Student handbook for the ETC class that started August 28 2023.
My experience in graduate school has been quite eye opening. I have believed that life is made up of granular noise which gets filtered by our brains. But I have also come to realize that these spurts of noise can culminate into instances of magic. Such instances make everything a dichotomy of harmony and cacophony and only the human filtering can assimilate both into something productive. Of course this noise also gives me throbbing headaches so I do consider myself a confused man.
Now I make tools for animators at Infinity Ward. A lot of it is like solving puzzles so I guess the confusion is here to stay. Other than that I like scribbling doodles, listening to inexplicably heavy music and being an armchair philosopher.
My message is to work hard and rock hard. Spread brightly.
