I removed some of my stuff from the gallery and scraps. You probably won't even notice them missing.
I did get an Art Tumblr
specifically for my art. I was going to use my other one for art, but it ended up being a general tumblr. Go figure.
3rd year at Sheridan College is well under way and things seem to be moving relatively well. We're making a film this year, so I'm pretty excited about that. I'm not sure how posting art related to the film goes, but I'll probably save them for after the film is completed. It seems like the thing to do. It's an interesting concept so I hope the final product comes out just as interesting. My pitch for the film wasn't chosen, so I think I might do that one for my fourth year film. We'll see. I have plenty of time to revise and create a new idea too.
We've been introduced to stop motion this year. I'm really not a fan of stop motion. The only stop motion film I actually enjoyed 100% was Paranorman. That film was gorgeous. A few people are bothering me about my dislike for it and they're confusing my dislike for it as a lack of respect for the medium. This is not the case. I've always respected stop motion animators and artists. It takes a lot of talent to make those puppets and sets and it takes a lot of talent and knowledge to animate them and make them look alive. Stop motion is straight-ahead animation. It's a lot of work. In high school, I took a tour of Cuppa Coffee Studios
and got to see behind the scenes. Bumping a light or desk could ruin a whole shot, which could be a days worth of work or maybe even a weeks worth of work depending on the complexity of the shot. It's like booting up your computer to find your hard drive is fried and you didn't back it up. Anyways, it's a lot of work. I respect the people and the medium, but it's just not my choice of career. That being said, I will still put my all into my stop motion class and enjoy it.
