Back to school

Posted by Martin Vilcans on 8 April 2010

This is another one of those "long time, no see" posts. My wife and I got our second son in November. Wonderful as he is, he still requires plenty of attention. After he's asleep for the night (between 8 and 11 pm), I have taken classes in Nuke and RenderMan at fxphd.

So as you can guess, I've been busy. I haven't had the time to write more than 140 characters at a time.

But now I'm doing something very different and exciting. I'm taking time off work to go back to university and write a thesis. The subject is open source software in visual effects for motion pictures.

I'm also producing a new short film which will be more ambitious than anything I've done before. The project is in an early phase, and we haven't settled for a title yet. I will have to get back with more information later on.

So I will still be busy, obviously, but I'm planning to write here about the progress of both the thesis and the film project.

And by the way, this evening I will be holding a short presentation about Google's geocoding service at Stockholm Google Technology User Group.
