      Hello Animated Buzz!

      Hello!

       

      My name is Kurtis andI have been working on the animation side of the video game industry for over ten years.  I earned a B.S. in computer science from The Art Institute of California - Orange County, with a focus on media arts and animation in 2003.  I've been lucky enough to work on beautifully detailed pre-rendered movies and epic

      I currently work at Blizzard Entertainment and I've been lucky enough to work on beautifully detailed pre-rendered movies and epic fast-paced video games over these years and it's my goal for my website to hopefully inspire and give a deeper insight into this art medium called: "animation".

      The Broken Tangent

      My hope is that this website will become an animation labyrinth filled with professional and personal works.  Along with general articles about the industry and behind the scenes write ups and videos about the animation process.  In the future, I plan to add a podcast to this as well.  Here's to hoping!  

      Stay tuned and thank you for visiting!

      Thank you, David!

        Sure, I guess it would kind of depend on what aspect of the game industry are you trying to get into?  Animation?  If so, I would say this:

       

      - Stay hungry and continue to learn

      - Compare yourself to other artists in the industry now; this will help you cut out weaker pieces in your demo reel

      - Demo reel catering; if you're aiming for Blizzard, make your demo with art/animation Blizzard does stylistically.  Same goes for Riot, Valve, etc. 

       

      Hope this points you in the right direction.  Any more questions feel me to hit me up!
