Just realized I haven't updated this in a while :)

Coming up to the two year anniversary now but I'm working as a Clerical Officer at a major hospital in Dublin booking in blood tests and providing results to GPs and consultants electronically (by confidential means) and over the phone.

Pay isn't great, but its permanent so nice to have the security. Not too bad for an Arts (post)graduate :mrgreen:

Formerly Junior Animator at Weta Digital, but unemployed now. However I do do contract work for IGN writing their wiki guides. I did the guides for the Spyro Reignited Trilogy and Astro Bot Rescue Mission, and am penned to do the CTR: Nitro-Fueled guide too (I've already written most of it based on the original game!).

I was also offered to write the guide for Jump Force, but had to decline due to scheduling issues. Kinda glad I passed on that one in the end. :lol:

That's SO COOL! Did you work on any of Peter Jackson's movies? I am a huge fan.

I didn't, no, but I saw some over-the-shoulder stuff of Mortal Engines. I worked on Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip, The BFG, a thing or two on Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, as well as working on War for the Planet of the Apes and Alita: Battle Angel.

On the latter project I had a deskmate who also liked Dragon Ball (although not to the extent I do, haha). My avatar is actually a coloured version of the drawing she did for the cover of my leaving card, which is a young me with Kid Goku. I nearly cried when I first saw it.

It was a while ago so I can't quite remember EVERYTHING, but I did a lot of crowd facial anim placement all over the film but primarily in the latter third, and especially with the child apes. Also did the show of Caesar falling down the waterfall right after his rope gets cut at the start of the movie, a close-up of those rockets being fired, and did the tank shell explosion timing in one of the wide-shots where Caesar climbs up to the Colonel's quarters during the siege.

That last one was fun because I actually looked up the model tank being used by the invading army, figured out the gun it used, and thus learnt how fast the shells were traveling. Then I was told by my lead they were too slow and needed to double their velocity. Ahh, movies!

I’m the Multimedia Developer for a local access television station in a suburb not far from Boston, MA! Essentially, my responsibilities include the development and maintenance of our station’s website (essentially, WordPress development), developing the graphics for most of the content we produce, and maintaining our social media presence. I also do a little bit of video production, including directing shows produced by the public, when I’m required to.

That was quite an enjoyable read. :mrgreen:
