Question 1 of 27
Describe a situation where you had an unpopular idea. What did you do to convince others that it would be successful?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
I engaged them in conversaton. I listened to their points of view so I had a better understanding of what they wer elooking for, then I explained my point of view and my thouhgts, so we could come to a compromise.
2.
I gave and took, sometimes I agreed and other times I insisted.
3.
I just decided to grin and bear it because they had more experience than me. My animation and layout leads were 3rd year students a year or so prior, and they decided to take their respective years off for personal reasons. I will fully admit that those individuals had more experience than me and I am mich better off learning from them and not them from me.
4.
Discuss our ideas, and choose the best.
5.
I will hear the person's idea because if he did not agree with me it means that he must have other ideas. So listening to him would be a good choice and if his idea is better than mine. I would gladly change to his idea.
6.
I make them believe that my idea actually worth than their idea.
7.
I had an idea for a town and a few others disagreed with how it fit into the story. I allowed them to give their own suggestions and the team compiled them into an entirely new idea.
8.
I remember while I was starting out animating I had harsh criticism on how it was structured, What I did was try and work with the other ideas the people gave me and my own ideas.
9.
I added a few poses to a scene that were not in the storyboard, and was told that they did not work with the timing. I took them out, and the timing was much snappier. Other times it worked, but not in this situation.
10.
I ask them to suggest any ideas.
11.
Try to get a solution with my coworkers, but if it is not working check with the supervisor or lead aniamtor.
12.
We are all different human beings, so it is normal to not always see eye to eye with everyone. If they did not agree we should be able to communicate like adults and find either a middle ground or if they give me a really good reason as to why my idea wasn't up to their standards and I understand then I will back down easily.
13.
1st ill try to let them know what I went to tell them if they not follow me ill leave them and work with my self.
14.
Am a team player so I will try to aviod problems.
15.
Like to think from his point of view, why the idea is not work, and if I strongly believe in my idea, I would like to have a third person involved and discuss ideas.

The most difficult situation I had to face was when an angry patron lost her work and took out her frustration on me. She created a very public debacle. I talked with her quietly about her options as she raised her voice, and offered her solutions. Though this is a customer service oriented situation, the techniques I used are applicable in any workplace. I was not afraid to stand up for myself, or apologize for inconvenience. I provided solutions, and I would have implemented them if the patron hadn't been so intent on causing a scene rather than recovering her work.
9.
The most difficult was choosing my feild then I focused on that things which I can do so I tried my best and then choosed that.

1.
Seeing a game I worked on in stores.
2.
Going back to school to upgrade skills.
3.
I am most proud of two things; the Lupus Chick video and my work on Northern Spark. The Lupus Chick video was a great example of animating for a cause. It helped raised money to send teenagers with Lupus to college, hopefully lessening the burdens of loan payment. It has reached over 1000 people on Vimeo. Northern Spark was a long term project that culminated in a night long celebration of art. Hundreds of people signed up to see our work, and hundreds more were wait listed. Even more people didn't even sign up because the line was too long. Close to dawn, around 4am, we had visitors who came back to experience it again. Thinking about how popular the art was, and how interested people were in the work I put in really makes me happy.
4.
Well I am not proud of anything but the thing I love in me is helping others.
5.
I struggled in school, but with my return, I excelled in places I thought weak. My accomplishment was a matter of going through a very important learning experience early on.

Understand people have down times that they are stuck, need help to get work done, Almost always I help them out, so they are not stressed out, or sometimes if they struggle with software, then I like to share my knowledge so they can get things done faster.
8.
In my past work, I developed the habit of greeting patrons that came in. No one else worked with did this. This enacted a change in my coworkers to be more open and friendly and willing to help those that came into the library. Similarly, when I worked at school on the team for our senior film, and when I worked on Lupus Chick, I went ahead and did whatever work needed to get done even if it wasn't delegated to me. This inspired my coworkers to finish their portion of work more efficiently. This also encouraged the directors to improve the quality of the video we were making because we know had time to implement changes that would improve the animation.
9.
I helped a begger when she was sitting in hot day and she needed food then I give her the food and water.
10.

One time I helped someone with the concept they are creating to have an understanding and grasp of it.

Question 21 of 27
How do you keep track of work so that it gets done on time?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
I set myself goals--milestones if you will--both short term and long term.
2.
In production environment it is sometime difficult to keep track of work that's why I always make sure that when I start shot I show my blocking to my supervisor asap so if there any changes in it I correct it immediately.
3.
Don't be lazy, and more hardworking.

I always work on it,I also set reminders.

Schedule my work flow, rough out the image, polish later.
8.
After I get a shot, I always budget my time. I divide the shot in smaller checkpoints and try to stick to them.
9.
I use a number of organizational tools. I have a physical assignment book that helps me keep track of things that happen on a regular basis (daily, weekly, and monthly tasks). I put these same tasks in an online calendar, such as my Outlook calendar or my Google calendar attached to my email. I am a very visual person, so writing down tasks in several places helps me remember what I need to do, and provides me several ways to check it and make sure I am using my time wisely. I also talk about my work, so that things that need to get changed have ample time to fix. This helps ensure the highest quality work I can present to a client, and helps my supervisors know what I'm working on so they are clear on how best to support me or direct me.
10.
I will work my best on that project no matter I have to work day and night.

I am very organized and my planning is well thought out.

I've proven with my work at Northern Spark that my art is compelling enough for people to invest their time in finding out more.

I am most familiar with Photoshop animation. It is a unwieldly, and unopopular animation style, but it I have found it very useful for practicing animated illustrations. It also gave me patience when working in other mediums such as with Maya. I prefer a key frame/pose by pose style, where I draw/pose the key frames first, and try to get the timing and acting right first. Then I work on arcs and so forth.

I try to be familiar with all of them. The basics dealing with movement, and the simple rules that have to do with staging and direction leading whoever is watching.
7.
Stop motion, line art, paper, cutout, 3d etc.

I stay focused by giving myself 5 minute breaks every hour. I do not listen to music besides whatever audio I am animating or compositing with. I wear headphones regardless of whether or not I am listening to something, because it helps desensitize towards outside distractions. I try not to think about how much needs to get done, but rather what I can do to get it done. I focus on utilizing my strengths, because I know this will get done in the quickest way. I try not to do anything new unless it is fairly simple to do because it will interfere with the workflow. I like to stick to my guns. If I have enough time at the end, that's where I would utilize a new skill to improve the work since I have time to practice it and implement it.

Its the work. I'm not sure how to explain, but when I am focused, I don't realize it and more work gets done than I anticipate.

I worked on a team to develop a interactive art and theater display for the Northern Spark festival in Minneapolis. The end result was a huge "library" made from wood and cardboard designed by artists with input from librarians. I as on the art team to create the look and feel of the display. One of the artists bailed on a project, so it was up to me to develop it and get it ready in about one week. However, rather than focusing on what had happened, I focused on how to make it happen; and as quickly as possible. The end result was a beautiful display that the actors used to reference the story they were portraying. Because it was out front, it was one of the first things visitors saw. It alone was enough to convince visitors to experience our work.

I have worked on my Skecthing on which I have to draw a face of girl.
