Hello, folks. My name's Roger and I have been working as a 3D modeler and animator in the entertainment industry for the past sixteen years.
Prior to that, I was a stage actor. I studied Theatre at UCLA, where I performed in productions and won several playwriting awards. I later studied Musical Theatre at San Diego State University, and lyric-writing at the BMI Lehman Engal Musical Theatre Writing Workshop. In all, I have performed in over thirty productions and musicals.
I have always aspired to write musicals when I was younger, but never felt like I had enough life experience to put into my work. Now, I am interested in collaborating with composers on individual songs and one-act musicals (to start).
I have several thought-out ideas for musicals. I also have several finished song lyrics.
I am very open to helping others with their ideas, as well.
Do you ever post any animated shorts online? If you do, please post some links. I would love to see your work.
I have a background in fine and graphic art, and have been fooling around with a few modeling programs for iPad. What Mac-based, affordable software do you recommend for a beginner self-learning computer animation?
