Class 2 Is DONE!!!

Class 2 of Animation Mentor is finally done!! This has been a long 12 weeks and I feel I have learned a few more things about animation and about myself. I got involved with other hobbies and plans which took time away from my studies. The scenes suffered because of that. However, I polished them up as best as I could and that is what I have submitted here.

The next term begins on June 30th and I am not sure if I will be moving on to Class 3 or not. I had a passing grade for the term but my mentor feels I would benefit from taking Class 2 again. He says I need to really nail down body mechanics before I can move on since it will only get more difficult from here on out. I can see where he is coming from, but it was still painful to hear. I don't really mind taking the class over again since Inow know what I need to work on. My main concern is that my student loan will not cover me to get into Class 6 to finish the program. I don't know what is going to happen but I will figure it out when I get there.

But for now, my Class 2 - Body Mechanics Reel:
