Animator specializing in hand drawn psychedelic loops and music based visuals.
Check out a full library of canvases I've animated here:
PRICING: $600 per canvas. If you have a very specific idea in mind or pre-exisiting artwork to use as reference, I can sometimes give a discount. I also have a $750 deal for album art/canvas art as a set.
3 WEEK TURNAROUND TIME. I have a full time animation job and am doing these on the side and animation takes a long time. I will send works in progress throughout that time for approval so it's not all waiting.

Working with Shane is SO awesome. We just wrapped up another project and I'm already eager to start the next one! This man deserves more than 5 stars, if I could give him more I totally would!!
Working with Shane is a DREAM! He absolutely got my vision and listened to every aspect I discussed. I absolutely cannot wait to work with him again on more pieces. Highly recommend. You'll love working with him too! :D
Shane's animation was a perfect fit for my song. He was inquisitive and attentive in our initial conversation, had a timely turnaround on the product, was patient with feedback and edits, and a good communicator throughout the entire process. Very happy!
Sean did an amazing job on my canvas art for Spotify, he was helpful and respectful when working and he's always works hard and respones in a timely manner
impeccable .... !!!!!
Great working with Shane. The quality of his animations is unbelievable. Exactly the kind of style I was after. Hopefully, we work together once again in future.
Shane has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very clear and upfront, flexible and understanding with pricing opt, and prompt with responses and revisions. He is a very professional communicator and is great at collaboration. The quality work he did for me was perfect, he took what I asked for initially and (after discussing it with me obviously) made it even cooler, incorporating his own signature style while still staying very true to the original vision. 10/10, would recommend!
Another great canvas with Shane Beam. Highly recommend!
Shane created an incredible canvas for me... so attentive to detail, communicative, and he gave me plenty of great options when we started out. I highly recommend!
Great communication, creative ideas, and works fast. Highly Recommend!
Interview with Shane Beam
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Wanted to be an artist since I was a kid, got a BFA in Animation learning from incredible veteran animators, animated social media memes for a year after I graduated, directed my first music video in 2018 and have been working on independent projects ever since.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What does the track mean to you? Any personal insight is the best thing to work with on my end. Do you have any ideas, specific requests, supplementary visual material or pre-existing art for the project? If not, that's totally ok, the first question will help us get started.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: After gather all the musicians input and discussing ideas, I create several sketches in Procreate, take those and animate frame by frame in TVPaint (at least 12 drawings per second), and composite, color grade, add FX, and render in After Effects. There are several check in points throughout where I will send works in progress.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I sketch on an iPad Pro, animate on a 24 inch Wacom Cintiq Pro display, and edit on a beefy Macbook.
