New Beginnings

Wow, so... it's been almost 8 months since my last post. I decided to wipe everything, as it really wasn't pertinent anymore to what's been going on in my life. So sorry to all of you who left comments! Just a quick recap of highlights since January:

Finished my 3d character
Attended the PIXAR workshop
Started my 2nd year film (still not done... haha- ALMOST!)
My professor, John Canemaker, won an Oscar for his short film
Interviewed James Baxter
Screened some work at the SAL SAS
Decided to graduate a year early from NYU animation
Refurbished a really oldschool Oxberry disk, made it ACME registration
Found out I was going to be an uncle?! Sweet.
Obtained one of my mentors' desk/disk- started refurbishing that too
Read a lot of books- Illusion of Life, Nine Old Men, etc.
Bought a slew of animated films to keep the inspiration going

I'm sure there's more that I'm forgetting, but that gives you a pretty good idea of what I've been up to. Now its crunch time to finish my film and prepare for my next one. I'll be posting pics and videos soon enough. Till then!
