On my last post I shared about a short film I worked on called Maid To Haunt. Now the lecture I made it for has been released and is available to the public....…

Here's a teaser video:

If you want to know my thoughts on lighting for animation, then this is my official brain-dump on the subject. So glad this is finally done and out in the wide wide world.

  • Listening to: nature
  • Reading: art books
  • Watching: the trees grow
  • Playing: a lot
  • Eating: probably too much
  • Drinking: a lot of water

Hi! I've been working in the Animation industry for 17 years, most recently as a Lighting Artist at Pixar Animation Studios. But I love concept design and painting as much as I love lighting. Some of my work here was done for various other clients during a few years I spent as a freelance artist (clients such as Disney, LEGO, Ubisoft, Sony, and loads of smaller studios and companies). Right now I'm in the middle of a year sabbatical to refocus my career. Good things are yet to come.

I couldn't make it to the Pixar Pipeline OR the painting workshop. I came 3 hours early to the workshop and I STILL couldn't get in. I was really disappointed. :( Do you know if Full Sail recorded the session, by chance? I'm sorry, me and my friends really tried to make it! I was really looking forward to it. We are watching your CG panel stream online as we speak, though! Maybe we can try to catch you one last time at the meet and greet tomorrow. :)

Yikes! I had no idea how popular that talk was going to be nor how small the room was going to be. So sorry you had to wait and still didn't get in. I hope you were one of the people I did get to talk with at the meet and greet. What a crazy week it was. Let me know if there's any other questions you might have.

That's okay! Sadly, I wasn't able to attend that, either. But it was awesome that you came back to school again. It's probably been a while for you since you had, so we appreciate your time! Thank you, and I hope to get the chance to meet you someday in the near future!

Yes, maybe we can meet next year if I'm able to again attend the event if you haven't already graduated. Until then, keep creating and dreaming big.

Hey there, Jeremy! I see you're going to be present in a few Hall of Fame events at Full Sail (if you're the same Jeremy they're talking about)! I'm especially excited for your Digital Painting and Color Workshop.

By the way, the workshop is like a follow-along tutorial of your painting process, right? I wasn't sure if by workshop, they meant we'd follow along with you, or just listen to your process. 

I hope I'll be able to attend, either way!

Hi! Yes, this is the right Jeremy. I will be showing my paint process and have everyone follow along. I'm looking forward to it. If you do get to come introduce yourself and tell me you were the one on DA. See you then!

That's awesome! I'm really excited to use Photoshop again. It hasn't really been my focus since I started school because as we move closer to graduation, I've really been trying to improve my animation skill (It's the discipline I'm going for). So I'm glad you and Full Sail are making this workshop possible and I will try my best to attend. :) 

Thanks again!

You remain one of my favourite background artists Jeremy. I'm shocked that Pixar didn't fight to keep you. I would have!
jermilex Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2015  Professional Filmographer
Really? Wow, thanks for the high compliment. Pixar didn't care about my painting skills and would not let me join the art department. Oh well.

You where not HIRED as an artist? ... I'm shocked. What did they hire you as? (If you don't mind me asking?)
