Animation test

I've started a little animation test tonight, and also posted it up on CGtalk. The bulk of what is said will probably happen on the forums, but I will post the vids here too. :)

My new home at Reel FX!

This is an extra special announcement so it needed its very own post. Soooo.... I'm finally staff at Reel FX!! Yay me! I'm so excited to finally be an official part of the team. This place is truly something special and I've got all the confidence in the world that it is only going to grow and get better as time goes on. Being a part of that process is something I am really looking forward to!

I'd also like to thank all of the guys that have helped me along to get where I am now! Ray, Ernesto, Justin, Eric, Ken, Aja, Dan, Tim, Bryan, Dave, John, Tom, Tim, and everyone else that I've worked with over this past year. Thank you for being so patient with me, and taking the time to explain things and helping me get better! I'd especially like to send a shout out to Randy Hayes, whose friendship and competition has really helped me keep pushing myself. I have a feeling that will never stop though, hehe.

Thanks again, now it has only begun!

Posts are for squares!

Just kidding, I'm more of a circle anyways... Sorry I have been so busy lately, we just ended animation on Open Season 2 a few weeks ago, and have been doing some rig tests and cycles since then. I don't know what I'm allowed to say and what I'm not, but OS2 is going to be great....greater than the first! I found a few of the new characters up on sony's website too, http://www.sonypictures.com/familyzone/ , about mid-way down you can see 3 new characters, Stanley, Roger, and Charlene. The OS2 trailer that they are boasting on that page isn't actual clips from the movie, but I believe the actual trailer is going to be released soon, not sure. Overall I did about 2 minutes animation on the movie, so when I'm finally able I'll be able to post my best work here and put together a decent demo reel :).
