Akullian Goes North

Our video crew made the trip up to SUNY Plattsburgh to capture a tragic, but heartwarming story about an Organ Donor Hero named Dalton Criss. The production was highlighted by songs performed at the Hartman Theatre by the SUNY Plattsburgh College Gospel Choir which is led by Dalton’s father, Dexter and includes his family. This piece, “Dalton’s Story” will be released as part of The Center for Donation & Transplant‘s 2021 Donor Memorial Celebration which will take place later this month. 


Akullian Goes South

The Akullian Team headed down to Florida a few weeks ago to film the Albany Empire take on the Orlando Predators at the Amway Center in Orlando as a part of our upcoming mini-documentary, Craig The Leg. 

Rich, Andrew, and Esther visited our friends at Diamond View in Tampa to see their new Vū Studio, home to one of the largest LED volumes in the world. The production’s they put on may be “virtual” but they certainly are doing a lot of actual hard work to pull of the amazing results.

The team stopped by the University of South Florida, getting inspired to create great social content for their 2021-2022 school year! Go Bulls! #HornsUp

From designing visual effects for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to animations for Amazon Prime, if you’re seeing great animation work, there’s a chance it’s Riley Animation Studios. We were lucky enough to catch up with Kevin Riley and learn more about what it takes to run a Emmy Award winning design and art studio.


Aced it.

This spring, our interns Isabel and Kaylee received their bachelors degrees and began full-time at Akullian Creative! Isabel, who will be taking the role of Marketing Coordinator graduated Cum Laude from Siena College with a degree in Marketing and a concentration in International Business. Kaylee graduated Magna Cum Laude from the College of Saint Rose with a BFA in Graphic Design, and will join our design team. Congrats girls!

Meet our aces.
