Owning the impressive amount of 9 views or so, my first 3d animation ever, done in university for a 3 month assignment of a Cri-Cri character. I did absolutely everything (which you can state in the running credits at the end) from voice to modelling, animation, texturing, post-edition and musicalization. Done in Hash's Animation:Master 10.5
So when I get an Academy Award or stuff I can always show my first crappy animation to youngster enthusiasts and tell them: "you see? if your animation is crappy now, don't worry. The only way on, from here, is to improve"
Well I guess I'm not so much of a blogger... Last time I wrote something down here was last year? daaaaaamn
So it's 2009, I'm living la vida loca around here, everything's great! One of the cool things about this year so far is that I went to the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco in March, I'd never been before, it was awesome! I paid for the summits and tutorials pass and went with my boss of Immersion Games and the lead programmer of Mexico, we had a great time! San Francisco is a very clean and nice city...
Maybe, perhaps, except for the...
I swear, this city is nuts, lotsa people mumbling nonsense in the streets, just staring blank or screaming things one to each other.... wow, we tourists were freaked out. Although we didn't go to a lot of places since we spent the whole day in the Moscone Convention Centre, every day from Monday to Saturday we had to walk about 10 minutes from the hotel to the Centre, dodging crazy people.
Other than that, I had the opportunity to finally see the Golden Gate Bridge, hit a few bars, go to the Aquarium (which was kinda dissapointing since it was under remodelling) and walk a disastrous amount of distance each day while eating as cheap as possible because my budget was limited :P
The GDC was great, I had two full day conferences about storytelling and the mechanisms of script writing for videogames, and I spent the rest of the week just hanging around in the expo and seeing if I could win a free PSP at the Sony booth, which I didn't. I'll upload a few photos soon.
I'm a calmed, easy going and enthusiastic animator, crazy about films, japanese swords and electric guitars!
I was born in Mexico City and then moved out to Guadalajara where I currently reside. Ever since I was a kid, I LOOVED drawing, I used to draw on each oportunity I had, and my dream was to be able to see my characters move and have adventures, so I began doing animation tests with clay and drawings in the corner of the books.
Later on, I discovered a couple of nice 3d softwares, and fell in love with this technique. I studied a degree in Graphic Design with a bit of 3d animation in University, and afterwards I entered an amazing 18 months diploma at Animationmentor.com, from which I graduated in August 2008. Now I'm working as a 3d animator for a Mexican Game Development Company called Larva Game Studios
