One year!

Well, it’s been exactly 365 days since I got my acceptance letter from Calarts! I don’t think that a year ago I would have guessed that I would be frantically cleaning up and animating a film that I had no idea I would ever concoct, exactly a year in the future. Of course, by now I’ve acculturated myself to CalArts life (and really shouldn’t take it for granted, but… I do anyway)… I think I’m a lot busier than I suspected I ever would have been, but that’s okay! I’m having fun, I’m being productive and life’s great. (And I did have a new sort of revelation tonight, which is– I am a little bit TOO proficient at spilling soup. Actually, I concluded that the gravity in my dorm room is especially wonky and comes from every possible direction. At least if a chair-eating monster ever gets hungry and, for whatever reason, decides to enter my dorm… it’ll find that my chair’s quite delicious).




Days left




films are




Okay, okay, so it’s going really well– 2 scenes left to animate, 5 scenes total left to clean up and digitize (out of 19). With gallons of luck and perhaps a magical pixie-dust (or, rather, eraser-dust) faerie,  I’ll be done by the end of the weekend (or else Monday night). Spring break’s coming right up and I’d best be finished with all the animation so I can go home and work on LAYOUTS!


Flippin’ Out!

This is what a traditional animator does.
Over and over and over and over.
I just wanted give a feel of what it is to see your animated frames come to life when flipping/rolling them manually.
And I would not complain if someone found a way to give me a second left arm, so I could flip more than five pages at a time 😛
That’s all the preview you’re going to get for now on my film!! Hope you enjoy 😀
