So class 2 of Mograph Mentor is in the bag, loved every minute of it and learnt a shit load from Ryan, Lucas and others in class. I was now left with a decision weather or not to go straight through and into class 3, take a School of Motion boot camp or do my own thing.
I am in no rush to go into class 3 of MM as the better I am going into it the more I will get out of it and some of the people going into it I have seen are bloody awesome Motion Designers already. This led me to consider the SOM’s boot camps. I would either have taken the character or the design one. Character animation is something that interests me a lot and my design is something that can always be improved.
I have been doing a lot of character animation and was leaning towards signing up for Character Animation Bootcamp.
Then MOHO 12 came along (formally Anime Studio). I heard lots of good things about the new updates so took advantage of a Black Friday upgrade deal.
This made CAB not as valuable to me as it focuses on After Effects.
Also, I have learnt so much over the last year that if I just apply it more to personal and client projects I will see improvements.
So, I have decided to take a semester off Mograph Mentor and revisit all of our projects with the knowledge I have now.
I will start with Designing For a Theme from class 1 and make my boards.
I will then use the boards I design for the Class 1 Visual Essay.
This will take me some time as I will be using MOHO and learning it again as I go along.
Once this is complete I will move onto the class 2 projects and do the infographics project and then the Motion Identity Pack.
This will lead to more good work in my portfolio and more shots to choose from when I make a reel so when I finish class 3 I will be in a better position to take on more clients.
MOHO 12 is bloody awesome for character animation. Get it!
