Patrick Stewart on Animation

I was able to see this on Video today, and I really appreciated what Patrick Stewart had to say. I couldn't have agreed more with his thoughts.

Animation has always been an interest of mine, in every aspect of filmmaking. Drawing, music, writing, characters, direction, editing, acting. All of it. It's a huge challenge, very time consuming, and a lot of work. But it's amazing when it comes to full circle of the time spent on the projects. :)

I'll be there soon, animating, directing, writing, drawing, and acting. :) Editing too if need be (I'll leave the music to the better people lol).

It's been a full month since leaving Georgia to find a start up here in the North. A full month where I did not have a sketchbook on hand for drawing different objects. Until now:

Trying to get better at drawing females, I never seem to get it right off the bat. Anyhoo, I also got Character Animation Crash Course by Eric Goldberg, the amazing animator that overlooked famous Disney characters (Genie from Aladdin, Phil from Hercules). I'm going to push my understanding of animation while I'm up here, and learn what's it like to be an animator. I'm more of a cartoonist than anything, but I'm gonna take the chance to become an animator. :)

Motion Reel_Tres Swygert

I created a motion reel for the animation/motion design projects I've been involved with. Whether it was client based, learning, or even having fun, I want to showcase to clients, collaborators, and colleagues of what I've done so far. And yes, where it will lead into as I work towards being an animator/motion designer.

Enjoy, and let me know what you think! :)
