And I’m already knee deep into work assignments. I continued on working for James Botey, finkbom (what is finkmbom??) director. I’m modeling aliens and creatures for game. So it has to be low poly, as efficient as it can however not using triangular faces as they’ll use it in other programs. With three creatures finished in two days and two waiting to be done, I’ve got the feedback to so far be spot on with directors intensions. After seeing them he asked to prepare models for texturing (layout UVs).
I also come very handy when coffee needs to be bought or packages taken to the post. :D Which is great to me – I don’t mind having a walk outside to break off computer screen.
A particularly interesting point today was a chat with Steve May, director of Rabits. I gave him my booklet yesterday. I’ve got some good notes from him on Ivan’s design as well as the environments featured in animation. It was a surprise for me to get the compliment. Well happy I was :D
Also I passed Phil’s regards to the producer, Inga Johnson, she in turn shared she thinks that us students are in very caring hands and Phil is definitely what a student of our field really needs.
The end of day two :]
To continue on exploring the studio, this time I present another director, Julia Pott:
Now she is a freelance illustrator and animator, currently completing an MA in Animation at the RCA, she is also part of the animation collective Treat Studios, and is signed as an animation director to Picasso Pictures.

Her work tends to explore the motivations behind human relationships, representing characters as mildly ridiculous anthropomorthic animals.
