So, recently, I volunteered to help out a group with their 2nd year film, a little 90-second thing called "Hopes and Screams" about monsters trying to achieve in a human world. It's cute and funny, and slightly gross, and I'll probably send a link your way when it's done.
But yeh, they needed some first years to help them speed up the process by doing some colouring on their finished line animation. It should've been a quick job, really, but because there was a lack of understanding of the way the line tool works, combined with the line art being spread across 10 different layers (which makes sense from an animation perspective as it allows you to isolate different elements of the action and work them out without risking messing up parts that are already done), basically meant that the half-hour job instead took probably closer to 6 hours.

But still! I got it done! And that's the important thing. My name'll be in the credits, so that's a plus-one to the list of animation experience that I have.
