Visiting Instructor

Gina Christine Niespodziani is the Chief Creative Officer and owner of Hey Beautiful Jerk, an NYC-based visual effects and design boutique. She started HBJ with her partner and boyfriend Mark Szumski in 2013 so they could tell stories together full time. Gina and Mark also direct together as a directing team under the name "Gina and Mark" and are represented by Honor Society Films.

Gina has a passion for animation and film as well as her toy poodle, Charlie Murphy. As a new teacher to Pratt this year, Gina returns to her teaching roots as she used to be an elementary school art teacher in Atlanta GA before returning to school to study Character Animation at Savannah College of Art and Design and moving to NYC in 2011. 

Gina teaches After Effects.
