I am a motion designer, filmmaker, and animator. But my true passion is storytelling.
I seek to tell narratives that connect with people and challenge them to think.
In 2015, I graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in Motion Media Design.
Currently I am based in Atlanta, GA, and I occupy my time as a motion designer for WSB-TV, Atlanta's #1 news station.
For a more in-depth look at my experience, take a look at my resume
I am always interested in new projects and collaborations. Let me know if I can help make your project a reality!
show open: vikings
In this reinterpretation of the opening sequence for History's award-winning scripted drama, Vikings, I use the lawless, war-driven culture of the Vikings as inspiration to set the tone for the show.
Weaponry and iconic imagery is used throughout and each icon speaks to various
aspects of the show and the characters.
The viewer is invited into the immersive world of the Vikings.
the home depot
I collaborated with Pablo Gnecco at Studio(studio)
to create on-screen graphics for a segment of The Home Depot's annual Store Manager's meeting, held in the Mandalay Bay Arena in Las Vegas, NV. I designed and created custom graphics integrated across multiple screens for two songs used during the live performance.
The challenge was to create graphics that reflected the nature of the songs while also serving to set the tone for the space and immerse the audience in a sensational experience. Case study coming soon.
short film: white umbrella
Today, millions of women are sold for sex against their will. White Umbrella uses the art of dance to follow the plight of a woman trapped in the bondage of sex-trafficking as she sets out on a journey to freedom.
Inspired by the book of the same name by Mary Frances Bowley.
I created this film in collaboration with my sister's dance collective, Bluebird: Uncaged
. Rebekah chorerographed the dance for stage, and my task was to take that choreography and translate it into something that could be told cinematically.
We shot the film over 4 days in Atlanta, GA - and I spent about 6 weeks piecing it together.
Can't make the film live yet online, but enjoy the trailer for now. Stay tuned!
Directed by Caleb Diaddigo
Produced and Choreographed by Rebekah Diaddigo
Original score composed by Todd Locke
network rebrand: history
History is inclusive.
History is not singularly about the past and it is not singularly about the present - it is about each of the individuals who are woven into the fabric of time.
In this network rebrand for History, I use a constructing timeline as a visual metaphor
for the role every one of us plays in the grand narrative of history.
It is your story.
short film: strange happenings
Created by Caleb and Joshua Diaddigo
Created for Bluebird: Uncaged
as the second video installment of the Beautiful Things Project. The piece explores choosing to believe the truth about our identity, as we step into the freedom of who we are made to be.
Bluebird Uncaged is a dance collective and creative endeavor to bring hope, dignity, and freedom through dance while inviting people into a story greater than their own.
network rebrand: amc
AMC has something for everyone. And, not surprisingly, it is because of this very reason that the network draws the attention of a great diversity of people.
Using the nexus device as a visual metaphor for the wide-reaching and diverse
programming on the network, this rebrand brings unity to the diversity by making
the point that at AMC there truly is something for everyone.
AMC is the place where you can experience it all.
In this infographic project I created for eBoard Solutions
, I use simple animation combined with a sleek, modern design to communicate the innovative solutions eBoard provides to help boards become more effective and get more done.

short film: journey
Life is a journey, and it will take you many places. But there is always no place like home.
title sequence: the good, the bad, and the ugly
Using the original audio track from the 1966 film, "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,"
in this project I set out to create a compelling title sequence that accurately reflected the nature of film, while utilizing the techniques of parallax.
I used hand-drawn sketches in combination with several layers of texture to visually represent the raw and gritty narrative of the film.
My latest work. Includes samples through Spring 2015.
