It's been a while since I updated anyone in the community on my happenings lately, so I figured since some big things in my life have been happening I'd update everyone!College
So college was the first big happening and probably the biggest! I applied to about 6 colleges and god into 4. It took forever but I finally found out about financial aid and decided on USC! I was accepted to the Animation/Digital Art program in the School of Cinematic Arts (which is just got a new building, from money donated by George Lucas!) So next fall I'll begin my formal education in Animation/Digital Art! I got to visit the campus and USC (especially the school of cinematic arts) is amazing! The facilities they have are mindblowing, the connections invaluable and the social atmosphere tons of fun. I'm so excited for it, and can't wait to finally be free! Internship
My second big happening began last Friday, and continued today. Over the past month or so, while at school I've been working on lining up a senior project (unpaid internship wherever I can get one, and is approved by a committee.) As a senior at my school, I get the last month of school off for a Senior Project that I line up. I pestered and pestered and pressed, gave out my website and finally got an internship with my first choice, Bent Image Lab!!!
Today was my second day there and it's amazing. I'm working with the CG department (as they do stop-motion, compositing, CG, etc.) It's amazing to be working by professionals and watch them work on commercials and things that everyone will see on TV!
If you want to read more about this, I have a public blog here!
If you have any questions feel free to ask! I'm just so excited to be in this position right now with so many opportunities and my whole life ahead of me!
Thanks for listening to me ramble a bit.
