Ken Jacobs, a legend

…had an incredibly epic week, spent time with legendary avant-garde filmmaker Ken Jacobs wrapping up a new film, then landed a part-time role of his official assistant editor/animator! I officially start on Monday and extremely honored to be working with such a legend and I’ll be spending my time this weekend researching and experimenting with my workflow (animation AE) vs. the current setup (pure edit FC). The current way they have been working is with Final Cut, but since it’s not a tool that specializes in animation, I’ll be introducing After Effects into the creative work-flow process so Ken will have more options and creative freedom for animation, image manipulation, anaglyph 3D, and much more. I’ll also be posting progress, process and my experience in working with such an inspiring film legend.
