It’s been a long month. With all its hardships, I feel that I have opened up my eyes to new possibilities. Although it is fine that I have made mistakes, I feel that I am stronger and better than ever before. Although their might be not a lot of successful turns and developments within this year, one thing that I acknowledge that this year is providing is a sense of determination and the persistence to keep going no matter what.
It is somehow necessary for me to be part of this journey, to live these moments somehow they are pushing me to become stronger, better and most importantly acknowledging the power that I have in me. The only value that I retain is that of myself and this is a beauty that I have long forgotten about myself.
My creative pulse is alive and it will stay alive until the day mother nature takes me back into her loving hands.
Some of the things that kept me going were the fact that I accepted the time and the given moments at hand. Trying to reduce the problems and the amount of stress I gave up on seeing too much into my life and responded to just being within the present.
Away from comfort, I shall start this journey! Today was the day where I finally started planning out my year, my new chapter and my new ambitious self! All in the power to do good and be good, I have developed a well-structured timetable where I can retrain my body, my mental capabilities, and my inner peace.
Although I have scheduled something that is simple, I feel that having a simple and clear objective will provide a clear and stable conscious of the way I want to work in the coming months. Together with this I have evaluated and sought to extract the dream goal to which I want all of this to unfold on, and with the sheer commitment, I will hard to redevelop my portfolio and focus on attaining this position.
Through Learning, Hard work, Graditute, and Self Empowerment I will reach the next level of excellence.
Stay Focused and Positive Micheliners!

This week has been a pretty crazy week, but I have built some momentum that I don’t want to loose. I’m starting soon my fish model and hopefully get cracking quickly with modelling, re-topology and developing the proper UVs for my animation.
This is a video that I came across two days ago and it really made me think of how much hard work and truly believing in yourself can actually make you become. This is all that I have been talking about, but I strongly believe that good vibes and positive attitude build up can truly enhance and develop ones internal core to become a better practitioner in this industry.
Keep your head high. Stay authentic to yourself and don’t stop.
Today it was a huge struggle, I found myself in some dilemma and keeping my threshold high can at times, be a trigger for me to actually feel annoyed and at times upset.
Some things that I should keep in mind to move forward, is that all things that are new can be a huge struggle at first, and Rome was not built in a day, but through small steps I can achieve big heights.
To this I will keep you with a small thought for today. I came from nothing and wherever I’m going I don’t know, the challenge that I have in front of me is something that I have to conquer to move forward for my dream.
Off to challenge myself one more time.

‘You are what you do’
Today is the third day of my production work, and its a long way to go.
I’ve been trying to keep this updated but its hard. Yet, I want to try to revive this platform and share more of my ideas and content. Sometimes I find it hard to get my head around to what I should develop all of this into, but somehow I will never succeed if I will postpone everyday for a better day. So to this I should try to maintain and equilibrium and become more fluid and fluent within the content that I post.
I’ve been still recording my days and somehow I want to share this with you guys. These images although they might seem quilted with some sort of tension, they have been the get away and instance of my constantly busy days, where I took a slide and a moment for myself. Me time. Absorbed by the work, and constant battle of developing creative things I find it hard to make a constant self persistence of myself. I will try.
Here is a sneak pick to the development of my thesis. The narrative as I explained before is about a guy nicknamed Brice, who takes himself into a journey in understanding his purpose and relevance within his quiet and voided world.
Initial design developments that I have undergone, through my post production development.
The concept art that I am eagerly developing. I hope this gives you an idea of what all of this is about and how I will develop and generate my content in.
I will be working on models in the coming week and as well I will kick off with my initial 2d animation development, hopefully keeping you updated more often. I will look forward for this, but for now salute!
Life is a zoo in a jungle.

An interesting thing I came across today was this. I rekindled my thoughts about my previous work.
Looking back into this I feel reconnected with memories and days that are no longer here.
‘Some people drink from the fountain of knowledge, others just gargle’
Looking back to where it all started one should be startled to realize that we all came from one foundation. Today I came across something an artifact that has been part of my past. Although it might not connote anything for some individuals, I believe that looking back into any past, one can trace and understand the essence and presence of being this present individuality.
There is a moment in this film, where you forget that its a movie and you get mesmerized within the wonders that lie within the french caves. Away and still these images narrate something more profound than any technological advancement in this current world. Although only through film one is able to perceive this beauty, one come to terms to realize that the most profound wonders lie within the simplicity of our hearts.
To this I was drawn to look and develop something that meant and created a meaningful venture within this development. Although I clueless immersed myself into this, I started to acknowledge powerful synergies within these paintings.
Synergies that took me back to my past. Where all I saw was magnified with my own perception. The funny thing is that I still find myself that same crazy kid from the inside despite the physical growth that I have undergone.
In this way is everything we do in life has a certain permanence to its unfolding?
Is it something that can never disappear or it is bound to be forgotten to the instance we think about doing it?
Off to continue now.
Sometimes you need to step away from what you re presenting and analyse to full extent what you would like to achieve with all of this work. Through the past months I have been working and developing my skills into becoming better and more proficient in what I do.
Rediscovering techniques, reanalyzing methods of practices I started to understand how much I still have to understand within this world that I live in.
From pitching, to project management, to Python and all the chaoticness that logic brings with, diverged into compositing and animation configurations, I have given myself time to learn and digest all the greatness that knowledge and time can offer.
The missions will soon take of to a new level of grandiosity. I belief that great things will come my way.
[STAY +] MICHELINMISSION
BFX Workshop has allowed me to look within the different pipeline stages that film production takes place in. From quick Kun Fu Live Sketches under the supervision of Paul Hilton, we were able to come up with a sequence that provided a good basis for our film production. On set we were able to assist the filming team, and look into ways the production could successfully compose a good green screen for the post production session. The Masterclass moved on with some NUKE compositing done with the help of Jon Turner.
To each and every dichotomy the beauty that social media transmits, provide certain users freedom ‘to a certain extent’ and the freedom to explore different loop holes that make this interaction unique and beautiful to engage with.
As found within Howard’s Newman adventure to Amsterdam, the simple technology failure, provides us with something that is profound and deeply impact to the mundane and vernacular videos that access the linearity of abiding with the rules.
(This link has been removed from the channel ;/) It was about a grand father which recorded his journey to Amsterdam with a new go pro in the wrong direction. What you could see in the video was the random reactions and laughs he had with his wife.
In thus similar way the back Camera process has allowed me to interact within shapes and different manipulative processes upon which the linearity of the previous weeks could be further distorted and deviated from the actual truth, providing a clearer outlook towards the social reality of the whole process. In this Light different angles and light processes has been formed and worked upon.
https://beme.com/(A great APP to try out)
Another interesting APP that has been launched for Android last week is that of created by Casey Neistat a New York Film Maker. An app that removes the element of filter and edits and seeks to portray the raw moments that we live in. The only thing that you can review is the reactions that people send back, which is only seen once. To this the resolving idea of moment bears within an important part in portraying the true and authentic experience.

Collaboration for Ai WeiWei is possible within the different spaces found within the social interaction. The act of sharing an idea is one of utmost importance.
Trying to expose the reality that I find compelling within the social media, I looked within my authentic perspective and reaction to this project. At times I failed in providing a clear outlook to the dichotomy and pattern and see everyday. Nonetheless, I kept on trying.
