The Blog of Julie McCartney: animation student, freelance daydreamer, and secret time detective.

Some of the most wonderful reference can be found from older films. Chaplin and Keaton were amazing at pantomime, and inspired a lot of comedic animation. Although they're acting outlandishly, it doesn't feel contrived. Watching this decades later, it still holds up, the acting and the comedy. I recommend any and all of Chaplin's and Keaton's work for a good watch and for a good study in acting.

...And so it has begun!...Kinda!

Hello all! If you've stumbled on to this blog, you are most likely enrolled in the Animation Mentor program as well! So welcome! :)

This blog will be used to log my progress through my AM. As of now I am enrolled in the Maya Beginners class.

I'm a bit anxious still, but everyone seems so nice, I don't think I have much to worry about! I feel that I've already started making friends that will be with me through my journey and after graduation. I'm very very excited! I think the relationships that are formed with people in this specific course are the most valuable thing that can be gotten from AM, besides learning animation of course! Haha!

I look forward to studying and learning with all of you who are my classmates, and to growing into amazing artists.
