Done with 3d animation presentation last last Friday, I didn't sleep the night before and was feeling very tired lately, therefore I was blur the whole time and replied irrelevantly to conversations (especially to Kezia and William, haha). Found it hard to keep a train of thoughts and it keeps veering off course and crashing into other train tracks. So, passengers (aka brain cells) were like, "Choo Choo, wtf???" However, I really really liked this presentation, because the lecturer encouraged us to give constructive criticisms. Well, it's more like at-least-2-crits-or-else-you'd-be-here-alllll-day, and whether our classmates would invest in our works.
I love to hear people's opinions and their thoughts more, because not only you get to learn something new, it gives you a knock out of your little world as well. It's not too common here to criticise someone in public. Especially when you know that they've probably spent a lot of time and effort on their work but it still doesn't come up to par. Maybe it's an asian mindset, culture or smthg? Like, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all? Directness is refreshing, and could be crucial in times like these imho. It could be quite scary and could turn hurtful, but then again, not many people outside of college would be that thoughtful to our, ahem, artist's 'sensitive souls' hahaha... *gets bricked*
Too bad that for this presentation there's not we can say other than the lighting, shadows, compositing, editing etc, and not the idea itself.
Okay, this might be a little creepy to some, but when I was watching Edmund's presentation, I was hit with this serious case of dejavu because, honest to Smoochy, I've dreamt that part of his presentation before. The hills part. No shit weh.
Edmund: im in j00r head, invading ur dreamz
My presentation went alright, but I felt kinda meh because mine was the simplest model of all (cupcake, haha. ) so I put a whee more effort on editting and music... I got a few chuckles out of mine, but william's simply win big time for its crackiness and spoofness!!! I'm not sure if it will be amusing to people who has not seen the original video, but everyone in our class were in stitches over that! So, Youtube link !
Oh, and also, Adam's awesome trailer . If you're into grungy and kinda creepy feel, dark-ish arts, you'd totally love this.
Out of all the classes this sem, I like 3D class best. I think that Irman, our lecturer, is one dedicated dude. He doesn't do all those coffee breaks, and would teach pass the allocated class time (well, mostly it's just individual progress checks), helpful, treats us as if we're already in the working world and he says 'whatnot' a lot. Okay, the last one is totally irrelevant, but i just chucked it in because it's my blog and all that jazz. It's something i noticed that's all, haha.
Next up, NKB. At first I saw him as this serious guy. Maybe it's his experience from working in the industry. Maybe it's that businessman sounding initials. Maybe it's because Ike was telling me, Kez and Seiji that this new guy is good, even Eugene don't dare touch or smthg like that. Hence, imagination commences: cowboy showdown at dawn, with Eugene and NKB at opposite sides. Wearing chaps. Don't know about you, but the scene looks pretty cute in my head XDXD.
Anyway. so with these thoughts in mind (minus the chaps), I checked my mail and I nearly sprayed my screen with Milo when his email's display name reads "kimkim". F-kun (name protected ;P) nicknamed him "kimochi~ pizza", "kimchi" and "my name is kim
He earns another plus point for being a triplet.
NKB, Pinky-Mi, and Seiji
Resemblance discovered on my birthday XDXD. It's Seiji's awesome "Mini-Me Austin Power"-style Pinky-Mi that he customised to resemble himself!! More on Pinkies in the coming posts.
For the web lect, I'll be nice and say, "No comment."
Limay and Anis's advice is worth taking heed of, so I'm rather grateful to them. Shelby wouldn't had been created if it weren't for their prompting! Who is Shelby? Erm, guess what, I'm still kinda working on it... Anyway, memorable events: Derek teasing Anis and her expression + response = priceless.
As you can see I've ran out of battery to type. And not like people are gonna read all this shit anyway, lol. Damn, got a few backlogged entries summore...
