Owner and President
Joshua is twice an alumni of Full Sail University, having earned his B.S. in Computer Animation and his M.S. in Entertainment Business. After completing his bachelor’s degree, Joshua entered the business world for a small company called Today’s Class. While there, he worked in the world of computer animation, completing Hair and Cloth simulations for a Cosmetology eLearning solution they were developing. He also built a custom Lecture Builder which was a Flash-based Cloud Computing software solution similar to PowerPoint. In his tenure there, Joshua learned the ropes of a small business, and decided to push his own business full time.
To safeguard the company he was building, he returned to Full Sail to hone his business skills. He graduated in 2010 with a 3.9 GPA and the Course Director’s Award. Today, he is using the skills learned there to grow Huebris in smart and innovative ways. He resides in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, attends Church of the Highlands, plays tennis and is working to bring the video game industry to Alabama.
Chris Logan was born and raised near Houston, Texas. He is a graduate of Full Sail University with a B.S. in Computer Animation, and started working with Josh during their college projects. He manages the artistic and aesthetic direction of Huebris as its Creative Director. Before delving into the world of digital art, Chris was a diligent student of traditional art forms, most notably graphite and colored pencil. It was in these studies that he became adept in the aesthetics of lighting and texture that would eventually pave the way for his success in computer generated artwork.
After graduation, Chris moved to the west coast to intern at Zoic Studios in Culver City, California. It was during his tenure here that he learned many management skills and techniques from some of the best directors and producers the entertainment industry has to offer. The internship consisted of the completion of an intern project including nearly 20 team members. Chris acted as the lighting and rendering lead and earned recognition from Zoic executives as both a skilled 3D artist and a great leader. The internship also implemented a mentorship program from which Chris learned a wealth of industry knowledge that would prove invaluable. Chris eventually felt his roots calling him back home, and decided to pave his own way closer to the South. He joined the team at Huebris in 2010, and has helped to grow our client base by his dedicated hard work, and unique vision that brings every project to perfect completion.
Ken Kiefer was born in Long Island, New York and grew up most of his life in Orlando, Florida. He began drawing at a very young age and continued to do so all through his schooldays. When college came knocking, Ken decided to further his skills in art by attending Full Sail University. There he learned what it takes to be a great artist and what it takes to work in this competitive industry.
At Full Sail he learned all aspects of the computer animation industry, from modeling and texturing to animation and rigging. At the end of his college studies he majored in Character Modeling and graduated with perfect attendance. This truly speaks of his dedication, as Full Sail has a 24/7 college curriculum which had mandatory labs sometimes scheduled at 1am – 5am!
After School he jumped right into finding work where ever he could find it. He began work as a storyboard artist for a live action television show called Trio as well as completing storyboards for a Bud Lite Commercial pitch. After doing various other freelance projects including some web design, Ken interned at Lamp Light Media as a concept artist. Ken finished his internship after 6 months in 2010. Ken was then brought on to production for a fully CG movie called “The New Kind,” doing concepts, modeling, texturing and animation. During this time he was also picked up by Huebris as a concept artist, and his role has continued to increase and evolve since then.
