Hey everyone, just wanted to share with all of you that I’m starting college now. I’m going to Henry Cogswell College in Everett, Washington, and I will be studying computer animation and a bit of dv “film” making.
I am very excited, obviously, and I suspect you can all look forward to seeing some nifty stuff from me a year or so down the road (I need to–and want to–go through the basics first, of course).
And for those of you who are curious, this is the same college that Soren (who also posts on these boards) is going to. In fact, we are roommates, sharing an apartment.
I have no intention of ceasing to use Blender. I will be using Softimage XSI for college (because that’s the program they have there), but for some personal projects, and especially for proof-of-concept work and animatics, I will still be using Blender quite a lot simply because of how fast it is to use. And once I get linux up and running on my computer, I may even start doing more development work on Blender (though don’t count on it, because I will be extremely busy with the rigorous schedule of this college).
Anyway, wish me luck!
