Who is Spark-O-Matic?
David Sparrgrove is the go-to guy for this very small, focused company.
After earning a BFA in graphic design from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), David drove cross country for a "sink-or-swim" job at the famous Pittard Sullivan Design company in Hollywood. That trial-by-fire position gave him tremendous experience which he then took to E! Entertainment Television for 2 years. By this time, motion design on the desktop (a Mac and pre-release Radius Video Vision) blew open what was possible by an individual animator.
Time flew by with stints at 2 Headed Monster, V12 and Concrete Pictures with numerous BDA and Telly awards, and 2 Emmy nominations in different years for X Game graphics.
Currently David has been busy working directly for clients (ESPN, Versus, to name a few) and helping out at design/animation companies (Big Smack TV, Troika, Zoic, Jump Studios, 2Hemispheres, to name another few). Of course moving pictures speak louder than words, and you are encouraged to check out the Spark-O-Matic reel.
Most recently David has worked on the insert look for Monday Night Football, packages for the Longhorn Network and the 24 hour ticker for Versus.
