I have been giving an amazing opportunity to teach at the Digital Animation and Visual Effects School at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida for the first quarter of 2012. Having just finished writing [digital] Modeling for Peach Pit and wrapping on FunGoPlay in NY, the timing couldn't be more perfect.

It's a killer opportunity that allows me to teach again and still be able to continue focusing on my company, Applehead factory. The next three months are going to be awesome.

I will miss the snow, but there will be no tears shed over the lack of shoveling snow :)

Swing by and say hello if your in the area!

That's true but having duplex kidneys " there both on my left side ,none on the right" kinda scuppers that idea :) and swimming is a nightmare I just go round in circles (",)

Block 1 finished up today down there (my daughter is flying in tonight for the Christmas break) but during the last few days, the students were busy setting up their web sites to display their work.

Here is her photo section:

Keep in mind the images you see there are from a student who had never cracked open a 3D program in her life until she attended DAVE. Here's a shot from her final project:

I've been teaching myself 3D since the day I got LightWave on January 8, 2007. My daughter was a better modeler than me after her second week.

(I'm still a better editor, though! :thumbsup:)

So William are you going to keep NY as your permanent address or are you moving everything back to Florida? If you don't mind me asking that is.

That's great, good luck! I wish I had the money to move and stop working, I'd love to retake a DAVE year.

So if someone says "we miss you (but our aim is improving)" you have no one else to blame for a really bad joke! :D

Man what a dream team. Imagine sitting in on Steve in the morning and William in the afternoon. That's how I describe heaven! Time to ditch the end of grad school and join The Dave School!

Congrats Students and to William as well :)
