A slower week, and starting a new project
I haven’t done a ton this week, seeing as I took Wednesday off to see a doctor (no uveitis here, y’all). This week, I nailed down the sequence of the quiz stinger animation with the help of De’sha, worked on photo IDs, and began a cool new project from Maddy.
Wrapping up the quiz stinger feels nice — I feel like I took way too long with it, but I refreshed what little After Effects skills I had and did something productive all the while.
Ingrid and I both had some photo ID troubles, so much that Abriella’s writing up new client communication email templates. Faculty and graduate students alike are trying to submit photos that aren’t in the same universe as our photo ID guidelines, yet are insistent on replacing their older photos (the irony here is that the older photos often do match the criteria). Thanks to carefully worded emails from both of us, the many of the questionable submitters gave us new photos to work with and upload.

I’m super excited to spend a lot of my time here this semester learning about other departments (audio, video, studio), the cool things they’re up to, and how they work!
