PRODUCTION PIPELINE EFFICIENCY

With over ten years of TV Animation experience I have established a workflow that has become highly efficient. I've really enjoyed my time at smaller studios, including game studios (beyond the animation industry) in helping me understand the responsibilities of all the different departments and their needs. Through years of conversations with my fellow mates, particularly the composite teams, I have been able to hone my work to keep files organized, as large as they need to be to accomplish the shot, and easily workable for paint, animation, and post production. As an educator these efficiencies are things that I bring up and talk about at length, but the reality is that even in the professional environment, this area of the discipline is often overlooked.
