Allison is all about making every project a positive and fun experience, guiding the team and collaborators every step of the way. A Texas native, Allison moved to the east coast in 2007 to attend NYU where she earned her Bachelor of Music. After college, she dabbled in a few pools and eventually landed at the audio post-production house Fall On Your Sword as an assistant producer where she worked on commercials, TV, and films including Cooked, The Path, Weiner-Dog, and Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds.
In 2017, she hit the jackpot by joining the team at Nathan Love. Since then she has produced many of the studio’s 2D and 3D projects— some of her favorites being Nad and Tad, NBA, Last Week Tonight’s ‘The Void’, and Xiidra (featuring the beloved Biff). Away from the work station, Allison continues to pursue music and songwriting with her folk-rock band, Pale Mara. They have released three albums of original music: Pale Mara, Votive, and Songs to Old Burdens.
A BRIEF INTERVIEW WITH ALLISON:
Do you have any advice for aspiring artists who wish to work at NL?
Create as much as you can on your own–give yourself experience. Build a strong and diverse portfolio that excites you and share it! When first reaching out, be sure to write an engaging, personal, and succinct cover letter. Make it easy for us to find you and see your work. It’s okay to email multiple times but space it out. Once an introduction is established and a conversation has begun, it’s nice to check in sporadically and update the team on your availability. But don’t get defeated! Sometimes it takes a while for schedules to align. That’s why you must stay focused on the work. To quote Neil Gaiman “Make good art”. Whatever that means to you.
What is your favorite fictional character and why?
Jane Eyre. I admire everything about her. She is strong, intelligent, morally just, hardworking, resilient, passionate, and romantic. Throughout the novel she is met with many difficulties but remains autonomous and true to her beliefs. Her observations are heart opening and mind tingling. She is a humanist and not afraid to stand up for herself and others – a peaceful fighter. In the book, she is described as physically plain but because of who she is Jane is eternally luminous. “Oh! That gentleness! how far more potent is it than force!” -Charlotte Bronte
What is it like to work at Nathan Love?
Working at NL is like hanging out on an amazing, ever-changing playground while also taking care of business. It is an extremely supportive and fun environment. The staff and freelancers are all so multi-talented, skilled, and passionate. The space is brimming with creativity and a constant excitement. We create incredible work and also have a blast – DREAM.
