I'm gonna skip over the part where I talk about how it's been so long since I've posted in my journal and completely ignore the giant time gap between now and then. So, in more recent news...
I'm very happy and excited to announce that I am now officially an Animation Mentor Student! SCORE!!! For those of you that are unfamiliar with Animation Mentor, you gotta check them out. By far, the leading school for animation. I've been dreaming of attending since I was in college. www.animationmentor.com/
I've been trying to attend AM for a while now, but for one reason or another, it just wasn't the right time. Then finally, the stars aligned, I had all of the resources that I needed to attend, I applied and I was accepted! Then, I found out about Advanced Placement! So I submitted my reel to be considered for advanced placement. I honestly thought they would just start me at class 2 or class 3. But when I heard back from them, they told me that the mentors felt that I was ready for Class 4! SCORE!!!
My first official Animation Mentor term starts on the 24th of this month and I'll be in Class 4, Introduction to Acting. I absolutely can't wait for class to start! I've had access to the campus for about a month now and it's been so amazing already, I've learned loads already! I've just been watching as many videos as I can, talking to as many students and teachers as I can, and just learning as much as I can.
Hopefully, this will be another giant step forward in getting to where I want to go in life. Wish me luck! Gonna do my best to rock it out!
