Monthly Archives: November 2008

I gave a talk to USIU students a few weeks ago about the business of animation. That went well and has led to more invitations so…

I will be doing a stop motion demo at an all day seminar on the 6th of December, 2008 at Sarit Center organized by the Kenya Film Commission in conjuction with Majiqmud and Mo productions. Read more about that here.

Then on the 9th, I will be talking to Design Students at the University of Nairobi on animation, design in general, skills required by professional designers and why they are extremely lucky to be alive at this time.

The Damage(d) Report 6

No damage. But I have a story to tell. I was ready to buy two red-reads this month to work with the green screen. The lights (according to the shop attendants) cost thirty thousand a piece. I had exactly 60, 000 shillings and was about to pay for two lights when the shop owner walked in. He said that thanks to a spike in the dollar rate. He would be literally killing himself if he sold them at 60, 000. He wanted 66,000. I didn’t have it and was rather disappointed at the fact that i faced paying almost an extra hundred dollars over the eight hundred. So I left.
