this summer i'll be working at a locally based animation studio called Plexipixel. They specialize in - you guessed it - flash! They're starting to dip into 3D stuff too, but at least it's maya, which is my 3D program of choice. BUT! this is really cool. it means i won't have to sign up for a cartoon network internship, which would've been great except for the fact that it's 500 miles away and unpaid. this is a real job (worth class credit eheheh) and it's only 15 minutes away from where I live.
their website is http://www.plexipixel.com. They've done flash work for Microsoft, Napster, Universal Studios, Real Networks, the studio behind the esurance commericals, Ghostbot, and a lot more. i can't wait to work there and show 'em what i got. it's my first animation job ever, and i'm not even out of school yet.
and one thing is for sure, the work will be much more rewarding than school recently. at school, it's like i'm having 5 jobs instead of one, and they're all demanding eachother's alloted time. and we don't do flash work either.
but eh, school is done on april 22nd, and i start work in mid-may. but until the 22nd things are going to be pretty hectic. not only is it finals, but i'm moving out of my apartment into a bigger one with 5 other people. it's practically down the street, but i'm on the 3rd floor and my room is a disaster.
i've been trying REALLY hard to finish a cartoon i started on valentine's day.. it's not even 2 minutes long. that gives you an idea of how much school has taken over my life. but i like how it's turning out and it should be done really soon, depending on how quickly i finish all my school and moving business. and i should have time to do flash over the summer even with my job. there's no possible way my job will be as hard as my school (if it was i would have to remove sleeping from my schedule entirely).
so uhhh yeah!!!! here's a dumb screenshot from my dumb cartoon!
