The Moment You've All Been Waiting For...

It's here! My final animation for the 160 class! For the assignment we had to animate the cougar that will appear. The cougar alone was over 80 hand-drawn frames and hours and hours of work... which after you watch this will make you ask, "Is that it?" Yes, comrades. Yes it is.
Enjoy, and feel free to comment.

Hurray!

Well, it's official. I'll be applying for the Animation program this August! I'm really stoked but also pretty freaked out. I have so much work ahead of me!

Sorry for the long time since the last post, I've been hard at work on my final animation. I'll have it up here by Wednesday!

Kung Fu Panda is...


Awesomeness!!! I got to see a special free screening in Sandy yesterday, and let me just say that Kung Fu Panda is now one of my all-time favorite CG films!!! From start to finish, it was hilarious, amazing, exciting and even... heart-warming? Dreamworks Animation definitely threw a sucker punch with this one. After the bland Shrek movies (the first isn't bad), and the eco-preachy Bee Movie, Kung Fu Panda shows that they really are capable of amazing flicks! Jack Black did an incredible job of pumping energy into the movie without throwing it over the top. The intro to the movie was great and carried a high-level of "bodacity." And the closing credits were just pur-ty. I want to see it again but, due to budgetary issues, will probably have to wait for the dollar theater. GO SEE IT!
