Animation Mentor – Class 2

Six months in to my Animation Mentor course and I’ve reached the end of class 2. My previs job in London is over and I’m now back in San Francisco taking a 3 month leave of absence from AM to get married. If I have time amongst all the planning I’ll be starting a small animation project of my own to keep what I’ve learnt so far from trickling out of my brain.

I was planning on posting my AM work every week but I’ve been so busy with work and moving recently, that would mean spending less time on the assignment.

I’ll post a progress reel at the end of each term with the odd extra bit like Tailor here. I was quite happy with how this one turned out. Could use a bit more polishing but there’s no time, got to move on to the next assignment…

Basic Foundations: Week 1

Class 1 of Animation Mentor has begun and almost immediately, I am offered a job! I’ll talk about it more in a future post but it means I’m moving to the outskirts of London for 6 months. I had to change my Q&A time from 3pm to 6am so I was lucky enough to have 2 Q&A sessions this week with different mentors. A really interesting mix of students in both groups.

Nothing to show you yet but I’m excited about the rest of the term.

Animation School

I’m back in the UK for a while and I’ve just been accepted as a student at Animation Mentor which is a great online school I discovered while I was in San Francisco. If you’re reading this, you are probably also an AM student, so hi!

Over the next 18 months, if I can succesfully juggle my animation schooling with work, I will use this blog to document my transformation from motion editor/crowd TD to ANIMATOR.

This new focus should result in more regular updates on this blog starting with bouncing balls and progressing to characters and acting. Eventually, if all goes well, I’ll have an awesome new animation reel when I graduate. Hopefully I’ll still have time for the occasional silly sideline which I’ll stick on my tumblr. I’m also @dunkr on twitter.
