A friend from college is an avid film maker (check out Christine Chen in the sidebar area) and she wrote a portion of her film to feature an animated stylized action sequence for me to do.
In my personal experience, animation takes ALL engines so the other art I was working on had to come to a full stop so I could focus on completing the sequence within the timeframe. I love sculpting and painting and drawing because you can work on multiple projects at once. Animating has proven to not be so considerate in that department. It can be a big fat whiney monkey on your back ESPECIALLY if you’re the only animator (I still love it though).

Animation always takes a certain harsh discipline for me. I really love doing it but as it’s the most INTENSE art I put myself through, it definitely is taxing but the feeling upon completion is such a huge weight off the shoulders.
The film is called “Funemployment” and it’s being entered in some festivals so keep your eyes peeled!
