Man I love art school. (And fear it sometimes. But it's a fear I'm willing to take on for the love of it)
The title pretty much indicates our school was visited by an animator from Pixar. And considering our far our school is from California I both appreciate the school and him for the fact that he got to be here.
I'm just kinda geeking out about this here because while I love animation, and haven no regrets majoring in it, just some of the work.... well let's just say I haven't been this in love with animation in at least a year. It sort of re-sparked the fire in my heart for animation.
The animator was this guy btw www.imdb.com/name/nm1974935/
if you wanna see what films it worked on.
The work shop was for three days for 9 hours Friday and Saturday. Then 6 hours Sunday. And I have way too much of my notebook now filled, but man was it worth it. There were so many things I hadn't learned or considered before. Now I'm all hyped to work on animation. I just KYAAAAAAA *insert fangirling babble here*... Whew.
Either way, I'm looking forward to what I can bring to people.
Speaking of such, as I said previously, there was a FNAF related animation project I was starting up hopefully with a few friends.
Indeed I will be! It's going to be a legit animation project. The storyboard is complete, the animatic has been in progress for a bit, character sheets are being started, a production schedule has been completed, and there are a couple of other things worked on.
I have a small team that I'll be directing for the production of this project. I'm kinda excited really. The only thing is.....
the more official this became, the more pre-production time we realized we needed to set things up properly for everyone. So while originally I was intending on just having the animatic done and released by the end of September, proper pre-production things to keep this project going right will mean pushing it back one month.
Unfortunately that means for the next month I won't be too active here. I mean I'll be able to post some school stuff for you guys. And I'll show a few animatic sketches. But yeah... sorry guys.
Also I have a question. Do you guys want to see my sketchbook sketches sometimes? Like compiled into a document? It's odd but yeah. XD I always wondered. You guys watch me so yeah, it's your choice.
