Just a few weeks left of my placement, and I'm getting a feel for the work environment and the work I'm doing. In the end I was almost over-prepared for the technical aspect, but I was still under-prepared for the way actual business is conducted. I kinda wish they'd taught us a bit more about that in school. In the meantime this is the final stretch OF the final stretch, and time seems like it's slowing to a halt and I'm going nuts! I finally got my workstation although I'm learning that while interns here/art people are kinda given free reign, the employees are always being scrutinized and some of them aren't happy about the boss' attachment to Skype. If you're not replying to him quickly enough, he's blowing up your inbox, your voicemail, and anything else basically. Yikes! On the other hand I've only really spoken to him face to face 3 times in the last few weeks. Enough for basic instruction but it still feels a little weird being told simply to "go do" and find out if they like it later. I know I don't need my hand held, but it'd be nice to be able to have a more open dialogue. Then I'd feel more comfortable.

To be honest though, I'm enjoying the experience but when I reach the end, it won't be enough to keep me there. My plans are way too big to be side-tracked in this way, and I wish everyone the best. Made lots of new contacts (and some friends) and feel in love with cintiq tablets! (I don't care how they cost I'll split the bill on one with my Dad if need be, he understands how indispensable tablets can be in my line of work and will probably appreciate my reasons for the upgrade).

In terms of the student version crisis, I'm told that the files will be converted so that (somehow) won't be an issue, but I still have my doubts. I'm still stuck because I need my hours, buuuut my prof has made himself scarce (although I did get an e-mail maybe last week saying not to send him my weekly work reports anymore, because he's on vacation. I hope the other guy is at least back now, these are kinda how I get my marks and pass the course). Not counting this week I'd say there's 2 more left?

Into week 4 of the placement and thus far there haven't been too many problems, although when I spoke to another intern to see if he knows the status of the workstation that was supposed to be set up for me, he said he thinks they have something already and it's likely that the boss just forgot, and that's why he didn't say anything until now. Truthfully I was sort of hanging back to see if I didn't get a message about it, although the boss is at the E3 conference and is basically away all this week so that's 4 weeks of time and I'm getting a bit anxious about working from home since it was originally discussed as a temporary thing. Not to mention I'm really not supposed to be doing commercial work with a student version of Maya. I've been avoiding tasks where UVs haven't been done yet as best I can, although I finally got a job where that's just not avoidable and I'm stuck between my boss wanting progress updates when he gets back from E3 and getting burned by autodesk if I go ahead and introduce student files into the pipeline.

That's right folks I found one!

I was a bit bummed not being able to work for scholastic but in the meantime I'm working with a game company in Aurora on a project. I'm doing lots of textures (and maybe some mode later on), it's been fun so far although it's taken a week or so to get settled in. I'm actually working at home until the boss can set up a workstation for me, since the studio is teeny tiny and if I do work there I'd be sharing a room with another guy. I hope it's ready soon since if I'm working there I have the chance to ask questions in person and if necessary have someone show me how to do a thing :/

In the meantime I've learned a bit about mobile games and hopefully will get to see some of the work they've done with Occulus Rift (that's right, I found a company that does stuff with that! woo!)

I'm used to going and doing 3D stuff for long hours as a student so having my work timeframe limited an 8 hour day is new to me. I've done 9-5 at a graphic design placement but never have I held those hours at home, I tend to blow through breaks and lunch without even realizing it xD
