I was poking around at Stay N Alive and read a very interesting idea about Follow Friday and the ways it can adapt to the new @reply changes that Twitter has set in place. Instead of flooding the tweet-stream with a bajillion usernames no one is going to care to check out, you highlight a select few people and EXPLAIN why they are interesting to you. This is a much better idea in the long run and puts the focus where it truly belongs: on the people you’re trying to get people to follow! Anypoo, with that, I bring you my good buddy @calamityensues.
Here’s the nitty-gritty, as they say. Calamityensues is an animator based out of Chicago. He graduated from Columbia College, and has kept busy doing freelance work in his field. His real passion is with storyboarding, which is evidenced by the most excellent boards I’ve seen him do for our current project. He’s quite passionate about his work and yet will be the first to tell you that the story is one of the most important ingredients in animation and film.
Here’s a demo reel of some of his more recent work, so you can see what he’s all about!
If you haven’t figured out yet why I follow calamityensues, you might very well be the most blind person I’ve ever met. Seriously, check out his stuff and follow him as soon as you can. Link to his blog: http://tommyrobot.blogspot.com/
