Hello Internet People
Helloooooo Fellow Pony Loving People of the Internet. Name's Greg, or as the internet knows me, Pinkydash or PiDash.

Currently I'm a college art student (insert unemployment joke here) with roughly two and a half years of After Effects experience under the belt. I would love to point to a channel and say "look at all these cool PMVs I made", but alas no such channel exists. I do have some visualizers I've made for musicians around the YouTube though, if you google around you may be able to find them.

Anyways I have a bit of time on my hands right now, so I figured I would drop in and say hi. If anyone's interested, I would love to try my hand at a PMV collab. That would be fun.

RE: Hello Internet People
Greetings!
Just out of curiosity, if you're fine with me asking, which school do you go to? (I have to figure out where I'm going soon Tongue)

RE: Hello Internet People
Thanks for the welcome ^^
Ohai there Poki! Your stuff is actually the reason why I found this forum thing in the first place. You're really talented at motion graphics!

I go to Humber College up in good old Canadaland. It's a pretty good school, and much more affordable than a lot of the art schools in the area.

RE: Hello Internet People
Cool to hear that, and thanks!

Also, shucks, of course I have to live in 'Murica. I'm having a tough time figuring out exactly where I can go/what exact field to go into. It seems like I can't just go to school for motion graphics and VFX...Rolleyes

RE: Hello Internet People
Yeah, a lot of programs have some motion graphics/VFX courses within them, but as far as I know there aren't any programs that just strictly teach that. Unfortunately it's just not enough in most cases.

I'm no expert on the topic, but from what I understand from my older peers, is that in order to do Motion Graphics/VFX for a living, you have to tie it with something else. I personally went with Front-End Development before switching over to Animation, but I've heard/met people who went to Film school, did a design programs, e.t.c, and are very successful.

RE: Hello Internet People
Ohai there Izeer, nice to meet you Smile

Yeah, misreading my name seems to be a thing Tongue I came up with Pinkydash back when I first joined this whole pony bandwagon thing, back when I didn't know there was another meaning to the word "shipping" . You can probably guess how that worked out.

I changed from Pinkydash to PiDash so that people would stop mistaking my accounts for romantic horses fan groups Tongue
