BA completed, Glammies over, Job hunt; begin!

Hello everyone!

Well, just to clarify, 3rd year, I'd say, is pretty much over.  It was quite sad today, shaking goodbye these familiar faces I've gotten to know over the last few years of my education lifestyle and also receiving a rough outline of my final grade.

Although, for my final major project I managed to score myself a lovely 2:1, which I'm truly pleased about.  It's such a relief to get a good mark and I'm hoping when I get my results in the post for my BA Computer Animation degree, I'll be getting a pleasing grade.  But I don't want to excite myself just yet.

Glammies was awesome.  Congratulations to all the first years for putting on a great show, the lecturers for organising such an awesome Glammies and after party, the nominees and Glammies winners, the highly commended names (yey I congratulate myself, ha) and to the DJ for his karaoke.  ;)

It was such a good day, and meet the grads (although, at first it was nerve racking) was a great experience.  It was nice to be remembered by a Dinamo employer last year about rigging, so that made me over the moon.  Dished out the business cards and had a good night.

I know I'm going to miss a lot of the faces on this course and naturally without them I wouldn't be where I am today and I hope when others get to my position in life, they get the same feeling.

But anyway, enough of my waffling!  Here's an updated version of my show reel.

Just need to sort out my CV (tidy it up a fair bit!) and I'm good to go. :)  Enjoy!



So just an update on what's happening...

It's Glammies Friday!
Business cards arrived TODAY!
I managed to get a weeks worth of work experience as someone approached my website and contacted me to rig a character for them.  Apparently I'm going to get IMDB credited as it's a "Hollywood Feature Film".

So that's pretty cool.  Got given the mesh yesterday and it has to be completed by Sunday, fully rigged, facial rig, cloth and hair (although I'm not so sure on the two latter...) and skinning.  Ridiculous.  Also, I have no idea how to do hair!  And as my girlfriend is down tomorrow, thursday and friday are pretty un-available.  Ah well.  I can always e-mail the guy and say what the score is.

So far I've:

  • Full skeleton
  • FK/IK on the right arm
  • IK on the right leg
  • Spine controls
Need to do (rig-wise):
  • FK/IK on the left arm
  • IK on the left leg
  • Neck and head controls
  • Facial control
I'm hoping to get the arms and legs (maybe the neck and head) done tonight and facial controls on saturday, as well as the hair and cloth.  Fun times ahead!  Apparently the "Hollywood Feature Film" is called "Pizza Man". 

S'gunna be lols.
