So my first week of Animation Mentor is official, and I'm loving it !!!
We started off this week with an introduction video where most of the people representing AM and a lot of other animators from the industry talk about how it's like being an animator, and basically, why it is so awesome to have this as a profession.
And because this was the first week, we didn't really have an assignment yet. We only had to fill out our profiles and make sure that we had a picture, and also introduce ourselves at the weekly Q&A. (which was a blast !)
So I met my mentor for this first term, Ray Chase, who is currently the directing animator on Free Birds at ReelFX and who is an awesome guy in general, and I also met my fellow classmates ^^ !
Allthough it was really early for me (5 am), it was a very interesting first meeting with all of them, and I really liked the atmosphere that was hanging in that virtual classroom. I'm really looking forward to get my first assignment and to continue my animation journey !
And also, from now on I'll try to post in this blog every week, probably around Sunday / Monday evening ;)
