So... a lot has happened this month. Just this past weekend, I graduated from Cal State University Long Beach with a BFA in Illustration (Animation Emphasis), had a SUPER EPIC party the following day, and have been recovering from that party since. Seriously.
I also have decided to start watching movies like no tomorrow, to study from them and to figure out what kind of film that I would like to make in the future. So, I've borrowed some books, peered through pages, and will be renting Redbox films all summer long/ find other means to get my movie goal going. My goal is to at least brush up on my film knowledge, study cinematography, camera movement, lighting, and most of all - how live action films tell a story, and how it differs in animated films.
Then there is the matter with the senior film. Halie and I will animate and work on it during the summer...eventually. It still is a project that I am passionate about completing - but that will now take some time.
Also will still be building my portfolio in hopes of getting into a studio for the next round of open call portfolio submissions. I must be prepared and lay in waiting. Like a tiger. (Not like a Panda.) Well, also aggressively campaign my works as well, but that will come.
For now, I think I deserve this little time off.
