There was a time in my life when I wanted to bring more right-brain thinking into my career. The division between technical and creative work always seemed somehow artificial and pervasive. Like some unexpected obstacle in the road. A Monty Python bridge of death where you are stopped and forced to choose. Creative or technical. Design or implementation.
Once you make the choice, you live with it. There’s no going back. Not without significant personal cost. No crossing the streams.
After starting as a contractor in September 2007, DigitalFish took me on as a full time employee three months later. The contribution I’m most proud of is adding a pose mode to Reflex.
Working on the inside of a killer animation tool is a blast. The guys at DF aren’t afraid of throwing out a big lasso to wrangle in epic amounts of internal complexity so that animator side of the tool “just works” in amazing, intuitive ways. Accomplishing this with flexibility and real-time performance is not easy.
The next leg of my adventure is underway! I’ve accepted a contract position at DigitalFish. The expertise and focus they’re applying to character animation is incredible. Needless to say, I’m quite excited!
I’m on a mission to find the most inspirational and exciting 2d/3d animation software around. Currently the brilliant minds at DigitalFish are making my toes tingle with Reflex.
