Stay grounded

I tend to do most of my contract work from home or for small outfits, which is great. But once in a while I get employed by a large company which brings me up to date and reminds me how easy it is to fall behind when you work on your own. Having said that it's quite evident how much easier it is to upgrade your pipeline when you're a very small team. I'm currently working at Animal Logic, employed to animate in a bunch of final shots. These guys are super talented. Although there is a full team of programmers there working hard to update the scripts and pipeline, it would be very expensive to give the pipeline the overhual it needs. And tricky too, considering the constant workflow they have going. It's a great project and I'm learning a few things that will help in Pixelpickle projects.
