I made it to Paris! I fund raised the money, I hosted a trivia night, I sold my creations at the markets, I worked part - time in a Juice Bar and I made it to Paris :)
It was the most amazing thing I've ever done and I met the most amazing people! There were lectures, there were workshops, there was a lot of coffee and a lot of laughs.
The whole thing was amazing and the things I learnt will help me in so many ways. So let's get right to it and I'll show the animation I did!
The first three days we listened to Fred talk about maths and animation based on the female walk cycle, every morning for 3 - 4 hours. Then we had the afternoons to work on a walk cycle. Here is my unfinished walk (I will work on it!)
This was a 3 day limited animation exercise that was hosted by Louis Clichy. Day One - Animatic. Day Two - feedback then animating. Day 3 - Animation complete!
That is all the animation I did. But not all of the adventures I had :) I will talk about animation galleries, and other things in another post! :)
Well, quite alot has happened since I last posted and I'm going to recap it all for you in the next post..
But first I wanted to share this with you! 29 ways to stay creative! I'm cleaning my workspace at the moment (well have been for the last few days) and it's great for a change! Enjoy:
Browsing through the DLF emails and I stumbled upon this advice on getting into the insdustry:
The solution: animate, animate animate. Then when you are done, animate
some more, and then some more again. Then finally when you have almost no
energy or time left in the day, do some more animation.
Thought I'd share a couple of things! I am part of the I Heart project that is happening on The Drifter and the Gypsy. Basically she sent everyone 2 sheets of blank paper that we then had to fill with our inspirations and loves. You can view the group photos here.
This is my 2 pages:
Also, i recently went to Melbourne and went to the Disney exhibit (which was amazing!) unfortunately I couldn't take photos/videos in there. But there was a lot of concept art and interviews with animators and animation history gold there. In the other part of ACMI (Australian Centre of the Moving Image) there were some Disney and Pixar and anime things, including Blinky Bill cels, Krome statues and Toy Story.
ACMI had some very very interesting animation stuff as well. Including this from Krome Studios (which no longer exists sadly).
Very cool eh?
There was also a ton of awesome graffiti on show in Melbourne:
And there's my February all wrapped up! Working on my showreel and a ton of small projects as well. I shall keep you posted!
