Optimism

I'm really inspired by this post on Bobby's blog today.

I used to consider myself a very optimistic person, seizing opportunities for fun and adventure and trying to look on the bright side of things. I sort of got in a slump for some reason. Maybe it was years working on blah projects and getting bitter about it instead of DOING something. AM is helping a lot, but as Bobby says, it's a mindset you have to really try to be in, and I'm gonna find my way back there darnit. :)

AM - Week 302

While I'm trying to figure out how the heck to wrangle my complex next assignment into a simpler one (that really is always my problem isn't it?), I've finally finished polishing off my shots from last term to submit to the showcase!

I'm not really sure anything is good enough. I think my animation quality is good enough, but the presentation is off somehow. Either in my ideas or the timing or the pacing, they just don't sing as well as showcase submissions seem to. Oh well, I'm still light years better than I was just a few months ago so I really can't complain!

In class 2, between the lectures and Brian's (my mentor) wonderful insight on how to do the polishing details on a shot, I think I've finally broken through that wall of "good enough" and I'm climbing those stairs again towards feature animation. :)

More details later, for now, Progress Reel 2!!!

Internet... presence... shrinking...

Sorry about the lazy. I'm gonna start updating this again. Starting with this post to make me feel like I'm really a blogger and thus must continue! Really... seriously... yeah...
