Blue Sky!

Okay, so I wasn't able to update my blog right away, because I was too busy packing and moving!!!! :)

I'm in NY working at Blue Sky Studios for a couple months as a temporary animator on Ice Age 3!
It's incredibly fun and exciting. I know I'm going to learn a ton!!!
My first day at the studio was Monday and everybody is so helpful and friendly, I love it. It was really great to finally meet everybody!

If you haven't checked out the Treehouse Studios Lost Boyz videos... take a look :)

These guys work a few rows away from me and are hilarious!
I'll embed their last episode here, because it has a real tv interview at the studio.. :)
here's the real tv interview:

lol.. now here's the Treehouse episode..

So funny! I love work! :)

Animation Mentor Graduation 2009 and more!

Wow... so I know it has been awhile... so this is going to be a big post!

It's entirely too late to be typing this but I can't sleep, lol... I'm too excited for sleep ;)

This last weekend was amazing (to say the least)!!! I honestly don't know where to begin... so I apologize if I jump around :)

How about starting out with my first ever animation demo reel...

Since my last post I have been super duper busy finishing up my short film in class 6 and putting this reel together.

I honestly cannot believe how much I've learned in such a short amount of time. It truly has been an amazing 18 months and I wouldn't change it for the world. Thanks so much to all of my friends, family, mentors, and of course all of the staff at Animation Mentor.

So.. I flew down to San Francisco Friday morning with my parents and we just got back tonight. Friday was a long haul since we got up at 3:30am to catch the plane in time to make it to the Animation Mentor Job Fair by 1pm. The Job Fair was so amazing though! I had such a great time not only talking to recruiters but also seeing all of my friends again and just ... I don't even have words for it.. it was awesome! I'm so convinced animators are the most fun people to hang out with ever! :)

btw- I didn't take a whole lot of pictures myself.. but I love a bunch of the photos Alexiss Memmott took and I dare say she wouldn't mind me posting them :)

Ok, so moving along..... Saturday... Saturday was a HUGE day :)
I graduated from Animation Mentor at Fort Mason, oh and btw the weather was beautiful.... (70 degrees in San Francisco in January and crystal clear? honestly? who could ask for anything more? ;)

(I don't think I can possibly write this entire post tonight.. I'm finally I'll try to get back to this tomorrow and finish it the rest of the way)
