Frozen | Shot Progression - Sven

This is a real interesting eye-opener on one Disney CG animators work process in a shot in Frozen. I love that he starts with a traditional Anim. Pass!

Thanks for all the great emails and questions about putting a portfolio together. I’ve been getting a lot of the same questions and decided it would be a better use of my time to write it all out. I’ve derived the content from from my own experience and internships before having a full-time job. As you’ll read, a portfolio is the most important thing you’ll do when applying to a job. I’ve tried to be as detailed as possible.

These are the first five pages in a series of posts about how to layout a portfolio, including content, images, size, material and everything in between. Part I is for the artist still deciding what to do for a discipline. I’ve catered the last three pages to a visual development portfolio for animation but the principles can be applied to any artistic presentation (illustration, design, even interior design).

These are my opinions and I realize there are many ideas out there which are also fantastic. What I have written are simple truths and tips I’ve learned along the way. This doesn’t represent a studio I work or will work for. I hope it is helpful and can provide some perspective into a competitive portfolio and help you land your next job!

Today has been surreal. After strike, we all went to this restaurant at the top floor of a hotel and I ended up sitting right across from Alan freaking Parsons. He was super nice and talked to me about living up here (and joked around about the ridiculous guy to girl ratio at Tech). That was definitely an evening I’m not going to forget anytime soon!

So cool!

2역 “견우와 직녀”

"8. 견우와 직녀가 많이 울어서 하늘에서 비가 많이 내려요.

9. 땅에서는 홍수가 나요. 동물들이 경우와 직녀를 도와줄 방법을 생각해요.

10. 칠월 칠일에 가마귀가 다리를 놓아서 견우와 직녀가 만나요.

11. 그래서 칠월 칠일에는 비가 안 와요.”

이 것이 1역이 “견우와 직녀”입니다. 한국어 배우는 캠프(숲속의 호수)에 내가 서예 선생님이였어서 이 작은 이야기로 마지막의 과제가 만들었어요. 우리 수업은 이 이야기가 서예로 썼고 이미지 만들었어요.

"1. 옛날 옛날 하늘에 견우와 직녀가 살았어요.

2. 견우는 소를 키워요. 직녀는 베를 짜요.

3. 어늘날 옥황상제가 견우와 직녀를 결혼 시켜 주었어요.

4. 그런데 견우하고 직녀가 매일 놀았어요.

5. 소가 배고파서 죽었어요. 그리고 베를 안 짜서 일이 많이 밀렸어요.

6. 옥황상제가 화가 나서 견우와 직녀를 떨어트렸어요. 견우는 동쪽으로 갔어요. 직녀는 서쪽으로 갔어요.

7. 견우와 직녀는 서로 너무 보고 싶어서 매일 울어요.”
