this will sustain me for the next 3 months

Well, I finally found the time to work on my shot for @gemanimate 2. The original shot had some pretty dramatic dialogue but visually I felt it was a little flat so I rejigged it a little to be a bit more “cinematic”. 

While I was working on this today I got given 2 weeks notice by the studio that employs me, after almost 3 years of service to them and spending thousands of my own dollars to be able to leave Canada and come back to continue working for them on a new VISA. Sounds like its because they cant find enough work to sustain my role (I cant legally work on Canadian productions on my VISA due to how the tax credits system works) Getting this animation done feels pretty bitter sweet. If anyone is looking for commissions etc I am opening myself up to try to save the money in the next few months I need in order to ship myself and all my equipment back to Australia. <3

I’ve been going through the scenes for the season previews and next week’s previews for the Rowdy 3 and I just wanted to share some observations and see if anyone had anything they’d like to add. Several of these come from conversations had with @setmeatopthepyre

It looks like they’re keeping our boys separated and either under water or in some sort of suspended state? Maybe so that they don’t have to feed as often or (and I doubt this is a stretch with Friedkin in charge) perhaps they don’t know how to keep them fed without them being loose. I can imagine they wreaked some havoc when they first got there. It does make me wonder, after over two months into captivity, how they’re being sustained. Poor guys look exhausted and worn down. 

I’m really looking forward to seeing what’s going on with them (hopefully next week?) and what this Mr Priest is doing to them. 

Does anyone else have any thoughts about it?
