7 months until graduation with my BS in media arts & animation.

The Academic Director here has worked in the industry for over 20 years, and just yesterday I was told that she would get me into Nickelodeon/Dreamworks animation studio after graduation. Looks like I'll be heading to Glendale in a few months!

Even if i botch the interview, set the place on fire, and end up getting the boot, it's STILL an awesome honor.

It's such a strange thing... knowing I got a lot of my early experience in animation right here on NG. I think my first submission on the automated portal was 2001.

Looking back, all of my stuff on here was pretty lame... but it was about the community. Artists made other artists better by learning from eachother, reaching a large audience, and taking critiques.

NG was a HUGE part of me finally deciding to go to college for animation.

I gotta give NG and everyone behind it a big THANK YOU!

NG MAKES ARTISTS.

I hope to pop by the NG office some after graduation and maybe get another "24-hour in-office collab" going like Queers of War in 2007

Don't suck the big corporate cock though.

No promises.

I WISH I could be in the story department!

I will have no control on the content of the show for a few years... I'll probably end up being in the coloring department or layout. ...then I'll stage a hostile takeover.

Tell Nickelodeon that they're terrible for cancelling "Invader Zim" because it was the highest rated show they ever had! Wait a minute, the highest rated show they ever had was "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and they did manage to show that entire series to the end. Well, I guess the two cancel each other out so just tell them they did some good and bad stuff. I think I went to Nickelodeon studios once or twice on vacation.

If you ever do get to go big as animator for them, try to sneak in very discreet references to NG in it.

Except Tom Kenny. He's one of the only good actors they have left.

Congrats. But this thread seems more like it's about your flash submissions, than your job.

But congrats, anyways.
