Thread: A Word from The Loser.

  1. #1

    A Word from The Loser.

    As one of the 4 and only animations ( or was it three) that was submitted from the WIP thread when the bell rang, I seem to be the only one that not only didn't get placed but was not even included in any way on the reel.

    ONE could say nothing but that would be rather too polite. Hey?

    From one looser to another, I was hoping for a split second of show reel time myself! I think everyone who entered should have gotten some recognition for their work.

    Get over it, the rule of thumb when entering competitions of any type in every sphere of artistic endeavor is to see it for what it's not.

    Cheers buddy. It's all good. I liked what you are doing. Proves it ain't easy!

    All the time I spent writing posts I could have been helping you with the Angela! Sorry. Now I am feeling a little guilt, but a comrade was in need, you know the drill...

    But it is back to work. Nudge me! Don't wither away man.

    Thanks people for writing & sympathy!

    Don't really know why I was bothered. It suddenly became one of those times when you put yourself on the point and ask -Am I just going to say nothing? The answer is usually yes but not always, and its never clear.

    I too "lost" big-time . Not one but two quick animations entered, neither one make the cut. I quoted lost because I personally don't view it as such, but rather as a chance to critique my work and improve it.

    That every entry should be in the showreel?

    I disagree.

    You will never see a bellow-broadcast-quality example featured on any other 3D App's main website, and for good reason (not referring to your entries personally, just in general).

    Sometimes the community feeling here on the forums means people take things too personally. The recognition was expressed here.

    Watch the Olympics. Watch how they train and enter many, many competitions.
    Do the same for any craft and you, too, can be a winner.

    wasn't the contest created in order to build some showpieces for LW? If you didn't win don't be sour, just work on your quality. The people watching the LW demo reel are going to be skeptics, and if something on it doesn't look good they are going to say "this is what LW can do? I'll pass!"

    You'd be a little disaffected too if you spent 4 yrs training for a career, only to find out that your degree is worth as about as much as a cup of coffee in the marketplace.
    Imagine the students with degree majors in things like psychology...only to find out AFTER the fact that there is NO demand for graduates with Bachelors Degrees in Physcology.

    Universitie's are just like car lots...if you go in uninformed (not knowing what the job market requires in your chosen field), you're very likely going to come away being ripped off...no matter how well you applied yourself. But what's worse is...you'll find yourself having the debt load of a few cars, with nothing but a fancy piece of paper to show for it. At least, if you get ripped off at the dealership you have an automobile to drive. Get screwed by your local Uni, and you can't even afford to step foot on a car lot!
    Somehow, the word "disaffected" isn't sufficiently discriptive.

    The major problem at many state colleges is that too much time and finances is spent on "General Education" and non-career specific courses. That is the REAL ripoff. If you are trying to prepare for your given job market, screw all the "diverse education" giberish...it needs to be at least 80% career specific. Anything less is theft...
