Threes looking good.

I'm into plugin programming but have been modelling and animating over the last few months: Seven minute 35mm. Part of VCA (Victoria College of Arts) screening at ACMI Fed Square, Dec 2 onwards.

Getting back into experimental plugin programming in the next week or so.

Hey Carl,

You might have better luck getting more people on the LwOz newslist

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/lwOz/

Are you doing the VCA course at the moment? My girlfriend had her interview there yesterday. How's the course?

Hi Fasty,

I'm not actually a student at VCA. Have been working with Luhsun Tan (who is a student) and he seems to think the course is quite good. And as far as the animation department goes I'd agree. They are very good there. And the students are all great.

Myself - I prefer RMIT.

Just had a look at the lwOz site. Thanks for that.

Anyway we're up to four in Melbourne here.

I'm currently doing character stuff, freelance.

I went to VCA in '97, made a stop motion plasticene horror comedy which went on to win Best Animation at St Kilda Film Fest in '99, much to my surprise (it was a plasticene heavy metal odyssey.)

I know another 2 freelancers who might be in.

Hey Carl,

Depending on when it's happening I'll be in.

Why do you like RMIT better can I ask? That's where I've applied.

Hey Carl,

My experience with VCA, with the students and teachers, has been very good. My preference for RMIT is simply that my own personal interests would be better served at RMIT rather than VCA. I'm interested in the history and theory of film, animation, media art, etc. - more so than the actual practice of it. From time to time I work on actual productions - and that is where I've come into contact with VCA. But for my own personal study I'm into exploring particular theorys which need not end up as an animated film - they can just as easily end up as a research paper.

Re LWUG Melbourne.

Over the last two years I've been exchanging many emails with the LScript and Plugin developer mail lists but everyone I've met is somewhere on the other side of the planet - apart from a contact in Canberra whom I've never met - and Richard Brak (in Melbourne) who I haven't met either.

I'd like to see what people are doing in animation and media art.

This just in my inbox from the DLF list, might be of interest to some local people:
(It says Max in the title, but keep reading, it is relevant to LW users...)
