The cat is out…

The cat is out. Very impressive news (at least to myself)! I have been hired to teach exactly what I learned during my MFA studies, that ended at PNCA with Blender (and Krita, Audacity, KDenlive, Celtx, etc. – open source) but started at AAU with Maya (and Mudbox, ZBrush, Logic Pro, Final Cut Pro, Final Draft, etc. – proprietary software).

Teaching what I love the most, 3D design and modeling using open source and proprietary soft. at Washington State University – how to model, rig and animated assets for games and film. I do not fit in my shoes right now. What an honor!

Of course, I am also trembling since it is a new chapter and my current (7 years) experience is at public schools. It will definitely be a very different experience now.

On the Traces Project front? Well, I got my hands on two 2009 Mac Pro’s with some killer hardware that I will set as render farms. I might use it for my students, but the intention is for my film. The best part, if Mac OS is not up to date, I can go all Linux and use the ATI and the NVIDIA hardwares (two of each on each machine) with the open source I learned about and will teach my students (can I say that already??)

More to come…
