Sharpening Up The Toolkit. Build Ya Skillz! *Explicit Lyrics

Happy Friday! Today is the first day of the rest of my career. This song is one of my go-tos when I need that inspiration to get back in the race and get over the next hurdle.

Currently, the hurdle is motion graphics, or “mograph” for short. I had the opportunity to pursue it back when I was at art school, but passed up the chance. I didn’t have the money to get a powerful PC back then and felt like  wouldn’t be able to keep up. With the price of PCs dropping considerably over the years, the barrier of entry has become cheaper, but the bar for quality work has been set pretty high.

Unfortunately the art school I attended back in the day is closed… And a school like Full Sail is a bit out of my budget. So I am going to turn to resources like School of Motion and my local public access television station to get my foundational training.

I will keep the posts coming with fresh new work and thoughts on how I progress. Classes at School of Motion start in a couple of weeks. I haven’t registered yet, but if I miss this session I will most certainly sign up for the next!

The plan is to build my skills and find the next opportunity. If you have had any experience with School of Motion, please drop me a line. I’d love to hear about your experience.
