I can breath again



This is my flour sack, Animated fully in flash, without tweening god forbid! I like using flash to mimic classical animation because you can change the spacing without changing the drawing, the onion skin mode alows you to see your arcs very clearly, and focus on the timing without worrying about other stuff.

Well, First year has come to an end, It's been one heck of a ride!

My favorite learning experience this year has been assisting Nick Thornborrow on his wonderful grad film "The Foolish Bet". Mitch and I really benefited from working for someone so talented and knowledgeable, He's a natural born director. It was a thrill to see it with an audience today at the fourth year screening, sensing and hearing the enthusiastic response.

Of all I've seen today, "Key Lime Pie" by Trev Jimemez was Simply incredible!
I'd like to further congratulate Sam Bradley-- The Lighthouse was full of energy! Shaz Lym--the Scooter Goon is a really great cartoon!
Casper, Tim, Olga, Johannes... you guys did our school justice.

peace.

Hey Amir! First off, the animation is great man. Way better than the flour sack i did back in the day! heh. I'm impressed. Gets me excited to see what you're going to end up putting together for your film down the road...

Secondly, thanks a ton for the comment about my film. I'm really glad you enjoyed it! I definitely had a good time working on it.. but in the end, a film is made for its audience.. so i'm glad the lighthouse has that.

Make sure to keep putting new work up, I'll keep an eye on your blog.. have a great summer too.
