Pom Pom (2002) – Short film

I made this short film in 2001-2002, it was a good opportunity for me to learn modeling, rigging, texturing, lighting etc. I was also experimenting a lot of things in animation. Pom Pom is getting old, but was an important step in my career at the time.

  1. Hi Laurent!
    I’m a grade nine student and I recently decided I would like to pursue a career in 3D animation. I did some research and I can see it’s not all just fun and games, but I’m still interested. Not to brag, but I’ve always had a talent for art (drawing specifically) and that is key for being a good animator. I can see you worked on How to Train Your Dragon and you are currently working on the sequel. HTTYD is my favourite animated movie! Anyway, I was wondering how exactly you got up to Dreamworks. What kinds of things did you do in animation courses? How long did it take you to get from the first day of animation school to a job at Dreamworks?
    I know you’re probably busy but it would mean a lot to me if you could answer some of my questions. Merci messieur, et j’espère que tu répond à mes questions. (I’m in French immersion.) Thanks again for taking the time 🙂
