ABOUT US

Karim and Christina Maksoud met at Ringling College of Art  + Design in 2014, where they both studied Motion Design. Motion Design is taking the principles of animation, graphic design, and cinematography and combining them into a commercial/visual content for audiences to enjoy. It is the art of movement and composition all-in-one. After Christina's graduation in 2016 and a year of photography experience for Karim, they had created MakSchu, LLC. 

 

Their main focus is creating designs, animations, and promotional videos for locally run Tampa Bay companies. These videos will help businesses market their missions, and reach out to their communities. In the past 4 years, MakSchu has grown exponentially. They have collaborated with over 100+ businesses in the Tampa Bay area and produced limitless visual content. They have been grateful to work with start-up businesses to major corporations such as Bealls Inc., Champs Sports, Visit Sarasota County, and Visit California. Some of these collaborations have led to awards!

 

MakSchu, LLC. recently opened its' MakSchu Studio near downtown Sarasota. The Studio is fully equipped with lighting, audio and camera equipment. There is an interview set, and a green screen to composite against any background to match a business' brand. Our goal with MakSchu, LLC. is to better serve local businesses in Sarasota and all-over Florida with their branding and promoting themselves in an affordable and professional way.
