Well well well, it's been a while guys..... Luckily I doubt anyone has been hanging on for an update here...... so don't lie dammit.
Hey, FRamestore Rocks (Thanks Amy!!!!!)
I can say I've been animating like crazy, but its all very subtle stuff, and very long to do, usually like the same 10 secs of footage for 2 weeks.
I have been fortunate enough to work on a shot for the New Golden Compass movie, (This Movie is gonna look awesome, I really hope the acting and script is as good as the visuals!!)
The shot consists of two main character Polar Bears, with about six others in the backround, My job was to sort out the three main backround bears walking away...... Realistic Quadropeds, oh my god....... and 3 whole weeks of it.
Then I got a chance in the Commercals dept, and what do I end up animating? Bears again. Grizzly to be exact.
But it's been an eye opener..... the coolest has been witnessing the amazing talent around me.....
These guys are real passionate about what they do..... I guess you have to be, especially at crunch time, when there are no longer enough hours in the day.
I hope you are all well, buddies, esp the one's I havent managed to mingle with for a long while now.
Apply for Animation Jobs at Framestore, they have started animating thier first full length animated film, Despereaux!!!! it looks freaking awesome so far!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
