OLD OLD BIOS!!! But If you want to get to know me I think these are a great way to know my history and see how I've changed over the years!! So they will live here!!!
Hello! I'm Trisha Smith and I'm a Multi-Media Queen!! haha! I would describe myself as a dabbler! I love everything media and everything art and try my best to be knowledgeable of everything and anything I possibly can!
HI, I’M Trish a “multi-media queen” with a wide range of skills range from graphic design, video editing, motion graphics, animation, and visual effects. The first to graduate from Point Park University's Animation and Visual Effects major. Prior to attending Point Park she attended Erie Institute of Technology and earned an Associates Degree in Graphic Design.
Main drive and goal in life is to work in the music industry and use my skills to help promote bands as well as
create music videos. I have my own brand, 412nes about the Pittsburgh Music Scene. Typically I have weekly video series (on Facebook and YouTube) showcasing local bands, venues, studios, and shows! I also help to book bands for events, occasionally host my own event, as well as band management. Currently I help manage local hip hop artist Lexa Terrestrial. Occasionally I do interviews/video with other artist traveling though the city in a similar format but call them LiLBaT Chats. I have interviewed bands such as Bowling For Soup, Never Shout Never, Me Like Bees, I see Stars, Heffron Drive, Social Repose, and a few more and a lot more to come!
I am highly motivated and always doing what I can to reach my goals. I'm not someone who just gets comfortable and lives day to day, just getting by. If I'm not happy I do what I can to change it as well as do what I can to make others around me happy and successful as well. I don't mean successful as in wealthy or living large, I mean successful as in doing what you WANT and working towards your dreams. You don't have to be there yet but you are a success if you haven't given up and keep moving forward.
Older BIO written in possibly 2015/2016??
From a young age she showed interest in the arts and took many drawing, painting, craft classes as well as typing and other computer classes that were offered. In high school she studied cosmetology and showed signs of being a graphic artist before knowing it was really a profession or having design classes available to her. She was unsure of exactly what she wanted to do but knew she loved computers and art so she chose to go to The Erie Institute of Technology for graphic design! And is so very glad she did she learned so much and meet some truly inspiring teachers (Thanks Michelle and Lani)!
She then decided to attend Point Park University for film. She originally wanted to go to write and create stories based on her life with a flair of imagination to inspire and to let others know they are not alone! (Learn more about her by watching her new project Just Trish) But of course fell in love with Post Production. She discovered her love for editing as well as her passion to create visual effects! She switched into the Animation and Visual Effects major! As she had a very different style and process from the other students she sometimes struggled because she is much more digitally based and how sometimes it was frustrating it made her the artist she is today! And so many awesome professors and friends she'd like to thank from Point Park as well!
She worked at the Pittsbugh Tattoo Studio as a body piercer, receptionist and graphic designer. She also helped to design and bring some customer's tattoo ideas to life! Watching and learning about the tattooing process helped her to grow as an artist. (check out the awesome work at www.thepittsburghtattoostudio.com)
The most important things in Trisha's life are her family, including her dogs. Her dream job is to one day do visual effects and editing for music videos!!
