Today I attended the London International Animation Festival at the University of East London
Barry Purves showed us some of his own work and a lot about puppets and the ideas behind animation, very inspiring. Luc Chamberland dissected the workings of the laser scene in the Goldfinger James Bond movie along with a lot about the workings of storyboard and layout... and why things are how they are. Robert Bradbrook gave an enlightening talk about storytelling, much to digest.
After this we had a lengthy session of animated short films. The best of which was the last Pombo Loves You by Directed by Steve Warne which had me leave in tears!
Now I have a 24" monitor on my laptop I find that the £5 keyboard is really not up to it. Hence the Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard. Very nice. I have started my degree in Creative and Professional Wiring this year and think I have a lot of typing ahead, hence the keyboard. It was only once I got this I realised how hard I had to hit the keys on the old one, as first of all with this one it hurt I was hitting them so hard. Pretty much sorted on the computer front now. I bought Dell hoping for longevity from this item. I don't like to buy new stuff all the time from an environmental standpoint.
