AnimFX 2009 was fun.

Just came back from windy Wellington after attending the Animation Development Master Class hosted by Sander Schwartz and Rita Street at AnimFX 2009. The landing into Wellington was pretty interesting, with the strong northerly wind it felt like a roller caster and my stomach was in my throat half the time but the Air New Zealand pilots got us there in one piece so two thumbs up to them.

Hearing Sander and Rita was amazing, they were funny and were happy to share their experience and knowledge. Which is just wonderful to see their passion for animation. Incidentally I have discovered I've been approaching animation development and pitching the wrong way. So I'll be taking a different approach to that side of things now and hopefully achieve some better results than my previous attempts.

We also had the opportunity to see the first episode of Fanboy and Chum Chum. I've been following the development for this on Frederator for a while now so it's really go to see it come together as a final product. I really hope it comes down here on New Zealand tv. Fingers crossed.

Thanks Siobhan, I'll recommend it to anybody.

Unfortunately I couldn't attend all the events but I'll definitely be back next time!
