Exceeded Bandwidth for AM Reel

Well..looks like I exceeded my bandwidth limit and so my reel will be down until April 19. Please check back then. See, I made an awesome welcome video for the new CLass 1 folks and left it on all their pages. Well that killed my bandwidth limit. Ouch!

First QA of Term 2 | Peer Buddy

our mentor, Pete Paquette, in his treehouse office

We had our first QA with Pete last night and it was AWESOME. The first QA is generally just an introduction of everyone in the class. Looks like I'm amongst some great company of students from various backgrounds. While Pete is pretty down to earth, he informed us he'll be quite the task master [could it be is former stint in The Marines????], but will learn a ton about animation through that "tough love"!

In other news, I'll also be helping out Term 1 students in the official capacity of an Animation Mentor PEER BUDDY. As a peer buddy, I'm responsible for providing feedback and encouragement to seven students assigned to me as well as keeping the community of AM alive and kicking with all students. This is both a great way to give back to the school along with making sure I really cemented what I learned last term.

My New Mentor

We started season 2 at Animation Mentor this week and I've got a brand spanking new mentor for this term. His name is Pete Paquette and he's an animator at Blue Sky studios. He's worked on such films as "Robots", "Ice Age The Meltdown" and the new "Horton Hears A Who".

We've got our first QA with him this evening. I'll let you know how it goes!!
