Award-winning motion graphics artist
I've never worked with someone so meticulous and poised in both his timing and his art. When I needed something done, he had it ready. However the work he presented me was not some hurried, generic excuse. What he gave me was an amalgamation of his passion, love, respect, and total comprehension of his craft. I was thoroughly satisfied with Mr. Barcinas.
