Wonder about my fate

First dialogue stuff from iA! (and first rendered stuff too) This is my first assignment for WS4, my instructor is DW animator Jacob Gardner and he's AWESOME! Two more weeks and the workshop is over, which is kind of sad, but I enjoyed every second of it! I'm still polishing my second shot and putting together my progress reel for this block, and there's a WS3 action sequence I want to polish and render over the break so there's a lot to keep me busy until WS5 starts!

This is about 7 months old but I realized I forgot to mention it on the blog so here it is. It's a pilot for a show I worked on at Remo Studio for Nickelodeon latam. I did character design, storyboards and animatic, modeling, rigging and about half of the animation in it. I guess I can rightfully call myself a generalist by now, despite my efforts to narrow my focus down to animation (with a cup of rigging).
It was a fun project and I'm happy to have been a part of it, which is actually part of the charm of Remo: it's a fun place to work at.

iAnimate WS3 progress reel

Ok, so I'm almost trough with WS4 by now, but I never made any updates on the blog so first things first, WS3 is done!
This is my progress reel for WS3, my instructor was DW animator Manuel Aparicio. Most shots are not 100% done, but the purpose of progress reels isn't to show finished work, but progress. So there are lots of imperfections here and there, and an incomplete action sequence that I'm still working on, but this is the progress reel I submitted by the end of WS3.
I've been at iAnimate for 6 months now and it has been an amazing experience so far. I feel I've grown a ton in just 6 months, and got to meet some incredibly talented people from all over the world, so I couldn't be happier right now!
I'll try to post my iA stuff more often on the blog, but we all know I'm a lazy blogger so don't keep your hopes up. Let's just say I like to add a dose of suspense to my blogging, it's part of being a story-teller you know? Or perhaps euphemisms just help me avoid the guilt. Anyway, I'm really glad if you read this blog and really sorry for not keeping it up to date very often!
