Some highlights from my Portfolio Day portfolio!
A visdev compilation from a story I’m developing. The recruiters liked the finished pieces, but were more interested in the way I sketched (simple/clear drawings are good for storyboards!)
Good day! Now back to my student film. *~*
My 2nd year participating in Portfolio Day at CalArts!
I put out a visual development portfolio, but I got a callback from Disney for story? Unexpected, but exciting!
littlelilydraws asked: Hello, I'm a first year animation major (at my local community college) and I really admire your work! I was wondering, with your experience, what are some things that makes someone more successful in the field?
Thanks a million! A lot of people say that you need to have 2 out of 3 of these qualities - you have to be fast at what you do, super talented, or charismatic.
But I think the best thing you can be is kind. Animation is a pretty tiny field (you never know who you’re going to end up working with and being decent is just a generally good thing to be).
Our students have a yearly tradition called “48 Hour Films” each November, where they gather together and make a short individual film on a specific theme over a weekend. BFA4 student Charley Hodgkins put them together on his YouTube page - enjoy!!
Some fine, 48-hour quality duck animations.
Anonymous asked: The fact you have the luxury to sit behind a computer and talj about being opressed really says something.
Woahh man. Feel free to message me privately off of anon anytime and we can talk about filial piety and western orientalism to our hearts content.
