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.
