Class 2, Week 12 - New Progress Reel, last Q&A with David Tart

Oh the last week of the term, always a sad sad week for every AM student. It always means that it's going to be the last time you're going to be face-to-face with your mentor, it means that everything that was taught should be perfectly learnt by now, it means that they're going to separate you from your class mates and peer buddies... for some, it even means the end of AM, as they're on class 6!
But the positive side of it is that you get to see compilations of everyone's work - that's a mandatory thing at AM, to make a progress reel with all your class assignments. Here are mine, I tried to make it nicer this time with some last minute renders and a soundtrack. Have fun!

Class 2, Week 10 & 11 - Zombie shot assignment finished, winning the RTS award and interview

Hey folks!
Sorry for not posting last week, busy busy times. I'll be quick, tho. So I've struggled to get everyone's feedback in, but i will surely do soon. This is the final rsult, which I consider acceptable to hand in. I would say that it's far fro finished...

And now for some news about the Royal Television Society prize in animation... An interview was published, you can see it here - (University of Salford website)

And a video of the ceremony... I wish I had been there! Kate Corbin, the head of the Animation Degree at Salford Uni, received the prize in my place.

That's all for now!
Keep it up and thanks for checking out ;)

Class 2, Week 9 - Push the dead, before it pulls you!

One more week is over! My shot had some changes, the more relevant being the ending: You'll see for yourself, who am I to ruin your surprise! Hopefully you will like it:

And for this week I have some extra bonus stuff! First, there's my mentor David tart's new short - it will show you what happens in the construction of an animation. Then, two animation related movies that I can't wait to see. Despicable Me was one of my favorite animation movies, mostly because that's my type of humor, plain and stupid, and who can resist those little yellow minions? The other one is Iron Man, hulk, Captain America, Thor, etc, all together. Seems interesting!
