Unexplored Territory



I had to post a short thank you to Propaganda Games for taking me under their wing for the past 3.5 years. This amazing studio in beautiful downtown Vancouver really allowed me to grow as an animator, and provided me with opportunity after opportunity to work on some amazing projects - with some pretty damn amazing people. If you ever wanted to work at a games studio that really cares about animation, and cares about the people who work there... look them up.

If you are a follower of my blog, you will know my aim for the past few years has been to step out of the games business and get a long dreamed about job in the movie industry. Right now I am getting ready to move with my family down to San Francisco, and help out at Industrial Light and Magic. I can't wait. This is the place that got me into all this animation stuff in the first place. I'm scared stiff... but really ready for the challenge.

Bye everyone at Propaganda, I'll miss you all!

Congratulation!!!
Always awesome to see someone talented fulfilling his dreams!!!

On a side note, the film or movie industry was, or still sometime is, often presented as a dream and a better place to be for animators, but IMO, it’s in fact most of the time, way less fun and creative than the video game industry animation-wise... the movie industry is true offering better salaries but I see it as the price to pay for less interesting works....

I stay convinced that the Best animators are right now in the movie industry, but would have more fun and liberty in the video game one, and would bring more to the media…
But that’s another story… :)

And congrats for thanking your previous employer that deserve your message, always cool to know when a company did well and is a good company to work at !!!

Best of luck to you and your family in SF !!!
Can’t wait to see your next works !
