By, Sara Costello • Assistant Project Manager
Here at Motion Source, we’re one, big family! We realized we wanted to give you a closer look at some of the people that make Motion Source tick, so why not start with our newest addition?
Libby Smith is our brand new project manager, and we are ecstatic to have her. Hailing from a background of video production, she came to us with a BS in Media and Cinema Studies and a minor in English from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, which she received this past May. She just started this past November, and has been so excited to find a job that she cares about and truly enjoys. “Everyone has been so welcoming; they’re always open to questions and excited to teach, plus I get to come into work and geek out about movies and people don’t judge me! (Except for my whole Disney-obsession.)”
It’s hard for her to say a favorite project since joining the Motion Source team since she’s still very new, but working at Motion Source has been a great experience for her so far. “I love that I am learning something new every day; I enjoy being challenged creatively. I can already tell I’m never going to be bored at work. Also, the snack drawer is pretty rad….” (It’s true, we have a great snack selection.)
When she’s not at Motion Source: “I’d like to say that I’m at the gym, saving homeless puppies or sauteing homegrown vegetables but in reality, I’m probably in my bed, watching Netflix and eating fruit snacks.”
Her Personal Mantra: “Go big or go home” / “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible” -Walt Disney
Favorite Films: The Little Mermaid, Good Will Hunting, Silver Linings Playbook, Waking Sleeping Beauty & Crazy, Stupid, Love “.....if I don’t stop there, we’ll be here all day.”
Quick Quirks: “I have a mug collection (which is basically just the more PC way to say I have an obsession with mugs…) & I may or may not single-handedly keep candle retailers in business… Cat memes are also my preferred medium of communication.”
