Any team out there willing to let me lend a hand?

I hold an MFA in Film and TV, but I'm still at an early phase of my CG training. I'm learning Maya, and can currently model, rig, texture, light, animate... well, any part of the process, really, just not with a tremendous degree of skill! I'm most interested in animation, but I'm willing to try just about anything to help out.

My background in film would come in handy with planning the initial sequence as well. I can help script a scene and suggest shot design approaches. I may be able to contribute some live-action footage, but my access to decent HD equipment is limited.

Finally, I don't know if this counts as a positive, but the Robot Jox poster is currently hanging on my wall, and I wouldn't turn down a thumbs-up fist bump. :)

Hey there,

I'm an Animation Designer (BA) specializing in VFX, I would be happy to be part of a team for this challenge.

Skills: Particles & Simulations, Tracking, Compositing, Lightning

Software: 3ds Max (AB, FumeFX, PFlow, Rayfire), Softimage, After Effects, Nuke, Boujou, PFTrack

My main interest would be creating particles and simulations (blowing stuff up) or compositing and post.

In the forseeable future I'm available every day for as long as it takes.

PS: I'm aware I don't show any work here in the forum, but I'm confident I can handle the challenge.
