An Update

Well, I never heard back from High Moon. I guess they decided they didn't want me. I am okay with that. I am hoping that something bigger and better will come along next. I know God has plans for me. I just have to be patient. In the mean time I am still applying for every job that I can find. It is really hard sometimes to find some of those smaller studios. I am sure there are probably over a hundred studios I have never heard of. I think in the mean time I am going to get a part time job so I can save up some money, in case I eventually have to move somewhere. Well, I think that is all I have to say for now. Lydia out.

Pixar: Brave

So, just in case you haven't seen the trailer for Pixar's next big movie, I thought I would share. It looks like it is going to be pretty epic. It is called Brave and it is set in Scotland. I am super excited already. I have been looking at concept art for the movie online and I am falling in love. I like the character design for the princess. I think they did a good job making her unique and much different than the run of the mill princess (not that I didn't love Rapunzel in Tangled, but is nice to see something unique and different). Now I just have to wait a year to see it. Till then, just keep feeding me clips and artwork!

Exciting News

Things will be happening really fast if all goes well tonight. Yesterday I got an e-mail from High Moon Studios saying they would like to consider me for a temp animator position. Awesome!!! But it would start July 5th and end in January. That would give me a week to move to California. Its exciting and crazy all at the same time. I'm so nervous because I have a phone screen tonight. Pray all goes well for me!! I will update as soon as I can!

Rendering in Progress

I am super excited to get to see "Rock in the Road" (one of the projects I worked on at Southern) making progress in rendering! Everyone has been working so hard and it is good to see some results. It is going to look so awesome when it is finished. I am really glad I got to be a part of it. I didn't work on this shot, but I wanted to share it anyway. It is probably still going to be a while before I see my shots rendered. Still... Looking Great!

Compositing Reel

By the way, here is some compositing stuff I have done. I really love animation, but I find compositing enjoyable as well. I used Nuke to do all the compositing and Maya to do all the rendering and 3D work.

Disappointments and Hopes

So last night I got an email saying I didn't get in to the Rhythm and Hues Animation Apprentice Program. I was just a little disappointed. Though, It wasn't much of a surprise because I hadn't heard from them in a while and it is supposed to start in like 2 weeks.

But I hope that this just means that there is something better for me coming. One door shut, is another door open. I have already applied to 13 companies and hope to apply to more in the weeks to come. If just one likes me, I will be the happiest person in the world.

Keeping my chin up for now.
