Animation Smears, Multiples and Other Animation Gimmicks

The Animation Smears, Multiples and Other Animation Gimmicks blog is simply amazing. For me personally I love to see what crazy things other animators get up to with smears and multiples and I find it really inspiring. I'd love to see more of this in 3D animation. Anyway, go check out the blog and geek out over pages and pages of animation goodness!

Work experience and internship

[I wrote this weeks ago but only just noticed that it didn't get posted for whatever reason.]

It's been waaaaaaaaay too long since I updated this blog. Apologies to anyone who may follow my ramblings. I've been quite busy with iAnimate, travelling around for interviews and other such business. Things have settled a bit more now, kind of, here's what's happening:

I'm currently sat in Sheffield and will be here for two weeks for work experience with the amazing guys at:

The studio was started by Bradford University students and has since employed a few more of them too so I'll be among a familiar-ish bunch. They specialize in short films that are mainly used for 3D/4D rides as well as work for TV and adverts. One of the guys who runs the studio taught a course at Bradford too, the CGFX module and another came in to speak about his career. It's going to be great working with them and I'm really looking forward to my first day tomorrow. At the moment all I know is that I'll be animating at some point.

After the two weeks at RedStar I'm back off to Northest Wales for a week with my girlfriend and then the following weekend it'll be time to run away to Cambridge for a six month internship with:

Whilst at Ninja Theory I'll be spending my time as a Cinematics Intern working on their current project. I know there'll be animation involved but there will also be mocap editing which I'm really looking forward to learning and learning from. So I move to Cambridge in two weeks into a house with the other 5 interns which should be lots of fun. Like being in a student house again! Can't wait :D
