The Emmy Award-winning sportscaster and radio personality Dan Patrick partnered with Full Sail University for the Full Sail University’s Dan Patrick School of Sportscasting.
The inaugural students of that program graduated at Full Sail the same day as my program. Our commencement speaker was Dan Patrick. His speech was brimming with witty stories and knowledgeable advice. His last words to us explained how he decides who with or where to work and it resonated with me.
This is where I get to work.
That is now my mindset for this coming year and when I am seeking a place to work.
Month 1 Mastery Journal
This is my first reflection of my time at Full Sail because it goes at warp speed. Everything I have learned from month one has been built on on each consecutive class. The layering of information has been overwhelming, but at the same time it is extremely well thought out and a good way for myself to learn.
I have been anxious to get to this class because I am finally taking all the parts I have learned and animating it!!! This class has taught me how to take the principles of last months 2D animation and put them to use and start 3D animation.
This project was the bouncing ball. It is the same one we did in 2D, but now it is 3D. I used the graph editor and felt pretty confident that I achieved what was asked of this project.
This is my first pass at Smash Ball utilizing rolling, bouncing, slow in, slow out, squash, stretch and multiple objects. My initial attempt at using multiple parts of animation at once. I wish I had more time because I know I could have done more.
I spent much this ant.
I am still spending much time with this ant. I have grown fond of him. I call him Fred. Fred was giving me trouble his arms, his broken spine and his antennas were frozen.
After many surgeries, Fred, seems to be able to walk, antennas are bouncing and he has a spine. Fred will need more surgeries in the upcoming months.
This class was fun and I learned so much. The teacher also shared a ton of information for tools in my tool box.
Back to warp speed in three days.
