It was my dream as a little girl to be an animator. I’ve always loved to draw and I’ve been into computers for as long as I can remember which is why I majored in Computer Science with an Art Emphasis in college. I played with all kinds of media, water color, oil and sketches and on the tech side, I learned programming and Photoshop. Some of my college friends had a copy of Maya which is a super cool software package that’s MEGA expensive. I tried to dabble in it but failed and gave up. Then on my most recent Press day at Disney Animation Studios, they gave me a lesson and let me play with Wreck-It Ralph’s body.
So by using Maya, I made him dance. They showed me that with a few shortcut keys I can move different parts of his body in different directions. Clicking brought up some nodes and then I could pick and make slight changes and then I got to watch my work. I LOVED IT. Check out my Ralph dancing:
We did spend the day learning about other things, like digital download that comes with movies. It’s super easy with your DisneyMovieRewards account. If you don’t have one. GET ONE. We also had the opportunity to see the transitions of Ralph. I think I showed you guys that in an older post, but had to bring it up because some of the deleted scenes (and transitions of Ralph) are expected to be on the Blu-ray DVD Combo Pack of Wreck-It Ralph.
It’s with great anticipation that I’m awaiting the Blu-ray DVD Combo Pack of Wreck-It Ralph to come out so I can relive all those sugar filled moments.
