Upon reviewing my Google Analytics page a few days ago, I noticed how few visits my blog has received recently. After pondering possible solutions to this, I decided the best plan of action was to get off my back side and update it!
So here I am, artwork-less but with some news at least...I have a job! Yes, sound the fanfare and stop the press, I am, for the first time in my life, employed in a job that I actually enjoy. As any of you regular readers will know, I had two interviews recently for a camera operator and film editor job here in Manchester for a company called Cut 'n' Copy. Well I'm happy to say that they went well and I was offered the job on Friday. The only downside was that my first day at work was to be Saturday. However I mustn't complain because I enjoyed every minute of it. Without going into all the fine details of it (since it is in no way animation related), I was filming a wedding.
I must say that I am very excited indeed about this job as;
a) my boss may read this
b) I see it as the first stepping-stone (career-wise) to getting to my dream animation job.
Yes, I know it's still a long way from drawing, but it will teach me a lot of skills that will be useful to me as an animator. It is also significant for me due to me having achieved my change of career path from one of science to one of art. I shall now celebrate by altering my profile description!
