I met with some people from Mind Candy (the people who made Moshi Monsters) on Friday. We were at an animation festival in Exeter (UK of course haha!). It was the first time they have ever come down to the South West to talk.
Well, the talk was amazing! The people who spoke were the lead animator and two other animators. After the talk, I caught up with them and showed them my portfolio. And then... well, they kinda wanted to pull me out of Uni to see if I could work for them LOL. I was honoured in fact! But after speaking to my parents, it would have been silly to not complete my degree when I only have a year left.
The Art Director emailed me anyways which was pretty awesome. He said that I should stay on to complete my degree, but "please come back to us once you have your degree".
I could work for Mind Candy. How awesome is that? Their studio is AMAZING, I'm not even kidding. Just check these pics out:
