My temp job at BlueSky is now over. 3 months and 13 shots later I'm back home. I'm really happy I had the chance to try my "what if" and work on a movie, it's something I wanted to do since probably Jr. High school. Now, I'm excited to say that I'm headed back to Ready At Dawn to work on some exciting projects they have going on. They have a great team of talented people who are really good at what they do. That's the key. Really, it comes down to animation is animation and the most important thing is to find a studio of people who actually want to be there and do great work. When you find that, there's always room to grow because nothing is just ok, it needs to be better and better. Plus, games are really fun to play and even better to work on. I mean c'mon, working on a game for a living what can be better than that?

 
 

Mr. Williams came and gave a talk and visited the animation department. It's great when a place values artistic growth enough to have a legend like Williams come and share. He came to the AAU when I was there, but I didn't know who he was at the time.

 
 
 
 

Well after lots of hard work, luck and good timing, I landed an animation job at Blue Sky Studios in New York. It's a short gig but I know I'll have the chance to learn a lot. So much in fact, I'm scared my head will explode.

I competed with John Nguyen and Jacob Patrick as Team Grojf in this years 2nd Annual FJORG Iron Animator competition and came in first!

FJORG brought together 16 three-member teams that competed for 32 straight hours to create character-driven animations under extreme pressure and multiple staged distractions. Check it out here and here.

Just got this thing hooked up. (Thanks Jason) This should be better than my other Frontpage site. Hopefully I'll keep this blog up, too.
