Update: Next Lecture is Nearly Complete

I'm between school quarters this week, so I've spent almost every day working non-stop on the next lecture. It looks like it's going to clock in as my longest lecture yet: over ten minutes.

After I have the audio recorded, I usually start assembling the video from beginning to end. I just passed the seven minute marker last night, so I'm pretty much in the home stretch now. If all goes according to plan, the lecture should be ready for release tomorrow!

Back to work ...

Animation: Class 3 Reel

One of the main reasons you guys don't see lectures more often is because I'm pursuing a career in animation. I'm currently studying at Animation Mentor and set to graduate this March. With some luck, I'll be working as an animator in the video game industry soon after.

Anyway, I figured I'd post my latest progress reel as proof that I'm not just sitting around playing Team Fortress 2 all day.

For some extra good news, releasing this reel marks the end of the school quarter for me, which means I now have about a week and a half to work on the next lecture. Hurray!

Some Additional Reading

In case you guys just can't get enough games-related reading, I have a couple other blogs to recommend.

Firstly is Sexy VideoGameLand, run by industry journalist Leigh Alexander. She has some great insights into our hobby and I tend to really like her perspective on things.

Secondly, one of my readers pointed out another game-related blog some of you might enjoy: Gamentropy.

I just started putting the video together yesterday, so things are moving along!
