Well isn't this world a really small piece of land after all? Who would have guessed that today's guest lecturer would actually teach at The Animation Workshop?! I'm applying to an Erasmus programme at The Animation Workshop and it so happens that this amazing and talented 2D/3D/VFX artist actually teaches there as well!

I can honestly say that today's lecture was the most inspiring lecture I've had since I started this course. Being in the same room with someone so talented yet so humble as Sydney, really made me realize that no matter how bad some days might be, it's all worth it. It's all about animation :)

Please have a look at her website. Her work varies from Graphic Novels up to The Clash of Titans. Do you know she was an animator in the old (but amazing and lovely film) Iron Giant? Have a look, it's definitely worth it!

Raul Tavares
Artist | Student | Film & Animation
United Kingdom
I am passionate about perfecting the aesthetic as well as technical value of my work, so I am constantly challenging myself to take ideas to the next level and better myself in the process. Inspired by drawing characters and everything else that appeals to me, I'm aspiring to be a character artist, but also an animator and film maker.

At the moment I'm doing a (BA Hons) 3D Animation and Games Degree at Middlesex University, so with lots of hard work and time into it, I intend experience in:
-Concept art and visual development
-Character/Environment/Prop development (from modeling to final render)
-And, above all else, develop myself as an artist
I Have software experience with
-After Effects

Hi, I am Teddy. Once you read this you
cannot get out. Finish reading this
until it is done! As I said, I am
Teddy. I am 7 years old. I have no eyes
and blood all over my face. I am dead.
If you don't send this to at least 12
people I will come to your house at
midnight and I'll hide under your bed.
When you're asleep, I'll kill you.
Don't believe me?"no"
Case 1:
Patty Buckles
Got this e-mail. She doesn't believe
in chain letters. Well, Foolish Patty.
She was sleeping when her TV started
flickering on and off. Now she's not
with us anymore. Ha ha patty, Ha ha!
You don't want to be like Patty, do
Case 2:
George M. Simon
Hates chain mail, but he didn't want
to die that night. He sent it to 4
people. Not good enough George. Now,
George is in a coma, we don't know if
he'll ever wake up. Ha ha George, Ha
ha! Now, do you want to be like George?
Case 3:
Valarie Tyler
She got this letter. Another chain
letter she thought. Only had 7 people
send to. Well, That night when she was
having a shower she saw bloody Mary
in the mirror. It was the BIGGEST
fright of her life. Valarie is scarred
Case 4:
Derek Minse
This is the final case I'll tell you
about. Well, Derek was a smart person.
He sent it to 12 people. Later that
day, he found a $100.00 bill on the
ground. He was premoted to head
officer at his job and his girlfriend
yes to his purposal. Now, Katie and
him are living happily ever after.The
have 2 beautiful children.
Send this to at least 12 people or
you'll face the consequences.
0 people- You will die tonight
1-6 people- you will be injured
7-11 people- you will get the biggest
fright of your life
12 and over- you are safe and will
have good fortune
