Hello readers! I haven't had much to post on here over the last few days as I have been preoccupied with this job interview and the little project they set me after it. I had to model a 3D Muller Light yoghurt pot to show that I could do that kind of thing. They let me model it in Maya (my software of choice) even though I would have to use 3dsMax if I got the job. I had a go at doing it in both programs though in the hope of impressing them! Whether or not it worked, I don't know - apparently they are hoping to make a decision by the end of next week or the middle of the week after, which worries me because it sounds like there are a lot of other people being assessed too. I know these renders are nothing to do with animation but a couple of you have been wishing me luck and asking about it so I thought I'd show you what I had to do. At least I'm keeping them small (click on them for a larger version). The first two renders are from Maya and the last one is from 3dsMax. I don't know whether I'm getting overly worked up about this job. I just see it as my first step into a more creative career - the change in career direction that I have been pining for.
Now since this is an animation blog, I thought I had better put something to do with animation in this post, so here is a video I found a few days ago which is apparently from Sesame Street. It's a lovely little animation.
