Finished up my third year of college a couple weeks ago--and man was it ten times better than last year.
I did a lot, learned a lot, was happier, and really feel like I'm finally starting to get everything together. I made a website, demo reel, resume, business cards, and a ton of animations. I still haven't finished my film from 2nd year, but I did get all the pencil animation done. Also, in contrast to last year, no pets or loved ones died, I wasn't drowning in self doubt and depression, I was predominantly diurnal (a major accomplishment for me lol), I didn't get salmonella, and I never once spilled hot soup on myself. I discovered a whole new genre of media to love and obsess over (old-timey comedies like with Buster Keaton and the Marx Brothers), I got a full scholarship for next year's tuition, I already have an idea for my thesis film, I'm really excited for my internship at Screen Novelties later this summer, and through it all my friends and family have been everlastingly wonderful and fun and supportive. I also have a brand new (to me) car baby! It's orange and shiny and its name is Rusty.
All of that sounds like a big douchey load of bragging, and I hate bragging...but all of these things are important to me and I just want to share.
*****Here are all the finished films I made or worked on this year:
YGS 60 Submission - Animated! Some Flash animations that , , and I made for the 60th episode of Jacksfilms's Your Grammar Sucks! We didn't get in...but we had impossible amounts of fun making them. (I'm the one with the stripy shirt.)
Puptato: The Potato That's Also a Dog My film for the 2013 48-Hour Film Festival at CalArts, in which you have 48 hours to make a film based on a theme drawn from a hat. This time the theme was "duck."
Feast in a Fallen City This film is by my amazing friend Aron Bothman, for which I did the stop motion animation of the little black fox.
Madeleine Mathis Animation Reel 2014 Ugh I want to change a lot of things about this now, but I'll make an updated version after I have finished clips from newer work.
Horse Feathered It seems like just a silly lame class assignment, but I'm really proud of what I was able to do with the piddly figure drawings I had to work with, the way I got myself to get into it by using a Chico song, and by subtly implying that the performances we had to sketch from were ridiculous.
Miscellany, Jr. And finally, a compilation of all the other little mini projects and animations from the year.

Lol long journal is long. I guess I just wanna stress that some years suck, and some years rock. Stick it out and every now and then your hard work will pay off and the stars will align over you. Have a good day, pet a dog, eat a chocolate~ Madelei
