Hey, so, I graduated from CalArts quite a while ago, with a degree and everything, but somehow I never got around to posting my films online. Booooooo on me. I know. It's especially terrible because SO MUCH of your life in the Character Animation department at CalArts is spent on somehow, some way, producing a cartoon. All by yourself. It's an absolute miracle these things get made at all. They're hard to do!!
So today, after almost 6 years of sitting on the server at CalArts not being seen by much of anyone, I finally got this thing up on Vimeo! (I needed help from one of my students to make this happen. Learning never ends, people!)
So here it is, my fourth year film.
Captain Scratchy Beard from brigette b on Vimeo.
Yes, I made cartoons before I made books! And the girl in my cartoon is reading a book. How's that for foreshadowing.
Oh yes, by the by:
I get a lot of e-mails from folks (students, mostly) with a lot of questions about a lot of things. Mostly art things.
I'm going to try and do a master "frequently asked questions" post soon, so if there's anything, anything, ANYTHING you wanna ask, please feel free!
You can ask in the comments or e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you've already e-mailed me, please don't feel bad! I just get too many to answer individually, and lots of them are the same questions over and over, so it'll be better for everybody in the end if I can just get them all answered at once.
