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
