Alexis Bloom Week 02 Journal
Sick as a Dog
As the title suggests, I was sick a lot this week. Unfortunately, that means that I couldn’t go to a few o the dailies meetings this week. I know it probably seems like I get sick a lot… but that’s because I do. Not going to go into details, but I do have a chronic illness that I do usually have under control, but do to switching medications and the long work hours I have each week, the symptoms are amplified like… ten fold. So between vomiting, sleeping until 7PM and feeling generally very miserable, I still managed to get the same amount of work I did last week, hitting about 43 hours. I won’t say that being sick didn’t get in the way of things, but I still managed to do what I needed to do at a level that I was happy with. I don’t know if my other group members care/understand my circumstances as well as I’d like, but I’m coping as best I can. Anyway, enough about my health issues… on to the important stuff.
I’ve focused on animating this week, but that isn’t anything new. I’ve been doing that for as long as I can remember now. Since I’m working over 40 hours a week, this feels more like a full time job than a project. I guess it’s a good thing I’m part-timing as a student this last term. Otherwise, I might crack under pressure. However, I still find that I love animating. I seem to like animation for all of the reasons that people hate it. I guess that’s a good thing… Anyway, I’ve just been chipping away at the boulder that is animating the whole short. I finished 7 shots, which is about average for the work I’ve been putting in. Most of these shots were for scene 01, and 03.
Examples: Here are the shots I did this week.
Got as much work as I done last week, and I’m on schedule for everything… not falling behind despite circumstances.
