Class 1 Wrapup

Class 1 is a couple weeks over now and Class 2 starts up here tomorrow. I can't wait. The break was nice but I was ready to get back to things here last week.

A few quick thoughts on Class 1? A lot of technical fundamentals of animation. It was a good thing to go through to be honest, even if the assignments did seem at times mind numbingly technical with little creative to them at all. I do have to say it got me thinking more about each of the principles and even though I put thought into poses before, I do so even more now.

Other than some technical things with the AM website (pretty minor stuff really), I really don't have any complaints about AM Class 1. Not all mentors are made equally, but that's life (I thought my mentor was great, just some other classmates with other mentors were not totally happy.) Alumni Q&A's were still some of my favorite things to do ...

Lastly, personal keys to success in Class 1 were participating in the community, posting my work as early as I could, and time management. It was all about using my time the best as I could and giving / getting feedback. Pretty simple really.

Alrighty, Class 2 starts in about 18 hours, maybe I'll post more frequently next class (doubtful, hah).
