A Tale of Blogging, Classes, & Demo Reels

11:04 AM Posted by Rebecca Forth

Okay, I'm new to blogging and such so this may be downright horrible. But I figured that it would boost my networking options and such, so here it goes!

First off, my name is Rebecca Forth and I am currently a 3rd year student at the University of Colorado at Denver. I plan to graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis on Digital Animation. I am still learning animation techniques and fields, but have found that my strength seems to lie in Lighting and Texturing (which pretty much come hand in hand).

Currently I am attempting to get an internship for this summer at an animation studio. I'm applying to Pixar, Walt Disney, Blue Sky, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network! My first deadline, for Pixar is this Sunday and I am somewhat rushing to finish it up!

Here's some of the work I am submitting in my demo reel:

I made and rendered this image in Autodesk Maya 2008 using Mental Ray. As of right now I'm compositing in some render passes for a higher quality image.
