It’s been a while since I even made an update on this website. I do, however, have many news to share.
I have been working at Arc Productions in toronto for the past 3 years, and it’s been great, however I’m sure some of you in the know have already heard about the downfall of Arc Productions putting over 500 artist out of work. The situation is unfortunate but it’s been a good experience.
Being put out of work is terrible, and no one wants it to happen to them and I am no exception. However it has been a good experience, the animation industry is a tight bound community and every studio came out to help the artist who has been displaced. It’s wonderful to see the job events and recruiting shows companies put on for us.
I myself has managed to land safely at Pixomondo Toronto, and it’s very exciting for me.
I’ve also just gotten news that Jam Filled has acquired Arc’s assets and hired back a lot of the people who used to work there.
Best of luck to all of us, and to you as well.
i made another blog! yay!! i know, i can barely maintain this one with regular updates, but hopefully these 2 blogs will give me more motivation to keep both of them updated.
anyway so this new blog is gonna be about things not related to vfx. things like games and other things that are my hobbies but aren’t related to vfx (but i might post the same post at both places if i deemed fit)
here it is, check it out, i’ll be updating that one quite regularly (i hope anyway): http://zomgethim.wordpress.com/
Edit: made the link clickable, i hate it when i have to paste the link into the browser (unless you are super security conscious), so i’m not gonna make you do that.
alright, finally gonna make another post. finishing up another project now, can’t wait to start the next one.
nothing i can show yet still 😦 but you could take a look at these few trailers, which my company had worked on, unfortunately i didn’t get a chance to work on them.
and hope everyone had a great 2010, had a good christmas holiday, and a great new year, happy new to you, hope 2011 will be even more awesome for you, and if 2010 wasn’t so great, hopefully 2011 will be better!
see you soon.

in the mean time, be cool, and stay cool.
here’s an interesting blog i found: http://3dsmaxrendering.blogspot.com/
i stumbled upon it while i was doing some searching for some rendering stuff, and i looked through it, seems like a pretty cool blog. A lot of stuff about rendering, texture/shader and stuff like that, a lot of it for mental ray, and some for vray, i haven’t looked through the entire blog yet, but seems like what he has there are quite good, not some uber long posts and stuff, just some quite practical tips, tricks and tutorials for everyone.
i’m by no means an expert at rendering, so it’s a good resource for me, maybe you’ll find it quite useful as well, have a blast.
i use twitter and my blog a lot for things that i want to share, twitter for little things, like questions and thoughts that i have and i can put to less than 140 characters. Blog as it should be is for longer posts, but most of the time i just post pictures that i have uploaded on flickr that’s worth mentioning on my blog. Still I try to squeeze in a real blog post here and there on my blog, things like news or whatever that i find worth writing a post for, like what i’m doing right now.
Anyway the title of the post says tumblr so i better get on topic and talk about tumblr. I didn’t realize until a few days ago was that i really needed something in between a blog and a twitter. Even though most of what i have to say can be posted on twitter or on my blog, but twitter is somewhat limiting due to you can’t post pictures or videos, nor can you comment on other people’s tweets(don’t tell me jaiku has commenting on tweets, i don’t really care about jaiku cause no body uses it). Sometimes i just really wish twitter has those features, but i still love twitter nonetheless.
Tumblr, which i just started using i find is very cool, it’s like twitter except for you can post videos, links, pictures. i made myself a tumblr, and i really liked the way you can use it. They have a button that you put in your browser’s bookmark bar and every time you click it you can post whatever your reading, either it be video, picture or a web page will be posted to tumblr, very handy indeed. Make your posting to tumblr much simpler process because you can just do it while you are browsing, kinda like delicious (another cool service that i use for a while and then forgot about it and then somehow i come back to using it for a while and off again).
But now we run into the problem of having too many postings on too many different services. Frankly do people really care? i mean how many people reads my stuff regularly? would people really care enough to read my tumblr? or is tumblr something like a rich media bookmark that’s for your own enjoyment so when you wanna find that cool new music video by some hot singer (if you read my tumblr you’d find it funny(great marking scheme no?)). You know what, it doesn’t really matter, because i like doing this stuff, makes me feels good, so i’m just gonna keep doing it. It might come in handy some day, you never know.
I know it’s quite a long post, and for those of you who have stuck through all the way here, i sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart that you are willing to spend the time to read what i have to say.
