A photographer was above us and snapped this picture(I grabbed this photo from the CalArts' online photo site I just found). The upperclassmen are, for the most part, on the sides while the incoming freshmen are all in the middle(I'm on the right side, a couple rows back in the white.) Here we go guys!
After the hallway greeting, everyone filed into the Palace to overhear the freshmen meeting. All those heads are freshmen(minus the two people closest to the camera, they're two of the third year animation teachers).
Friday was the busiest day of the week. Arrived at 6:30 in the morning for cube sign-ups which started at 8 a.m. Surprisingly enough, a couple other people were there doing the same thing. 9 a.m. was the ever chaotic class sign-ups.
I got all the classes I signed up for and am really happy with my schedule:
|POST PRODUCTION||Sonnenberg, Chris||W 7pm to 10pm|
|ADVANCED LIFE DRAWING||Cole, Cornelius||T 9am to 4pm|
|ADVANCED LIFE DRAWING (JUNIORS)||Hormozi, Marjan||Th 9am to 4pm|
|ADVANCED TRADITIONAL ANIMATION III||Cedeno, Mike||T Th 7pm to 10pm|
|ADVANCED STORY DEVELOPMENT||Fulp, David||M 7pm to 10pm|
|ADV COMPUTER ANIMATION JUNIORS||Griffith, Greg||M 1pm to 4pm & T 4pm to 7pm|
|DIRECTING FOR ANIMATORS||Petkov, Roumen||F 9:30am to 12 Noon|
Tuesdays will definitely be the hardest(classes literally back to back from 9 a.m. until 10 at night!)And yep, I'm taking two life-drawing classes---gotta work on my draftsmanship this year, along with a plethora of other things.
Over the weekend I've been busy turning my new cube(number 25 to be precise), which is gigantic--it's like 3-4 times bigger than both of my previous cubicals---from this:
The colors got all messed up in this photo. The next photo does the cube a lot more justice color-wise:
I went the extra-mile and actually painted the walls--so much better than white.
Well, that's all for now. Next post will be all about the new classes.
