California is on fire! Again... You can see the smoke from my cube! just a quick note: doesn't that photo at first glance make it look like calarts itself is on fire. The only effect it has had on calarts so far is the I-5 has been closed.
So we have had two friday night lectures in the past two weeks. The first one was done by Don Hahn, a producer at Disney. It was really cool and informational. He talked a lot about what makes good animation and gave a lot of insite as to what a producer does and what they look for when taking on projects. He also showed us the Disney short Lorenzo, which was good and apparently is a rare thing to see as it is not published anywhere.
Yesterdays lecture was Leo Sanchez. He had a lot of insight to what it was like to be a modeler and he talked a lot about the changes going on in the disney pipeline. I don't think i can get into specifics but it seemed that the way they went about working on 3d productions felt a lot like how people work on traditional projects. He also showed us Glago's Guest. Glago's Guest is the Disney short that is going to be shown before Bolt. Tonight I'm going to go to a preview showing of bolt with some friends from Calarts.
You know that saying "don't go shopping for groceries if you are hungry?" Well don't go to Walmart a couple days after halloween when you know you cube needs that one little thing. Walmart was having a clearance sale on all there Halloween items and i went crazy and bought lights and a jack-o-lantern! Ok I didn't go that crazy or at least i was able to contain the crazy (light-sabers were like 3 bucks but i convinced myself not to get one). Anyway My cube looks pretty cool now.
So i forgot to post these from last week's life drawing but here is some new stuff for you to look at.
