Big news - I'm going to work as an Animator at MPC!
Sadly, I am moving out from TeamTO, way sooner than I had planned/expected. The studio is amazing and it is growing really fast - I'm sure it will be even bigger in just some months. They are currently working on 4 series and 1 feature film simultaneously! And all of them really cool projects. And the future projects, oh oh! They are brilliant, trust me! There's a LOT of talent, I've met countless good animators and made very good friends, that I hope to work again with in the future someday. It was hard to leave them as I was loving my life there, and it felt way too early.
So why leave only after a couple of months working there, if everything was going so great? Well, I had a really hard decision to make - This big studio contacted me to work on a feature film, a studio that I admire for a long time already now. That studio is MPC, London. A unique chance to be pat of such a big project, in such a talented and famous studio can't be denied! It will be a really big challenge and I will do my very best to be up to the standards. It will be a great chance to evolve as an animator - in fact, I'm going to be in the same studio as my class 5 mentor, Arslan Elver, who already helped me evolve a lot! That was nearly an year ago, and to know that we're about to be teammates is incredible.
MPC is a VFX Studio that does feature film and commercial work. It is based in London, Vancouver, Montreal, New York, Los Angeles and Bangalore (I will be in London). They are one of the top world studios in what they do, and I dare to say that I'm 100% sure that you were amazed by their work at least a dozen of times in your life, even if you didn't know it was them. Some projects they have worked on, just to mention a few, are: Harry Potter, The Life of Pi, Pirates of the Caribbean, X-Men, Wrath of the Titans, Man of Steel, The Chronicles of Narnia. You can also check their Filmography. Here's an example of their work:
I will be working on a feature film called Guardians of the Galaxy. It's a Marvel / Walt Disney Pictures film, directed by James Gunn. The Guardians are a group of super heroes, from the same universe as the Avengers. I'll let you do your own research if you are interested in learning more, I hate telling spoilers ;)
So to end this post, I just want to say that it's such a big honor to be part of this. I will give my 110%, and I look forward to learn from "the masters"!
Wish me luck, I will need it!
