The Arc of life

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.


Guild Wars FTW, not really.

Hey NCsoft, I sort of bought this game of yours called Guild Wars, you might have heard of it. I just got a little bit of problem with it, i can’t fking register my fking activation key which means i can’t play the game that i payed for, i bought it from futureshop, it’s like the canadian bestbuy so don’t say buy it from a better source, and it was sealed and everything was untouched and brand new.

on the plus side, or the brighter side if there is any to this unfortunate event, if you can even call it unfortunate, it shouldn’t even be happening in the first plaace, i’m paying 45 bucks for the game, get your shit straight NCsoft. Anyway they responded to may ticket saying they are “escalating your ticket for further assistance”, well, i guess it’s better than “we are sorry, but please purchase another copy of the game”.

I like the game, that’s why i bought it, i don’t like being screwed over, but you know what, the timely response makes me less mad about it, we’ll see if we can get this resolved, but then again i’ve had so many bad experiences from other companies i don’t expect them to be any better, i hope you prove me wrong NCsoft, i hope so.

right so, NCsoft’s support exceeded my expectations, it was actaully quite well. Everything was solved withint 24 hours, i had to prove that i actually own the key, and they give me a new one and applied it directly to my account in Guild Wars, quite simple really, and they did it in a timely fashion, kudos for you NC.
