I just got back from the BDA Awards, and I’m really impressed by the winners in all the categories. Congrats again to SCAD’s Matt Smithson and Will Campbell for earning awards in the student category. Many other schools (*cough* Otis *cough cough*) did really well, too.
And now for the confession: After pumping fists and slinging drinks with all these people over the last few days, I’m starting to feel like a real poseur. It’s kind of embarrassing that Motionographer is getting so much attention despite the fact that my motion graphics skills are nearly non-existent. This whole thing has really motivated me to create some kick-ass work over the next couple quarters. I’ve always been upfront about my lack of experience and my role as a cheerleader, but now I’m ready to join in the game and get dirty.
I’ll be posting a feature story soon about my experience at BDA that will hopefully shine some light on the event for those who’ve never attended. It’s a pretty damn crazy conference for a pretty damn crazy industry.
