Class 1 Progress Reel

Here's my Progress Reel from Class 1 at Animation Mentor. Also included is my work from the Maya Springboard class, where I was first taught how to use Maya.

The reel is presented in backwards order, starting with my most recent shot and finishing with my very first work in Maya. It's funny--I cringe now when I look at my work from the Maya Springboard class. I assume I'll feel the same about my Class 1 work when I finish Class 2. I already feel that way about the pendulum, which I found to be our toughest assignment. I think it's my weakest shot. For those of you who will appreciate the reference--it is my clown on stilts. :)

It's been an intense 12 weeks. I certainly learned a lot. And though there's much room for improvement I'm happy with the progress I've made so far. Hope to do a lot better next term!

One last thing: I can't speak highly enough about the entire AM community. I feel lucky to have had such an awesome mentor and enthusiastic class. Their feedback and support have been invaluable. Looking forward to our continued journey together.
