Just noticed I haven't posted a journal entry in 2 years! Thought I'd better let the 1 and a half people out there that might read this know that I'm still alive and kickin!
Uni has been and gone for me now and I can finally say I am a qualified animator, however I still have much to learn! In the time away I have been very busy on quite a lot of things, namely my short film 'Against the Grain' which I worked on with another student Chris O'Keefe. It took us around 8 months and about 2000 hours to create our 3 and a half minute mini epic, but it was well worth it! The project taught me SOOO many things about creating a short film not only on a technical level, but on a social and emotional level as well. I am super proud of how it turned out and going in to uni from the beginning, I never expected we could achieve what we did.
To top it all off our film was accepted into the Melbourne International Animation Festival and will be showing this Sunday! Here's a link with the program. (We're down near the bottom of the list)[link]
Unfortunately at the moment we can't post up our film on the internet until we are done showing it in festivals, but sit tight and you may see it soon.
Soooo, now that I'm no longer neck-deep in uni assessments I want to get a little more active on my deviant posting. You may have even already noticed I've starting chucking some work up again. WOO! I do have another project on the go at the moment as well but I can't really post much until we get closer to finishing. What I can say is it's an iPhone game, and it's been damn fun to work on. Especially coz I get to do all of the art for it!
Anyways... I've spent quite a lot of time working in 3D so i'm pretty eager to get going on some 2D cartoony stuff! Anyone got some suggestions to get the ball rolling maybe?
