So... these few weeks must be celebrity week.
Today my friends Nicky and Dario and I ran into Danny DeVito at CalArts!
It was a really weird and cool experience even though it was short.
We turn the corner, and Danny DeVito is walking towards us with a few other people.
We just stared at him with wide eyes and open mouths... we just didn't know what to do.
Danny DeVito took the initiative and shook hands with all 3 of us.
He's so nice :)

Now I know that I act like a fool around celebrities that I like.... :/


Also, Jordan Gordon-Levitt will be visiting CalArts to give a lecture on acting.
I signed up for the talk and I'm really looking forward to it!

Seriously... celebrity time.

This year's CTN kicked butt!
I am extremely grateful that we have this event to bring the animation community together.
And I'm so glad to be a part of it.
I got the chance to talk to so many people today who are very talented.
All these people are sitting right there, behind their booths waiting to meet people.
I can't wait for next year :}

I brought my cat designs to show to some people at the expo.
And I got some great feedback from some of the artists who were attending.
I'm posting the designs I showed at the expo.
I have 12 cats, but I was so inspired that I'll be drawing more!

I'm going to catch some Z's now.
Because tomorrow, I'll be attending the Tangled premiere at Walt Disney Studios!!!!!

More animations and CTN!

I am posting 3 more animations that I have been working on for my 2D animation class.
As usual, all of them need some tweaking :P
Especially the backgrounds.
My animation assignments require backgrounds and different layers.
I didn't plan out it out properly at the time.
So I apologize about my first flour sac animation. It is WAY too light.
Also in my second flour sac animation, the ground disappears -____-

But now I've figured out how to put everything together properly!
So my next animation won't be all wonky.

Also, this weekend is CTN animation weekend!
I'll be going tomorrow with some friends.
I'm super excited! I'm planning on bringing a small portfolio for my first year film.
I'm hoping I can pitch my story and character designs to a few people and get feedback.
This time, I'll be brave enough to talk to people.
Not like last time....

Hope to see everyone there!
and enjoy these small animations :)

Here are some 2D animations that I have done for my class.
Both of them needed a few corrections.
But they are decent for someone who's only been animating for about 3 months I guess.

and this one is just for fun

This one is dedicated to my teacher at Otis, Keith Downey, who has taught me so much about After Effects.

He would be so proud of me and my After Effects Critter :)
