I just flicked onto my profile and realised that my last post was in 2009 ! Which is just silly really..
I'll just quickly state now, that I'm going to up my work rate tenfold this autumn, and hopefully get myself an inter-ship / work experience / some sort of job in the animation field, that is the plan. I've had abit of a moment of clarity about what I want to do with my life career-wise, and have drawn up a rough plan for how I want things to go in the next few years -
Year 1) Build a respectable portfolio / showreel to show animation studios.
Year 2) Get some sort of work in a animation studio based in my home town (Manchester)
Year 3) Take the skills I learned from animating at home and in the studio and move to London (where most of the animation companies in the UK are based) and become a supremely qualified and bad-ass animator, and spend my working career making something that will last instead of slogging through with the bar work / 9 - 5 / unskilled and truly lame jobs!
Year 4) ???
Year 5) Profit.
I've also been steaming ahead with an animation for Halloween, which I only had the idea for a few days ago so I've given myself a very tight time frame to work with considering Halloween is only 5 days away. If I do get it done by then, then I will have managed to churn out 3 animations in 1 months which is an unreal work rate compared to my usual 1 every year :)
I'm feeling a lot more focused, am trying all the time to improve and learn more about my animating, and seem to have so much more drive now that I know where I want to be. (Sorry for sounding cheesy here). But yeh! I will try and keep this page updated with any relevant advancements or news.
Take it easy. Peace x
