that will stand out in their Instagram feed.

It’s also really important to dedicate time to personal work because it’s a great way to build my skills and make mistakes without a deadline.

Always remember—the key to all savoury meals is a squeeze of lemon.
