Cool Great News!

I got some very great news guys. Had a phone interview with ILM yesterday and they want me there for a face-to-face interview!

Since Habib Zargarpour left to EA Games, ILM has been lacking a dynamics and particle expert. They've seen my Stormy Ocean animation and they think I could fill the void Habib left behind.

The phone interview was very pleasant and encouraging. We talked for almost 30 mins. Can't wait to get the plane tickets

Wohoo!

Good things comes to those who work hard and few people work harder than you. I do so hope you get it because you earn it.
