Wow,Wow,Wowieee!! What a whirlwind it has been so far! The project I've been slaving over for a couple of years is nearing the final stretch with the launching of Origanimals on ZooMoo Asia starting tomorrow at 9:05am,1pm,5pm and 9pm respectively. It's been a tough learning curve for me since joining Giggle Garage first as a character designer,which quickly lead to some unexpected surprises over the short span of 3 years. To sum it up, I've graduated from being a character designer before being thrown in as an asst. director which then lead to becoming a Story Director on that same project...and now am co-Directing a new project on another animated series called The Kazoops with Cheeky Little Media based in Sydney. A couple of other projects have also been launched simultaneously this year,some ads on one side...and then another series on the other...and hankering to get my animation short off the ground. Like I said, it's been a whirlwind and I feel my body is getting accustomed to working the double shifts every week not counting the additional chores and jobs I've set up for myself over the weekends,like picking up a couple of foreign languages during my spare time, giving private art lessons,working on my graphic novels & prepping for another Art Gallery installation taking place middle of this year. I think I'm setting myself up to be killed softly but I suppose this will only help to build character and stamina along the journey. Felt that my coping mechanisms are a whole lot better than when I was starting out earlier in my career. Certainly,I've picked up a lot of knowledge and know-how that could only come from hands-on experience. I think now would be an opportune moment to thank my boss,ED & my mentor,Naz for believing and trusting in me enough to throw me into the Lion's mouth to either sink or swim while in the process of learning the ropes while on the job with such a demanding and grinding pipeline.
All I can say is that,Thank God for blessing my life thus far and for enabling me to cope and work out the daily demands this year has brought on so far.
I'm still alive and have christened this year to be "Make-Myself-Happy 2016" which I fully intend to see through.
Hope everyone's been doing fine out there. I'm sorry I haven't been able to respond back to everyone in a timely fashion. But just want you to know that I do try to read everyone's notes,just sorry am not able to reply back to everyone regularly as I'd like. I will try to update and keep a journal going if anyone ever spends their precious time reading my rambles.
Cheers to a enlightening and 'WottAnAmazing' year it's been so far. Take cares,folks!
