Hello, I’m Delano Samuels.
I’m an animator/visual effects artist and director based in New York City.
During my career I have played many roles, both within production and post-production, and have found that my passion lies in directing and animating. I have a knack for taking ideas, both large and small, and creating cinematic experiences.
I have freelanced and worked for different studios in the past, and currently work for Business Insider.
I like working in the field as well as in post-production, and enjoy leading projects creatively, conceptualizing ideas, 2D/3D animating, and set supervising.
During my off-peak hours, I like to sing, write music and screenplays, research/read tech news, feed birds on the street, and spend quality time absorbing nature and watching ducks swim.

What Clients Say
I have hired Delano for many freelance production jobs over the years, and will continue to work with him for as long as possible. Delano has that perfect combination of knowledge, work ethic and personality. He’s skilled in camera work, editing, research, writing, grip/electric/AC and more. He is the first person on set and the last to leave, and works hard every day. And he is extremely easy to get along with: friendly, kind, always positive even at the end of a 17 hour day. Delano is simply amazing!
Delano’s contribution to my film was essential.. He is talented, collaborates effortlessly, has a strong work ethic, and is a joy to work with. I hope to be fortunate enough to work with him again.
He was really helpful with visual effects and we enjoyed having him at the office.
