Today on Boing Boing tv, we explore the work of award-winning, self-taught animator Tyson Ibele, who is based in New Zealand. In this episode, the 21-year-old artist explains that he taught himself animation during high school using
free software freeware. He says:
I was originally introduced to 3d animation by a great
freeware program call Anim8or
way back in 2000. Soon after, I discovered a program called 3d Studio
Max and I have been working with it up to this point. I now work for a
company called MAKE.
So, I have several years experience with 3d Studio Max,
and am familiar with everything from modelling to texturing to animation.
Tyson offers advice for would-be animators among the BBtv audience.

“Gets stuff done,” is a good way to be described by anybody. Especially by coworkers or bosses. Because whether you’re in finance or a children’s librarian, stuff needs to get done. But how do you make sure stuff gets done? You definitely can’t do all the stuff yourself, unless your company/organization/government office consists entirely of you. And […]
Even the most expensive pair of hi-fi headphones can’t match the feeling of bass rumbling through your body at a live show. That’s why music aficionados designed The Basslet, an accessory that reproduces that sensation from your wrist. Does it make your whole body shake with deep subs? Not really, because that would be terrifying, but […]
