Thanks Dave! Well, I am originally from Venezuela and came to the states when I was 10. And ever since I can remember I have been pursuing the illusion of life. With my bachelor's in Animation and my time at Animation Mentor, I got the job at Blue Sky Studios where I worked on Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs and upcoming Rio. I have not only had the pleasure on working with Dave, but these past two years I've also had the chance to bounce ideas and thoughts about over all appeal and how to achieve it . And like Dave, I believe that 3D animation has ways to go to reach that amazing quality that traditional 2D has, but I do think we are getting close.
We will talk about our views and ideas on 3D animation and how it can reach its maximum appeal on characters and performances. so enjoy!
