I went to another workshop on the 16th, with Greg Maguire. He was very helpful and informative and made the whole experience fun and at times a little scarey... I'm still baffled by the "expressions" in Maya! It was great to see his body of work and the ins and outs behind it and what's involved in the technical side of direction for animation. We made models in the class and mine was chosen to be scans by the model scanning machine! It took and hour, but then there it was! fully formed in a max file! Unfortunately you can't work directly from that model, but never the less, it's amazing! Got some handy tips for programs and even found out you can make one of these cameras yourself with a laser pen and a web cam! I'll research that another day!
