Out of the cold, into the Blizzard

Today marks the start of my last week here at Frostburn Studios.

I’ve had to sit on this news for quite a while now for various reasons, but I’m extremely excited to be able to finally reveal that I have accepted an incredible opportunity to be a part of the Blizzard Cinematics team as a Cinematics TD!

It’s been an interesting 2015 for me; I’m glad to have been able to work with the team here at Frostburn Studios in areas that I’d never have imagined I’d be working on in my career, and really stretching myself to understand the entirety of what goes into full-stack development a little better, along with gaining a ton more knowledge about how to actually do that sort of work. Getting to work with external partners and getting exposure to different APIs outside the context of a pure content creation-driven environment was an entirely new experience for me, and it has definitely shaped how I approach my own work. And of course, working on pipeline tools always brings its own unique challenges with it, for no two artists (myself included) will ever request the same set of features from a given tool.

However, I’ve reached the ceiling of what I’m able to both learn and accomplish here, and it’s time for me to move on.

And yes, I am aware that this will be the third time in a row my career is going to be related to ice and snow.

  1. … this is going to be awkward but whatever. Hi~~~~
    so I was reading an article on pbs which featured one of your photo, i followed it to your flickr, and then here. just want to say your work is amazing and working for blizzard is infinitely cool! 加油! (and the fox in never alone is adorable~~)

    ..and now comes the weird part…I was tracking you b/c i wanted to ask the artist’s name of the painting in your photo. back home we had two painting im pretty sure by the same artist and for 1000 years i can’t remember her name, i just know my mom loves her….. >_<

    1. Wow, that’s quite a path you found me by; thanks for the comments! To answer your question, I’m not sure either. That painting is in my family’s house, and has been for a long time now; I think we originally got it from a flea market or similar. Not much help, I’m afraid.
