Member Spotlight - Sébastien Dussault

on July 08, 2013

Please state your name, where you're from, if you had previous animation experience, how long you have been studying at iAnimate, and what workshops.

My name is Sebastien Dussault and I am from Quebec City, Canada. Overall, I did 5 workshops at iAnimate. I started in the feature animation workshops with the close up acting (Workshop 4) and the full body acting class (Workshop 5). After completing those workshops, I realized I was still struggling with body mechanics and also needed to improve my workflow in order to become more efficient. At the time, the Games workshops were just announced. It was a perfect fit with my ambitions to improve those specific skills so I enrolled in. I recently completed the Games curriculum and am really happy with my choice. Afterwards, I did an internship as a gameplay animator for the prototype of "Project Lune" at iAnimate. Prior to getting hired a few weeks ago, I had close to no experience in a studio environment as an animator. So all my experience basically came from my studies at iAnimate and this internship.

Team Ultimate webisode 1

Here is an internal student collaborated project with Jason Ryan as director and animator, with support from RJDM Studios. Basically Jason would take shots to animate during his live weekly demos and, as a director, review shots that students had volunteer for. It was a great collaborative process and gave a studio feel to it.
