28 – Reach your goal and continue learning – Andrew Ford - Animator

TheSparkAndTheArt.com/28 – Andrew Ford just finished his latest professional project as a lead animator on the movie The Book Of Life. His path to being an animator on feature films was somewhat winding but always with that final goal in mind. Once he reached that goal he didn’t rest on his accomplishments. Not only does he consider each scene he animates a learning experience he continues to hone his craft by taking animation courses on his own time.

Make sure that where you are going isn’t the end but simply a new starting point.
