I loved animation and films ever since I was a little kid. It was different back then. Computers were mostly installed in labs and you had to be a scientist to even launch a game under DOS. That’s why I spent my time with Nintendo. Nintendo games, Disney animation (there were no Dreamworks or Pixar) and a mix of action and horror movies. If you were growing up in the 80s and 90s you probably know the taste of it.
I soon lost interest in all that though once I discovered 3ds Max. After only one month of studying it I started to experiment by making short animated films.They were crude and I wouldn’t show them now for love or money. But it got be started. Few years later I got my first full time job as a game designer on a small RPG project. By then I’d read all the books on animation in existence and several books on filmmaking. I even attended an acting school in LA for 6 months. After realizing that game design is not a fulfilling job for me, I left that job and found a new one in animation.
