Long vacation...

It has been a loooong time since I updated...awwww! I was also traveling to a few places during the winter break. In the beginning of December, I traveled to Indonesia for my friend's wedding.

It was very great experience and gave a big impact in my life. It was my first time to visit a third world country, and I was able to buy practically anything I wanted ( because everything was very cheep!) but at the same time, there were so many poor people. If you go outside, kids are on the street everywhere. Every time I saw them, it hurt my heart. Some of them would begin to dance or sing then beg for money. And here I am post holiday-feasts, complaining how I am fat and want to lose weight.

After the trip to Indonesia, I went back to Japan for three weeks, spent time with my family for Christmas and New Years. And then returned home only to fly off the next day to a new location with my fiance and his family, we went to Hawaii for vacation, and we did some wedding planning there... And I am back now! With all the jet lag, I was really tired, but now I am adjusted to this crazy weather in California.

And it was a little bit crazy before leaving to Indonesia with all the finals and internship interviews, I didn't have time to put up my final dialog test....so now here's the final result....




One more very very exciting thing! I got an internship at July Films! I went to visit their studio a month ago, and met Mike Nguyen and the artists at the studio. It was very inspiring. All the beautifully watercolored paintings are on the walls, maquettes in cases, color keys on boards, animation desks everywhere, and people were so nice. They reviewed my portfolio and reel ( I was very nervous...! ) and they accepted to have me as an intern. I am very excited and at the same time very nervous. I am starting from next week! Wish me luck!!! Also check out their website and the trailer for their film, http://www.julyfilms.com/trailer.php

Great to have you back Miyuki, you've been missed. Your animation keeps getting more and more amazing! Can't wait to see more.

Miyuki! Don't forget about me! Come back to the animation room so you can talk trash about my crappy pencil tests, and make me feel bad about myself. Congradulations on your internship, as I'm sure you'll be running the studio soon. You're a perfect fit for their style. Also, the pencil test turned out really cool. But I have to know... were you inspired to do this from hearing me and Mike talk about poop so much?

Oh Chris....
