Winter Break Conclusion

Well I'm back at CalArts and all settled in. It was a great winter-break and I thoroughly enjoyed being back home in Oregon. A big shout-out to the Oregon animation gang who made my last day a memorable one! Oregon was wet, windy, snowy, and absolutely bone-chillingly cold...Valencia greeted me with sunshine and like 70 degree weather---bit of an adjustment, but I'm sure the main building is still a pretty cold temperature. haha.
Well from here on out it's all film---classes begin on Monday, but all of them(minus critical studies of course) are focused on completing this film. I worked out a lot of staging issues over my break, finalized my characters' designs, music, and even title(Fight or Flight)--still need to polish my backgrounds, reboard about 35% of it, and create, hopefully, one more animatic and then onto my highly anticipated, just dying to get to, animation stage! Alright, well I'm off to go see how my cube survived break and see who else is around!

Hey fellow CalArtians: Assuming I have the correct film deadline of April 21st, we have 102 days until it's all due---the countdown officially beings eh? Oh yeah and the updates on my blog will probably slow down and I'll aim for a monthly update....especially when this countdown gets down to the line, anyways....Here's to a busy and hopefully successful 2008!

Wow, sounds exciting! Looks like you're really putting a lot into this film, it will definitely turn out great!

(oh, and if you happen to find out when the portfolio reviews begin, let us know ;)

Car2oon: I just really enjoy the characters and story so I really want it to work out. :) Here's hoping it does turn out great. And I'll be sure to keep my ears out for any portfolio review news. I remember last year it was said they don't start until February. I know there's Freshmen portfolio reviews(ahhh!) by the end of January, so after they finish with us Freshmen they'll probably move onto you guys. :) That's my guess at this point...

Sweeney: ha, ha, ha. CZL POST! ;)
