Hey Dan and Mike!
Here's a sum up of the groups I am working with. My primary projects that I will be working on are:
- Smitten (Matt Vadis) - Assistant Character Animator
- Raven Project (Sophie Lodge) - Character Designer, Storyboarder, Animatic Artist.
- The Deep (Andy Kinnear) - Animator, Character Design
- Heroes 1.0 (Kofi Ansah) - Animator
- Unhatched (Tom Ritchie) - Animator
I have considered taking on my own pitch (Spooked) for the 30sec alternative piece. I feel that I could do it, but since I already have a lot on my plate, I will not pursue it seriously as a project. However, I may consider doing some little animation tests of the monster, since I feel that he is a strong design, and would be fun to animate for my showreel.
For Dan's unit, my strength is as an Artist (Designs, concept, animatics), but I feel that I am also a strong 2D animator. I would like to concentrate my efforts on improving my 3D animation, so I think I will specialise in Animation, so I can improve in that area. I have spoken to Clym and he as agreed to teach me some basic rigging, so that would help contribute towards my Technical studies.
Please correct me if I need to revise the above plans for either unit.
Sorry that was a long e-mail. I hope that is all clear. I look forward to hearing from you. See ya Monday!
