So Disney announced they have no plans in the immediate future for making 2D animated films, which leads me to officially announce something a few of you already know. In light of recent events like the PS4 announcement and seeing what the game Destiny by Bungie is doing (Disney shunning 2D had nothing to do with this decision as I made it like a month ago, but this further endorses my mood shift), Ive had a change of heart when it comes to what Id like to do with my future. If you asked me a while ago what my dream job would be, I would have said "An animator at Warner Bros animation!", but that just isn't true anymore.
Ive decided that I would like to learn CG and continue my career in the Game Industry, and to one day work on a game that all of you would pre order for a console system. Ive worked in the Game Industry for a few years now (WMS Gaming and Lightside Games, yeah they aren't for consoles, but they are still Games and thus are definitely considered part of the Game Industry and are acknowledged as such) and I can honestly say I really enjoy animating and creating art for video games more than I enjoyed making animations. Its fast paced and ever changing, and I like that.
So yeah, just thought you all should know. Doesn't mean I'VE sworn off 2D animation, I would still like to animate fun shorts in my spare time, but Im not striving to get a career doing it anymore. Id also still like to animate in 2D for games if I could, I just figured learning CG would help me get jobs that work on Console games.
That being said,I currently want to help make a game with someone on the side. Like if anyone needs a 2D animator/artist for their game and they want to pitch their idea to me, Id be happy to think it over and help out. I use Flash CS6 mainly so if you need an artist that uses that for your game, feel free to ask me. If youd like to see my game work, check out my website at www.DaveBrunoAnimation.com. I also have some really cool ideas for games to make, but Im thinking of keeping those to myself until the right opportunity arises. I like working on cartoonier stuff, preferably non pixel art but Im willing to make exceptions if necessary. Something very simple to start out I think as I already have a full time job making a complex game for Facebook.
And there you have it! Give me an email or a PM if youre interested!
