So back at the beginning of 2016 I said that I wanted to get an animated short finished up. Work, life and just the idea of putting something together drained me. Luckily I have friends at work that don’t let up. (one in particular, Thanks Peter!) About two months outside of 2017 Peter came up to me and said something along the lines of “about two months left.” I was like, “ah yep” thinking that he was talking about the end of the year… turns out that’s EXACTLY what he was talking about. Then he reminded me about my New Years resolution.
Over the next few weeks, he would remind me about days ticking down. I started taking him pretty serious when he started offering up his time to help me out. Very graciously I accepted his time and his talent (he is to an animator) to help me get things finished up. The dood is a bowl full of enthusiasm when it comes to pep talks. Not normal corporate pep talks, but legit, from the heart pep talks. It was freaking amazing. To come to the finish line he helped me put together my drawings… and some of his own to get the job done. He did most of the software legwork, but it was what I needed… I needed to see his workflow. He’s dedicated to helping people out and that’s what makes him an awesome person. It’s not perfect by any means, but the idea was to finish before the end of the year. All in all it took us probably about 2.5 hours from start to finish. No more procrastination.
