Animation students blog their productions
Hello there! Today I’m writing to encourage everyone here at the Art Center to check out some of the blogs written and maintained by students here at the school. All students in the 2D II animation class are being encouraged to (regularly!) update blogs about any animations, drawings, self-promotion, anything they are producing this term.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to say that anyone nearing graduation should really consider keeping a blog of their work. Blogs are the new business cards, or at least the new leave-behind self-promotion. A blog can serve as an up-to-the-minute portfolio, that allows potential employers or collaborators to get to know your artwork and style. Take a look at what the students and instructor Max Cannon are creating for some great reference.
Last term was when I first heard about what the senior animation students were doing with their blogs, and it inspired me to start one of my own. It’s really easy to do, and it doesn’t take long to post. The 15 minutes you’ll spend on maintaining your blog a few times a week will be well worth it when you start networking or looking for a job in your feild.
