Digital Animation

Michael Maggard was born in Colorado and has always been interested in the world of 3D. This interest was born from his love of video games and the want to participate in that process. After going through high school, 3D animation was his first choice for his future. After applying to the DAC and seeing more of what 3D had to offer his resolve to be a 3D animator was strengthened.



I love to model different things. Seeing them take shape as i work is the best feeling ever. Through this program I have discovered that I love to 3D model and work with people that think the same way. In the project of Bamboo I was more of a filler for the most part, taking odd jobs that needed to be doing. I enjoyed this role but I didn't get to indulge in my passion of modeling. I hope that in the future I will have the chance to show my modeling work on big projects. As for the project as a whole, I enjoyed every second of it. It was stressful and tiring but so rewarding. Seeing it go from concept, to rough, to seeing it all play out left an immense sense of satisfaction that I do not think I could ever get from another career, and I hope that I can do this for as long as I possibly can.
