All his life, Mark Dyson kept his two passions – art and technology – separate.

That was until about two years ago, when the 53-year-old Deerfield man quit his job as a computer graphics designer with the Northrop Grumman Corporation and combined those loves into his own 3D animation business called Spinland Studios.

“I went back and forth with my wife for about a year before finally pulling the trigger,” Dyson said. “It just felt like the right time … and I knew that the Mohawk Valley was historically underserved in this area and I could hopefully fill the gap.”

Operating out of his home studio, the retired U.S. Air Force member creates 3D animations and logos that can be used by local businesses and organizations for advertising and presentations, and by independent filmmakers as special effects.
