Just thought I would let you know that since this semester is coming to an end I have been talking to a few of the animators here. I asked them if I could feature their final projects on the Cogswell’s YouTube Channel and they said “no way”….. jk, they totally said yes! So I will have three amazing animation vids for you soon! Check back later this week!

Thanks Taylor, Jimmy and Robert!

ILM on YouTube

So a friend and I were just talking about the guests from Industrial Light and Magic we having coming to the school on 24th of this month and we got onto the subject of visual effects. This isn’t surprising since our esteemed guests are wizards in visual effects, but i digress. Anyway, he was telling me how he is subscribed to ILM’s official behind the scenes channel on YouTube. This… REALLY surprised me since I love watching the behind the scenes features on DVD’s and whatnot. I had no idea that this page existed and it makes me super happy that I can now look behind the scenes of these amazing films. Thanks Davain!

I always encourage people to watch these kinds of things if they are interested in the film industry at all. If gives you tons of insight on how things work and it’s very inspirational. so here it is, go check it out!
