And for those of you who don’t know:
I have a job. The week after I graduated. Working in the field I want (visual effects). I’m doing Render I/O (and miscellaneous tech support/database) work on Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. It’s cool, but posting anything about it online would be a Bad Career Move.
Basic details of the gig: I bus to work, about 2 hours each way. Get up at 5:30 AM, get home anywhere from 7:30 to 10 PM. They’re having us come in weekends now, as it’s getting to be the end of our work on the movie, crunch time and all that. I think I’m supposed to be done with my gig here in a couple weeks. It’s pretty rough, but I like it overall.
While I’m not really doing any art stuff here, several of the artists have really liked my work and want to forward me along to their friends, so hopefully something will come of that. I’m also trying to work on a couple of my own projects, but we’ll see how that goes. Not much time in my schedule anymore.
P.S. The picture linked to with “my work” is a composite of around 20 pictures, culled from all over the web. I have painted in highlights and shadows to make everything a bit more continuous, and some of the mountain ranges are painted in. The plan is to project it onto some simple 3D geometry and have the camera boom down, as a 3D train (coolish tones) runs to the town, spewing smoke. Pretty neat, eh?
