Time management skillsTime management skills.. well I have none!!! Having a full time job and doing animation mentor is going to be tricky. My hat goes off to all the students who have been doing this all along, not to mention those with families, it is truly an amazing feat. How do you do it? When do you sleep? For me it is going to take some getting used to. So to compensate I am trying to keep my animation idea to a manageable size, I even choose a shorter clip. I am staging my character sitting down, that should help a little since I won't have to worry about animating legs and feet, although I will have to pay closer attention to the eyes and fingers, a trade off I guess. I still haven't revised my grease pencil test to a level I feel good about. I need to fix that up before moving onto the 3D Bishop, the trouble is I am never home! Looks like Saturday will be my only animating day again this week, we are moving on Sunday, so much is going on. I guess time management is one of the skills we are going to need to develop to make in this industry.
This week's lecture on Eyes and Blinks was taught my my mentor, Jason Ryan!! He really went in depth to a lot of different types of eye moves and blinks and why you would use them. great stuff. I hopefully can incorporate some of these ideas into my assignment.
On a similar not a bunch of great blocking pieces from the students this week. Wow, they are all getting so much better at an alarming rate. I think will all the excitement that has been happening around campus, some people have taken a look at their workflow and really ramped up their routine. Great job everyone!
