Peter Cotter
Objective Ideally, I would hope to work within an environment which has like minded, creative individuals and where I can learn and build upon the skills that I have already developed over the past two years. I have a passion for creating inspirational motion graphics and am looking for a company to offer me the opportunity to do this. I have a strong art background and believe that my photographic abilities such as lighting and composition will complement this.
