Animation Podcast

Posted by emac3326 on September 7, 2006

Carlos sends in an excellent example of how someone like you guys — creatives, animators, game designers, whatever — are using new media tools to spread awareness about themselves, their art and craft, the industries they work in. This is something that we can do, too.

Burny Mattinson who has worked at Disney talks about his experiencies
as an animator and producer.

Great tool for class!

Carlos’ Blog TBA.

Posted by emac3326 on August 31, 2006

Carlos set up his blog here, and wonders aloud:

I’m still not sure what I would like to write about. As you mentioned
last class, I’m one of those people that are more ‘graphic’
oriented…

Here are some ideas that came up to my mind:

1. Sketch Blog: I could draw a sketch/gesture (on a daily basis) and
write something about it or make up a short story. It will help in
polish my creativity.

2. Soccer Blog: I play soccer very often so I could write about my
experiences (Not so sure on this one)

3. Work Blog: Experiencies at work (altough it could become quite boring)

4. Personal and professional life experiences (I have too many to talk
about, althoug I rather keep them to myself, some of them could be
quite embarassing or disturbing)

I kind of like the first option. Remember the Gaping Void site I showed? The blog does not have to communicate to the outside world, per se. You can use the blog to collect what I call the breadcrumbs of life — the sketches, ideas, stuff you collect and want to remember or have handy at a later time.

Lex & Terry Podcast

Posted by emac3326 on August 31, 2006

Carlos Moreno sends a link for a podcast from a local station, 102.1 The Edge.

People call to the show and try to get advice about real situations
from this two guys, sometimes crude and/or rude but most of the times
funny.

I am curious. Do you listen to this show because you don’t have time to listen to it when it’s on air?

Personal Synopsis: Moreno

Posted by emac3326 on August 23, 2006

Carolos Moreno

Who are you?

My name is Carlos Moreno and I was born in Mexico City. I work as a
Web/Graphic Designer for Al Dia, a Spanish language daily published by
The Dallas Morning News.

What are your personal interests? Studies? Goals?

My interests include: Drawing, painting, animation, cartooning, soccer,
music and video games.  Some of the things I enjoy the most are drawing,
since I’ve been doing this since I was a little kid. I have an educational
background in Multimedia and Computer Arts and here I am again as an
ATEC student, hopping to get a career in 3D Animation in the near future.

What’s your experience with new media?

Working in a professional environment for the last 3 years, has given me
the opportunity to get closer and more familiar with many of the new
technologies and resources that exist and that can be applied to online
news such as RSS feeds, Video and most recently Weblogs. I’ve always
believed that learning now a day is never enough, specially with all
the technology changing constantly, I’ve learned the importance of
keeping up with new technologies and developments.

How technically savvy are you?

I’m pretty proficient with the most common graphic and web design tools out
there as they are part of my daily activities at work.
