Once upon a time, there was an animator, who just graduated from college. He spent the summer at home, working on his computer, and applying for jobs. One day, he decided to pass the time by making his first video blog, like his friend Ben. Unfortunatly, doing a blog at a time of unemployment resulted in a rather depressing, yet apparently amusing video (in a sad, sad way).
I just stumbled upon a video blog on YouTube called "LUCYinLA", and it made me realize what I should have done, haha. Well, I'm not an attractive young woman, but she also does a blog right ;) She picks a story from her life, and tells it with either enthusiasm or perfect honesty. She's an aspiring actress in LA (doh, why am I in NY?), and it's good to know that there are other people in the world struggling through times of unemployement as well. There's a lot of difference between the film world and the animation/vfx world for sure, but the nature of how hard it is to find work and how some people don't understand why it is hard--is similar. Anyway, if you are an animator like me, or an actor like her, check out her vblog on youtube. Cause chances are if you are employed right now, you will be going through times of unemployement, and boy is it good to know that even people on the other side of the country are going through the same thing, at the same time.
