GOOD NEWS:

I started my internship at A Productions this week, and I reckon it's going pretty damn well so far! The project I'm working on there is eCards for Funky Pigeon - so lots of short 20-30 second animations. Their targets for me are to get one done every three working days, but considering I got two done last week (one pending review from the director) I think I'm doing pretty well.

It's going to be awesome come the 31st July, cos it's a paid internship. This is the first time I've properly worked a full time job, so this'll be my first full-fat pay check. Like god damn, I could pay my own rent off it! Hopefully I'll be able to help them get these eCards all done and have some time at the end of my internship to hop onto another project just before I go. I don't think it's likely that I'll get to do anything for television while I'm there, but it would be nice.

And on top of that, I've been buzzed for a side project - I'll get the details for it in an e-mail on Monday, but if that comes through that'll be neat. Though I may have to think about whether I take it or not, because of the bad news.

BAD NEWS:

So hidden in the fine print of Alexx's visa is the fact that she has to leave at the end of it and can't apply for another one from the UK. On top of this, the two visas she would have qualified for have been made unavailable because of the government's crackdown on immigration. So yeh, we have until the end of October before she has to leave.

This basically means a bunch of our long-term plans about the two of us going to Canada have been shunted into the short-to-medium term, and it's been a bit of a shock that we're still adjusting to. Basic plan at the moment is that she'll move out west in Canada and set up a living situation there while I'm building up my portfolio as best as possible, and then I'll get a Canadian visa and join her out there. But all this is going to take a while, and even the first part of it is months away.

We want to make the most of the time we have left in the UK together, which is why I'm hesitant to give up my evenings and weekends to do the side project.

Oh, and between A Productions and (potentially) the side project, I currently don't know what time I'll have for This is Normal.

Apologies in advance if my postings here dry up for a while. XP

Hi, I'm an animator/storyboard artist, currently at the Bristol School of Animation, who also does comics in his spare time. Anyway, you're probably already bored and have stopped reading, so here's more completely uninteresting things about me:
- I live in a house.
- I am tall.
- I have a cat called Pillz.
- That's the way, aha, aha, I like it, aha, aha
- I have a digital watch.
- YOU ARE NOW READING THIS IN A SHOUTING VOICE.
- I skipped number 6.
- You just checked to see if I had, even though I'm using dashes and not numbers.
- Several of these facts aren't actually about me.
