animator vs animation

at work yesterday, i requested to go part-time for these last 3 weeks of the summer, because i feel like i don't have any time to have peace in my life. i'm always going a hundred miles an hour, and i can't hear myself think.

ironically, though, i was asked by the safety officer of our college yesterday if i could make a flash animation of putting things into a biosafety cabinet correctly. i told her that in all honesty, i'm a novice at flash and wasn't sure if i could do it. i told her, though, that i'd look into it and let her know.

i took IT's adobe flash class, but i'm not sure how much i remember. this would have been good to work on when i was working full-time (hence the irony of the timeframe).

getting back into flash, i'm pretty sure this is what's gonna happen:

(and no. i didn't make this animation.)

I love the animation and I love the Coldplay video. I was dying laughing during it. I like what's going on with you paintings too. You'll have to let me know how the flash animation works out for you. I've played with it once and it seemed fun.

p.s. Alan Becker is the creator of both of the "Animation vs Animator" 's. http://alanbecker.deviantart.com/

if that's what's going to happen, then i definitely think you should take the job.

awesome story of doing battle with a jpeg come to life aside, i hope you do get some time to enjoy the remainder of your summer before school starts off again at the end of the month.

awesome animation!

i think it's cool that you are requesting time to hear yourself think, because leisure time is important, i think.

“Leisure is a form of silence, not noiselessness. It is the silence of contemplation such as occurs when we let our minds rest on a rosebud, a child at play, a Divine mystery, or a waterfall.” -Fulton J. Sheen

Yeah, M taught me this: the only way to learn how to do this stuff is to do this stuff. I've probably learned more since he's been gone - beCAUSE he's been gone. And I've had to figure it out on my own. In fact - I love figuring it out.
