Academy Originals – ‘Creative Spark’ Series

The Academy has released a slew of short clips profiling individuals from the film industry. Screenwriters, costume designers, composers, and musicians talk about what creativity means to them. I was surprised to learn that some of them consider procrastinating a vital part of the creative process. Even going so far as to say one should “procrastinate until you develop enough self-loathing, and then get to work.” Sounds like I’ve been doing it right all along. :)

You can watch them all on YouTube.

Press A to Start – Episode 2

Blizzard Entertainment Animator, Lana Bachynski talks with fellow Blizzard animators Denny Jovic, and Careena Higgins in Tea Time Animation‘s Press A to Start webinar.

The trio talk about what it’s like to work in the industry, transitioning from student to pro, the opportunities they’ve had so far, and a lot more. There’s a lot of valuable information in here for students looking to break into the industry as well as professionals. Common misconceptions are cleared up, which I completely agree with having now experienced what it’s like to work in games.

Look out for future episodes as Tea Time Animation is set to bring you some exciting new content in the coming year.
