ANI 128a (Intermediate 3D animation) was a lot of fun. We worked on a few shots over the semester, learning about body mechanics. I can't wait to do more shots like these and apply some character to them as well.
In October, I took part in the 24-Hour Animation Contest for Students on a team with my good friends Alvin Concepcion, Amanda Sharpe, Clayton Chan, and Oscar Guevara. We had 24 hours to create a 30-second animated short based on the theme, "What would you do if you only had 24 hours left to live?" We competed with about 50 teams from a bunch of colleges, and we ended up placing 4th! It was a great experience to work on an entire production with great friends.
For Physics of Animation, we had a stop motion assignment involving character animation. In one day, Chris Helfrich, Jenn Long and I created this love story between two snails:
What a great and challenging semester. Working on full productions like these was challenging and incredibly rewarding. I look forward to developing my skills and making more collaborations. Yay!
