Home stretch

Saturday, March 19, 2011
With only 9 days to go before the Spring semester starts the excitement and a healthy amount of anxiety surrounds March 28th at noon PST when the virtual doors open for school.

Recently I spent more time on the Skype group that fellow soon-to-be-students hang out on. For future classes I highly recommend creating a group like that. I've gotten to know quite a few people, and hearing their stories about what led them to AM makes the whole thing more real. People have varied backgrounds and I've been learning some interesting things and the people are great.

Yesterday was the weekly AM coffee talk/Q&A. This week one of the engineers at AM named Kevin described how engineers at studios work to help create the tools to support the production pipelines at studios. I found it interesting, but perhaps because of my background in engineering, I wished that we had animator from a studio describing the same workflow from their perspective to balance things out. He told a lot of stories about past jobs and I could tell he really loved what he does. He's working on some top secret projects at AM that we will see in a couple of semesters but no word on what they might be.
