@00:29Yes, I just graduated at the beginning of August, still less than a month ago. I took a little vacation in North Carolina for a week and after I got back into town I basically did an overhaul on my house to store away some things, make more space for the upcoming years. I'm looking into applying for jobs places... My biggest issue that I have right now is that I'm a generalist and I don't know a lot of studios to apply to in the first place around here. I'm well acquainted with all the major studios, though I need to really specialize in what I do in order to get a job there. So, I've been taking iAnimate classes, and starting the 26th I'm going to be taking Animation Mentor classes. I'll ultimately decide which program works better for me, and stick to just one of them long-term. In the meantime, though, I'm definitely still looking for a full-time gig. Thinking of doing some freelance on the side until I get a job. I also intend to submit my film to festivals, so that's a priority on my list right now too, to get a DVD of it sent out to different festivals. Holy Film festival application fees, Batman, it's gonna be expensive.

-This is only a clip from my thesis film-

FULL FILM HERE: [link]
password: thesis
**Be sure to watch it in HD!**

Because the copyright to my film is owned by USC, I am not allowed to host more than 10% of the film on DeviantART.

If you would like to watch the complete film, it's hosted on Vimeo and password-protected. For a limited time, I'm providing the password here in my DA description, so I don't get overly swarmed with notes in the next two days.

If you didn't click on the link above, here it is again!!

FILM: [link] password: thesis

I want to give a special thanks to :iconla-vita-a-colori: for helping me through almost all the backgrounds of this. I could not have finished in time without her help, and everything she's done means the world to me.

I'm so glad to finally have some free time again. I was often working 17 - 20 hour days on this animation for months on end. I tallied up the hours for just my summer alone, and I totalled 740 hours. Since the end of May, that's over 29 straight days of 24 hours each, in the span of 2.25 months, NOT including all of my hours working with my composers and my sound designer, and all the rendering that I've had to do over the course of the summer. Animation is a lot, lot, lot of work. But it's -SO- rewarding in the end. And, hopefully, I can crack a laugh out of you guys in the process : )

@00:30I used Adobe Flash and Adobe After Effects. My main tool was my Wacom Cintiq. It took months of working about 14 - 17 hours per day.

@00:30It's a little more complicated than that. You can go here to look into downloading the official programs: [link] but they're not free. My master's suite version was about 400 dollars (somewhere around 450 after tax), which I got through my university. There are other ways of getting it for free, like pirating the programs then cracking the passwords, but I can't link you to that, or I'd violate the terms of service on this site.

@00:29Well, he does data entry for Kaiser Permanente, and although it's not resume's he's getting and changing info on, the endless number of faxes, just when he thinks he's caught up does happen quite a bit.

As far as how I'm doing, I'm doing quite well. Got a new job at a different place and it's treating me quiet well. So, if that was your thesis, does that mean you've recently graduated?
