Hey lovelies of tumblr, I haven’t been active at all lately and probably won’t be for a while. I have been working for three months as a rigger/animator on a kid’s tv show produced by Amazon, and the deadline is very close now, I work eveyday non stop (10-12 hours per days) and most of the time the extra hours are not payed. Well, I was kind of expecting this, I have been warned and all, London is nuts, the indutry is collapsing and I am in the middle of it.
The good side of this is that moving to London was indeed a very good career choice, and I am learning and meeting a lot of incredibly talented people, some cool peeps for world famous animation schools, and some experienced artist who worked on very good movies (like Happy Feet, Cloudy and ,omg, Pirates!, hard not too fangirl hard), and all these people are giving me excelent and constructive feedback on my work and i am getting better everyday. I got a lots of compliments too and i’m getting noticed for my work uvu
In two weeks I am starting a new job at MPC as Rigger TD, it means I am going to work on Disney’s Jungle Book, I AM SO EXCITED ! It is an excellent job for me, I am hired as a technical director even if I have no experience in feature films (only in series and ads) and never worked as a full time rigger (I’ve been a maya generalist so far). IT’S SO COOL, and after that i’m leaving the fuck out of this country, no wonder why this industry is dying when you see how it treats its artist. I can’t believe brittish people telling me “yeah that’s how it is” i’m like fuck no.
