Sample text

In the case of Humble Lantern, I've changed the names in order to respond to the studio owner's request or privacy.  Frank got the intern position after making several calls to Humble Lantern, offering his services for free in turn for equal time with a well­equipped computer so that he could perfect his show reel.  Frank's officemate was another animator, Suzanne Drake, who had been working for Humble Lantern as a full­time freelancer for about two years.  Many people prefer to work freelance because they do not want the benefits and prefer the freedom of choosing their workplace and schedule on a day­to­day or, in Suzanne's case, a month­to­month basis.

The text describes the animation, any sound effects or music, and any dialog or narration.  Outside the studio, the animator uses the storyboard as a means of presenting his or her ideas to a client before initiating the expensive process of computer design.  Many film concepts and terminology are employed in animation software.  These attributes derive from the architectural and engineering professions.  Objects may possess a wide range of attributes, including shape, color, surface texture, luminosity (interior light source), reflectance (the amount of light that the surface bounces back into the scene), specularity (the shininess of the object), mass (the weight of the object), and resilience (the hardness of the object).

I went home and called Bosch to find out who owned an FGS 4000 in my neighborhood.  I sat down for two days and sketched out two animation storyboards, one very high­ tech and one traditional.  Generously, he offered me twice the money I quoted as the "either one" price, although I would have given him a discount if he'd asked.  I called my parents to borrow the money. " I could hear her sigh with great disappointment.  It doesn't exist anymore.  Can you imagine having to spend the equivalent of a house on your first 3­D animation computer?
