Just really discombobulated. Yeah, I seem to have been neglecting my DA for the past few weeks. This always happens when I have deadlines, and right now I've got 'em really bad. Two major projects due at around exactly the same time, so I have clients yelling at me left and right and life is becoming perpetually frantic. I think
things should settle down to relatively normal around the beginning of July or so...
AND on top of deadlines this past week I've been off playing at the Pixar Master Class.
Which was totally awesome.
We had the top knobs from the Animation, Story, and Art departments at Pixar giving us a giant info dump for three full days - Andrew Gordon, Matthew Luhn, and Ricky Nierva. And while they talked they showed examples and clips and a few random classic cartoons on a big movie screen (they had the class in a movie theater, very appropriate.) And they threw random in-class assignments at us just to keep us on our toes, that was fun.
(Oh, and I totally wanna see Monsters University now, they were showing us all kinds of MU process stuff in class, and damn it looks amazing…)
(I also want to re-watch Up now.) (And Ratatouille, I can't believe I've never watched that one.)
Aaaaand... I guess I should go write some really stupidly late replies to comments and things (whoops.) (Sorry I've been so bad about that lately.) (I like getting comments, I just wish I was more prompt about replying, argh...)
