Okay, its been a while but I’ve been working on the above for some time now. I’m really excited to finish it. It’s getting closer to completion. Hopefully it will be finished by the end of February. It’s part of my monthly goal. This month is to finish a prototype (I did a non-game and a game << more on that later) and an Animation. I am still working on the animation and will be finishing/posting that up soon. Next month is 3D Sculpting!
So the other day I went to see BIG HERO SIX with my cousin. I love watching Animations; whether its 2D, 3D, stop motion, and… really anything animated. I was so excited to see this and I must say I was not disappointed. The story, the action, the characters, and the visuals we’re fantastic. The only thing I was a little iffy with was the performance capture. I’m not a huge fan of it, I like to see animators bring the characters to life its thrilling to see their interpretation of how the character would act. I mean animators are just like Actors without seeing them or hearing them. Anyway, it was better to use performance capture because of all the action. It’s a Marvel comic on the big screen so there is bound to be some really good fight sequences. And the sequences were eye candy. I love fight sequences, animated or otherwise.
I say go see the film, its worth the money and you won’t get bored.
YAY! I finally finished my website. It took me some time because I was coding it by hand, I’m not the fastest web developer but I got the job done. There are a few free website builders like wix.com, behance.net, and imcreator.com. I wanted to have my own domain and I already know of free hosting so I made my own. CHECK IT OUT!
Today I went in for a job interview with After School Matters for the Animation Instructor job. It wasn’t really a job interview, it was more of a meet-and-greet. My résumé impressed them and attitude that they felt they didn’t need to interview anyone else. I was THRILLED! To get the job, work in animation, talk about it everyday, and teach others about what I love doing. I didn’t go out to celebrate, I just when to my College to get some work done. Got to keep on trucking!!

Today was jammed pack with Animation, and Awesomeness. The day started off with the Pixar Master Class. The class was taught by Andrew Gordon. The amount of knowledge he gave us was well worth the money and then some (The class from yesterday was on Story, which included story boarding, character development, and Camera). My suggestion, take the classes! You learn soo much and free swag if they call your raffle number like me! YAY!
Also! See BRAVE! It’s absolutely BEAUTIFUL! The visuals and the animation was a treat for my eyes! It was a great day overall!
