Animation Mentor, Completed

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

I honestly didn’t really know what exactly to write about in this post, so I just made it short and sweet. Just figured I needed to update the blog with something.

And so my time as a student at Animation Mentor is finally over. The last assignment has been delivered, the last eCritique has been watched etc. etc. It’s been a long journey, and it’s a little sad that it has come to an end, yet it’s been really great to take a little time off and just relax

So what am I going to do now that AM is over? Well, I still don’t have a finished demo reel. I’m not really happy with the one I delivered as my final assignment at AM, and it certainly won’t get me a job. So the plan righ now is to spend a few months working on some new shots. Probably joing a few 11 Second Club contests, and eventually go over a few of my AM assignments that still have potential.

Once I’m done with that, depending on what I end up with, I’ll probably start sending out my demo reel to companies, to see what kind of reaction I get. If nothing comes out of that I’ll keep working until something happens.

I’m also in the process of wrting about Animation Mentor as a school, and my experience of it. Good and bad. Figured it might be an interesting read for anyone interested in attending. Hopefully I’ll have it up soon.
