I'm glad about that, summer and I don't always get on the way winter and I do!
Not sure what I wanna type about, I'm just winging it.
True love is being able to have a throwing knife competition with your significant other! And she did it willingly!
Full days of work are surprisingly more draining than full days at varsity, even though my work day is shorter than my days at varsity because I was an over eager dork! But throwing real clients in the mix takes some getting used to. Freelance I've done, but the office environment is mildly intimidating.
I'm one month into this internship, I'm still bummed that that hasn't reflected in a paycheck of any sort but the experience is great and I'm holding thumbs they hire me at the end. It's an awesome studio full of awesome people that have made the experience significantly less daunting and highly informative (I learnt about lightwraps and the benefits and uses of 8bit vs 16bit vs 32bit renders for After Effects today)
Unfortunately I haven't touched a 3D package since I got there, but I need to do some serious catchup in Maya, seeing as I studied SoftImage. But the projects I have done have been awesome because they feel like tests to see where I can best help the studio. I've done my fair share of post production, graphic design and now storyboarding (I may have made a minor contribution to an upcoming Coco Pops advert!). Also being refereed to as a storyboard artist in an official email to a client may have been a minor thrill!
Work does mean I'm pretty short on time for personal projects which is mildly depressing, but it's relieving to have my weekends and evenings as my own, and not having to power through some crazy varsity assignment on a crazy deadline.
Although, that being said, traffic on my page has been slow of late as a consequence, so you tell me, how you doin'?
