Class 6 - Week 12

Hey everyone,

to officially finish my AM journey I definitely have to make the last post for class 6.
It was such a great experience to learn next to so many talented animators. I'm looking forward to the point when we all work side by side on a big project.
For now I will keep working on my animations and try to get better on the acting side as well.
I will continue posting my progress here.
I hope you will check back on my blog from time to time. It was fun writing short posts along the program. Thanks for taking the time to check the blog.
Take care,

Class 6 - Week 11

Hey guys,

week 11 assignment uploaded, I got my e-crit. Is it now over? Nothing more to come?
It really feels strange to know that the next weekend will not focus around making the deadline on Sunday for the submission. 
I learned so much during the program, honestly everything I know about animation. I know, without the help of my friends form AM my reel would not be what it is today. So thanks a lot to all of you :)
Here is my blocking progress for the new shot I started. I am going to change a few sections completely and see how it feels than. I will keep posting progress on my shots on this blog.
It was an awesome time and I hope to see all of my AM buddies soon in a big studio working next to me and we still keep helping each other out

Take care everyone

Class 6 - Week 10

Hey there,

here my upload for week 10. I am not uploading my reel this time. I changed a few things on the renderings and the composting. I want to show it to you guys when The term is over. What I can show you now is a rough layout pass for my next shot. There is no acting going on, so just the contacts for the walks. I hope my Mentor has some good tips for the layout and than I try to get more into blocking the next week.
Hope you like it, and happy animating

Class 6 - Week 9

Hey guys,

here my upload for the week. I changed a few things on the Sanity Clause shot. I also worked on the rendering. Stay tuned for the final reel when AM is over ;)
I put all the shots together for my reel and will see what my Mentor thinks about the order and if I should cut a shot from the reel.
I also started to plan a new shot which is kind of hard to plan for me right now. I'll try to get a layout up for next week.
Happy animating and until next time

Class 6 - Week 6

Hello there,
week 6 is over... half way through! This is going way to fast. I don't really know how to catch up with all the work ;)
I started to spline my shot and splined my way through the first 200 frames. Next week the last 100 frames will be turned into spline. Than I will start to add some lip sync and more detail to the hands, fingers and face.
Besides working on the shot I updated my website and my show reel. The website can be found here and the new reel on my vimeo page. I will keep updating the reel when the next shot is done.
Have an awesome week and happy animating

Take Care, Matt
