For the past two months, I've spent just about every day working on the claymation for the Collegiate. Now that it is all finished, I can't help but feel accomplished that I animated something that took longer than a day. Seriously, nothing else that I have animated (and published) has taken me more than a few hours. The years of doing only stills has spoiled me as I had a finished product in sometimes as little as eight hours.
We hope to get this animation some attention during the first week of school. Every time that you make something, it's a gamble. There is always the possibility that what you have worked on isn't received well, or that simply, you didn't publicize it at the right time. When I was in-tune with Tumblr, I had a better understanding of when things would get traction. Although I highly despise Tumblr for the massive amount of porn, it's still a valuable tool that I try to remember to post to whenever I finish a clay project (especially since I have over 100,000 followers).
