I have to be honest; I am so utterly charmed by the idea of leap day.
We always complain about how we don’t have enough time, how years go by so quickly. Well, 2012 is at least one day longer than 2011, 2010, and 2009. You get a full extra day. 24 hours. 1440 minutes. 86,400 seconds. There’s so much living you can do with that time.

Description: Such a motivational final project piece done by a student at the Ringling College of Art and Design. A lot of respect goes out to the artist behind this production for the utilization of a unique hand drawn art style combined with 3D art assets in a story that was composed and composited perfectly. The almost ironic uplifting background music fits perfectly with the music and adds to the emotional element of the piece.
Special Note: The bar has been set high in the world of animation and visual effects. I have lots to learn in order to show the world what I am truly capable of. This is the last post for my summer Concept Design class at Drexel University taught by the excellent Professor Troy Finamore. However, I will be posting back on here every once and a while to keep my creative journal alive and kicking. This is no happy ending, rather this is a project that will last as long as I am young and continue to be in the pursuit of creative inspiration. My grandfather once said, “You only become old the moment you stop learning.” This is a journey and this is just the beginning.
