      Hi everyone, thought I would post here as well.

      I don’t have a major, obviously. I teach in the Media Arts and Technology department, mostly MMP or MMA courses, as well as Intro to 2D Animation. I started animating when I was in college, drawing by hand, doing stop motion, and rotoscoping.

      I love Bojack Horseman. Why? the character design, the humor, and the dark nature of the cartoon all appeal to me.

      It’s difficult for me to name a favorite animated movie,  there are so many and with so many differences in style and content. I might pick Up from Pixar, which I did particularly love. The grouchy old guy reminded me of my father, and I loved all the Doug the dog jokes.

      Hello! My name is Anna Proios. My major in BMCC is Animation and Motion Graphics. My favorite animated movie is Disney’s Animated Hunchback of Notre Dam. I basically love everything about this movie. The visuals are breathtaking, the music is great, the characters are unique, and the storyline is top-notch (in my opinion). My favorite animated tv show is Avatar: The Last Airbender. The show in my opinion is beautifully animated with such an amazing storyline. I look forward to working with you all! 🙂

      jesus M cerda

      Hello, my name is Jesus Cerda. I am from the Dominican Republic, came to the united states in 2010. I was 14 years old at that time. I have watched many animated movies, but there is one that I like, “the angry birds.” What i like about that movie is the story-line and how well each character plays their unique part. The red bird is always angry; the yellow one is super fast; a big black bird explodes; it is full of individual character. My favorite animated TV show is Hilda because the drawing style is different than others, and it provides a liking to it. The story takes you on an adventure, and the way things happen have a smooth transaction. I want to get the best out of this class as I can. My goal is to become an animator and draw comic books in my free time. I look forward to meeting new people and working with all of you!

      Meghan Ramirez

      Hello Everyone!! My name is Meghan Ramirez, I am 20 years old. My major in BMCC is Animation and Motion Graphics. My favorite animated movie is Pixar’s Inside Out (2015)  I personally connected with the story and it’s characters as the movie tackled on more deeper topics that weren’t brought up before and actually taught you a lot. My favorite animated tv show is Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir. The show is unique cause it’s the first cartoon to have it be made from complete 3d animation. With that being said, I hope I get to know you all and I’m looking forward for us to work together and improve on our animating skills.

My favorite animated movie would be “Spider-man Into the Spider-verse” because of the amazing animation that they did for the film and how how interesting the story line was. my favorite animated show would be Steven universe because of how the story has inspired me to try and create my own animated series. However, there are many other shows that I would consider my favorite because of how I’ve grown up watching them as a child and how they have drove me into becoming an animator.

      Iseosa Guobadia

      Hi. I’m Aisosa, (pronounced I-SO-SUH.) I’m a freshmen and this my third semester at BMCC. I’m an animation and motion graphics major. I plan on becoming an animator, and I might pick up cartooning on the side. In the meantime, I chat with my friends/art group. We’re working on a webcomic, and some days we’re trying to build connections with other artists.
      One of my favorite animated movies is Dumbo (1940’s version). It’s an outcast/underdog film. It starts off depressing in the first act, which makes the ending’s payoff count. I also like the music, background and songs. Vintage Disney songs, to me, sound dreamy and whimsical.
      Favorite animated show at the moment, is Kid Cosmic. It’s created by an animator, whose works I love. Compared to his previous works, this is more story-based. It has a “funnies” comic book art style, it’s reminiscent of “50s attack of space invaders” stuff. (Even the name gives off that spiffy space boy hero vibe.) What lacks in setting, makes up for in characters. The dynamics between the townsfolk, the main five, even the alien character, they’re all nice. The soundtrack is subtle, but there are some bangers hidden there. I believe the show is wholesome and dark, and one the best things to come out this year.

      Alexandra Geiser

      Hi, my name is Alex Geiser. I am a Animation and Motion Graphics major. My favorite animated movie is Fantastic Planet. The hand drawn illustrations are beautiful and the world of the film is perfectly surreal. While I also love movies in the Hayao Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli realm, I’m more interested in pursuing Fantastic Planet-style animation. My favorite animated show is Pingu. I love the stop-motion claymation. Pingu is a Swiss children’s show, but it translates across the board since it relies so heavily on the visual component and the characters speak in noises rather than a real language, which I think is pretty cool.

      SaiLungCash Jeung

      Hi, my name is SaiLungCash Jeung, you can also call me Cash. My major is Animation and Motion Graphics, this is my second semester here at BMCC My favorite animated movie is Gurren Lagann the Movie: Childhood’s End. The paintings and movements in the movie are very smooth and exquisite. In the story, we can see how the protagonist grows and see his changes.

      My favorite animated tv show is The Irregular at Magic High School. The series is set in a world with an alternate history, where magic exists and has been polished through modern technology. I like this style of background very much.

      Kaleek Grant

      Hi, my name is Kaleek. I am an animation major. My favorite animated movie is Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse because of the crossover between the various spider-related characters as well as the combination of 3D and 2D animation with a comic book style. One of my favorite animated shows is Demon Slayer. The story is pretty interesting and animation is really fluid especially during the combat scenes.
