Goodbye WordPress

Hello everyone, it had been a while since I write a blog entry here. I’m about to graduate as a character animator and with it have done my career in animation. This adventure part of my life had started long ago in June 2015 when I did my diploma in animation. Now in 2018 and about to graduate completing my bachelor in animation, I feel like all this is just a new beginning rather than ending.

I had my ups and downs like anyone else during all this period of time, I had meet incredible people. Some had even graduate before, or just recient, some still studying like me, for not much longer, others even were just at the beginning. In either occasion, I’m glad that I had the opportunity of meeting these amazing people.

I know I had also surpass so many challenges, that had help me improvement and develop new and old skills and abilities that would help in the future. Now, when I in this ending part, I had thought and decided a few things. One of the decisions that I had made is that I would stop posting in WordPress for personal reasons. I’m keeping my other social media but as well, had decided a few ‘rules’ to say so.

I’m keeping my tumblr, and facebook to publish WIPs while final products will be on my DeviantArt, as well as my ArtStation. I had also create a portfolio as well as a LinkedIn account. I want to remind you as well about my Sketchfab where I have all my 3D models so far – pieces used in different projects as part of my studies. Then don’t forget about my YouTube channel where all my showreels are published. As well, the other YouTube channel where everything for the “Indiana Jones Adventures” project come to live. And finally, there are my Pinterest and G+ accounts that you can also follow if you want.

After saying all that, I’m finally saying “goodbye” WordPress, it was a pleasure publishing here as well. I’m leaving it as an archive blog, I’m not closing it just leaving it. You should be able to keep seeing all my blogs post as part of my studies but you won’t see anything new. Now, you know, where to find me and my new progress in this adventure that I call life as animator. Thank you very much whom follow me here, hope to see you around. It was a pleasure and I won’t forget.

CIU 211 – CIU211.2 Interdisciplinary creative project

CIU211.2  Interdisciplinary Creative Project - Final deliverables_Poster Animation - Lizzet Arias Rhor.png
Animation side of the project.

The idea behind this interactive poster concept is to create a collage of the different subcultures that exist within games and animation. My project partner (Lizzet) and I felt that people either tend to overlook or were unaware of how diverse the subcultures were that existed within these two areas.

As such, we wanted to create a poster that helped showcase this. The idea was that the viewer would be able to move their mouse cursor over one of the images, which would then have a highlighted box around it. Clicking upon the image would then lead the viewer to a fact-sheet that had some facts regarding the subculture.

I had work with Narisa MacLeod for this project and this is the result of it. I’m sharing what she had already shared to avoid an exact copy from her. Basically this project help us to understand more about subcultures within our disciplines that are games designer and animation.

CIU211.1   Dialectical Inquiry

By Lizzet Arias Rhor

Globalization and Intercultural Perspectives

But first,

What’s globalization?

Globalization is the trend of increasing interaction between people on a worldwide scale. Due to advances in transportation and communication technology, nominally beginning with the steamship and the telegraph in the early to mid-1800s.

With increased interactions between nation-states and individuals came the growth of international trade, ideas, and culture.
Primarily an economic process of integration that has social and cultural aspects.
With the rise of the Internet, the world has become a smorgasbord of cultures.

There is a link between culture and development. This is especially when development is seen more broadly. This link between culture and development could be seen from the point of view that culture can serve as ultimate catalyst or even hindrance for development.

And then,

What’s Intercultural Perspectives?

Intercultural describes communities in which there is a deep understanding and respect for all cultures. Intercultural communication focuses on the mutual exchange.
Intercultural competence is a range of cognitive, affective, and behavioral skills that lead to communicate effectively and appropriately with people of other cultures.

The addition of “inter-“to “cultural” signals the shift to a second-order logical type. Whatever it is called – intercultural or cross-cultural competence or adaptation – this type of phenomenon exists on a meta-level to culture. Intercultural operations assume that one’s own and other cultures have been defined and described, and that the attention is now on how to analyze and manage relations among them.

Intercultural describes communities in which there is a deep understanding and respect for all cultures. Intercultural communication focuses on the mutual exchange of ideas and cultural norms and the development of deep relationships. In an intercultural society, no one is left unchanged because everyone learns from one another and grows together.

Appropriate intercultural communication includes behaviors that suit the expectations of a specific culture, the characteristics of the situation, and the level of the relationship between the parties involved in the situation.

As you can see the word ‘culture’ is repeated in both definitions, and that made me wonder, then,

What’s a culture?

One sense of culture as an attribute of the individual has been the degree to which they have cultivated a particular level of sophistication in the arts, sciences, education, or manners.
A “culture” is the set of customs, traditions, and values of a society or community, such as an ethnic group or nation.
Culture is the set of knowledge acquired over time.

In the humanities, one sense of culture as an attribute of the individual has been the degree to which they have cultivated a particular level of sophistication in the arts, sciences, education, or manners. The level of cultural sophistication has also sometimes been seen to distinguish civilizations from less complex societies.

Mass culture refers to the mass-produced and mass mediated forms of consumer culture that emerged in the 20th century.

Sometimes “culture” is also used to describe specific practices within a subgroup of a society, a subculture (e.g. “bro culture”), or a counterculture. Within cultural anthropology, the ideology and analytical stance of cultural relativism holds that cultures cannot easily be objectively ranked or evaluated because any evaluation is necessarily situated within the value system of a given culture.

Then in,

Conclusion

It’s necessary to understand what’s a culture to know a better the definition of intercultural perspective to finally have a better image of globalization. Globalization is not just connections or getting closed via communications systems in the worldwide. It is also approached intercultural. It’s know and understand others cultures to be able to be unite. It should be the link between culture and development for all of us.

Major Project- “Indiana Jones Adventures”

2018
2018 banner – It had been so long since I do one of these.

At the end of last year, in the last term I started working my major project. In the beginning it didn’t have an actual name, now it’s known as “Indiana Jones Adventures”. During last year, I did all the pre-production for it. Now I have been working on the production of this one. The project consist in create a title sequence of a “reboot” TV series for kids and adults in a cartoon style.

So far the project haven’t need a blog entry, most of my WIPs have been posted on my DeviantArt or on my New YouTube channel exclusive for it. I have also posted the advance so far on my Tumblr blog, as an alternative of social media that made it easy to share it with others. As well of course, in my Facebook page for the same reason as Tumblr.

This is solo project, I had to created all the assets and edited existing audio to made the animation so far. I’m planning in getting help for the audio, if I managed that, then the audio won’t be weak. So far the project had had its ups and downs, but I had managed to pass through those. I had learned much about animation, specially 2D animation that was my weak point. I’m using a “new” technique – for me at least- named “puppet” animation and using after effects as the main program for it. I also using what its call “pre-comps” to help me do it easier than I expected.

To see more about it, please check my other social medias previous mentioned and thank you for your support. Feel free to follow me in any of those other social medias as well.

2017-Semester 3

Semester 3
Every new semester/term I start showing something like this. We are almost half through one, the last one for this year. In this term I’m not in the need of blogging every week (not that I had). This semester I should be focusing on my major project AKA CIU212. So, the next blogs entries should be relate with it. On the other hand, I’m doing CIU211, and that also requires some blogging. My next blog entries should variate between those units.

That’s all for now, soon enough, I probably will sharing some character or backgrounds rough designs for my project; as well some research for my assessments that need those.

From last Semester

Hello everyone, it had been awhile since my last entry. I kept working and updating some of my projects even after I presented the showreel in the exhibition for that semester. Now I’ll share what I had forgot share from last term. Including the result of the new specialization project.
