This is the background for my final project in animation tutorial. This was my third class in animation and it meant doing a lot of new things for the first time. This project was my first attempt at pantomime and dialogue and I can tell I have a long way to go. Maybe some day I'll post the actual animation. I had to hit the ground running in this class, and things didn't fully start clicking for me until the last couple weeks of class, but I think I was able to keep up.
It was hard not to be inspired by this teacher. He demanded a lot, which in turn makes me demand a lot from myself. He won't be returning to teach at CCA next semester, but I'm hoping he'll relent and return sooner rather than later to whip future animation students into shape. He teaches more than just animation, and always gives great direction.
