Hjalti Hjalmarsson talks animation

Hjalti Hjalmarsson is an animator working in Iceland. The studio he works for – Midstraeti – adopted Blender as their main 3D tool a few years ago, and never looked back.

We talk extensively about the industry in general, using Blender, reminisce on some ads we worked on together, and chat a bit about his experience with Animation Mentor.

Last year, he was the Winner of 11 second club March which garnered the attention of Animation Mentor. His work has evolved into a highly nuanced style, as seen from his most recent work on his Vimeo Page which I recommend you check out.

You can follow Hjalti on twitter: @hjalti while he works on getting his official website up and running.

  • Actionscript 3.0 *is* supported in Android, but it is being used in apps through Adobe Air.  You cannot make website portfolios anymore — at least, as the current Adobe agenda has it — but it is worth keeping in mind so you can avoid learning the bulk of xcode and Android’s version of Java.

    For what it’s worth, Adobe has to relent on this Android thing, since HTML5 is just not there yet, and won’t be (probably ever).  In time, Apple will have to relent, too, as long as Adobe stays in the game.
