Maybe a monthly update is a more realistic goal for this thing.....
At the end of December I finished my contract as layout/character animator at Jellyfish Pictures and for the next few weeks felt quite lost! Learning and working in a fun, professional environment was better than I had initially imagined it. I am very proud of the work I managed to do there and even more proud to be able to say I was part of that team - even if it was only for a short period of time.
A few weeks after Jellyfish I was lucky enough to start a new job as pre-vis animator at Proof Inc based in Shepperton Studios!
It has been a great experience working with such a diverse team of animators and generalists. Unfortunately I'm not clear how much I can say about the project so for now I will keep quiet about it until I get confirmation on how much I can say!
It is an exciting project for sure and I'm learning a lot more about adjusting and animating with cameras at different angles in a scene.
In the meantime I have continued studying with Animation Mentor and also made a good start on building a new showreel - deadline for completion is the end of this month!
The hope is that I will be able to put a link to the new showreel in the next blog post along with other work such as sketching that I'm slowly but surely picking up again.
