For the past few months working at Sparky Animations has been a really productive year as I was able to learn more about how internal workings of how an animation company in our industry is like. Initially for the first few months when I started working there, I had difficulty coping with the huge workload and short deadline given to complete the task given. However, I managed to adapt by not only working harder but to also consult with my supervisor regarding my assignments before submission and to also get feedback on how I am progressing as the months pass by.
When I was given the opportunity to work on other new projects in Sparky Animation, I would always be delighted to work on something new and fresh as I feel each project has its own unique feature that differ from each other and with each different project I took on, I gained new introspects and knowledge about 3D modelling. I am also proactive when it comes to resolving any concerns I have for the assigned tasks I was given and made sure to clarify any doubts I have to help me along by doing a better job. I am grateful to my supervisor for being patient with me and for his guidance and advise which has helped me grow these past few months of internship both individually and skillset wise. With these experiences gained, it helped me to develop and improve my ability to bring my models to life and to be more detail orientated when it comes to modelling and apply these skills to my works.
On the whole, I am really thankful for Sparky Animation giving me the opportunity to intern there for a yearlong and gain so much invaluable experience and knowledge there which in turn, developed my skillsets and made me into a better individual at my craft.
