I remember being inspired by The Quarxs in the early nineties. It was one of the earliest computer animated TV series, predating ReBoot.

Sinclair ZX81, 3D Monster Maze (1981)

Not really "3D", of course, but we didn't know that at the time (and didn't care).

Cartoons and Super Nintendo games were the first thing that have I have an interest in. At the time I have been wondering how did did they make it move like that. 3D short movies and architecture have inspire me to get up and do something. There was a school that have all the resources I need do it. I enjoy modeling in Maya and 3DS Max.

And boy was this hard to find unless you remember the name or the characters!

I think I saw it in early high school. For some reason 'Tron' didn't register in my brain as 'here is something new that your might be able to learn more about in University'. But this film did. I've looked to computers for creative satisfaction ever since.

Ironic that Tron didn't register as I later did a workshop in school with one of the technology developers for that film.

I was at Disney Hollywood studios in Orlando on a senior trip in high school. I went to one of their how to draw classes where me and my friend were the only 2 above the age of 14 and below the age of 36 in the room and our drawings grabbed the attention of the instructor who talked to us after the session and he mentioned that he was going to school for 3d Animation and he planted a seed that just kept growing after high school graduation.

What really sold it for me was watching the making of Myst and realizing that the software they used could be bought and used on my family's computer.
