Bill Rogers graduated from The Art Institute with a Bachelors degree in Media Arts and Animation.
HIS GOAL in life is to be a good man and provide for his family. His hope is to be able to use his talents along the way.
HE FOUNDED the following businesses. Treasure Rock Productions, The Geekery View, Quick Draw Services and LOTH hoodies.
HE SPECIALIZES in story development, 2D & 3D animation, 3D Modeling, sculpture, book illustrations, TV Hosting, filming, editing, voice overs. story boards, character design and animation. Pretty much anything to do with story and design, Bill loves.
HE ENJOYS anything Spider-Man related, bowls of cereal and just about anything chocolate. His favorite number is 62 because that's the year Spider-Man was created. (In fact the white block that this text is on, has an opacity of 62! Fun fact!)
Here are some examples of Bill Rogers artwork. 2D, 3D, sculptures, logos and sketches. Bill creates all of his own artwork using traditional paper and pen (yes he likes pen better than pencil) and even works in the digital world of Photoshop, Maya and Illustrator.
3D Models for 3D Prints
Here is Bill's work on the Disney animated title sequence for "World of English." Bill was commissioned from Disney to create this short animation. He did the 3D modeling, animation, rendering and contracted out the work for the special effects.
More animation examples below. The Dino-Mytes was done for a toy company. The other 4 animations were all done while Bill was in Animation School.
(Airbender Animation. Bill animated the 1st AirBender, Modeled the Airbender Costume and Modeled the Firebender Costume)
Over the years Bill has done voices for commercials, cartoons and TV Segments. Bill enjoys doing character voices as well as professional voice over work.
Below is a voice Bill did for a character called "Franky" in a short animated clip that introduces Golden Street Animation. Bill was hired just to do the animatic but was quickly hired to do the voice of Franky.
Bill said, "It was a blast doing the voice of Franky! His voice is a very silly and overexaggerated, which is so fun to do. I still find myself in the car or in random places doing his voice because it's so funny. I was originally just hired to do the animatic but after putting my voice in as Franky, I was hired to do his voice on the spot."
Other Voice Overs
Bill is an entrepreneur at heart. He first got a taste in entrepreneurship when he was a kid by collecting lost golf balls and selling them back to golfers. ($.25 a piece or five for a dollar. And the ones with pictures on them were $1.) He also sold homemade soft pretzels. He would bring samples and sales slips to his dad's work and fulfil the orders by making each pretzel by hand.
But as Bill got older, he decided to venture in larger entrepreneurial adventures. In 2007 he produced a TV show called, "The Bride Idea. Bill hosted the 2 Episodes and showcased local wedding companies. He also wrote, produced, directed, edited and aired the TV Show on the local News Station.
It wasn't until 2013 that Bill really decided to test out his skills in business creation. At the time Bill was a full time student at the Art Institute, had a full time job, was fully involved in volunteering weekly at his church and his wife had just given birth to their 3rd kid. What better time to quit your job and start a company! With a little savings in his pocket Bill founded LOTH Hoodies and Co-Founded Quick Draw Services with a former Disney animator Scott T. Petersen.
Bill started The Geekery View at the beginning of 2016 with the goal to promote geeky products.
The idea for the Geekery View originated when Bill was doing a Kickstarter for his LOTH Hoodies. During the Kickstarter campaign, he hired a marketing company for $600 to promote his hoodies. $600 was a lot of money for a small business owner with a small family to feed but he decided to do it. He quickly found out that the promotion from the marketing company didn't result in any sales or increased traffic. Bill thought, "There's got to be a way for geeky companies to promote their products for a good price." The result of his pondering was The Geekery View TV Show.
Since then Bill has promoted hundreds of geeky products from around the world, interviewed companies at conventions and traveled to Comic Cons and exhibits around the country.
Since Bill is a geek at heart, he loves the work and get truly geeky about the products on the show.
