    3D Character Techinical Director with Scripting Experience

    United States - Last active: 08/28/2014 - Tests: 1

    My name is Sarah Delano and I am a recent graduated of Savannah College of Art and Design with a B.F.A. in Animation and a minor in Character Techinical Direction. I am currently doing freelance work as I develop my reel and strengthen my work for future jobs at any kind of animation or gaming company. Through my work and references, I can show that I am a dependable, enthusiastic, and loyal worker who would be willing to do any job. I love what I do and I am eager to help others with their projects. Through my years of work, I have become proficient in multiple coding languages, such as MEL, Python, Maya API, and Bash, as well as creating rigs for multiple projects including student films. I especially enjoy working on unique, challenging rigs, such as octopi or origami, because I love problem solving and breaking apart the inner workings. Outside of my focus in rigging, I am a generalist when it comes to other forms of the animation pipeline. I have dabbled in character animation, modeling, lighting, and texturing. As a result, I have been able to create the majority of a two minute film on my own. This film went on to be included in the top films of the 2014 graduating class for SCAD this past May. Everything mentioned here and more can be found on my website at www.sarahdelano.com.

    United States - Last active: 04/15/2009 - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 2

    I've been in the tech game since 1982, starting in the fledgeling PC space and moving on to working for Fortune 500 companies building extensive data acquisition processes and reporting systems involving everything from spreadsheets to mainframe data extraction frameworks. Along the way I've picked up considerable experience with various SQL variations and a number of C-like programming languages as well as working with most of the major Unix flavors. Lately I've been doing a lot of web work, building sites, many based on WordPress and have just rolled out a new blogging platform built from the ground up by a fellow programmer and me using PHP, Zend Framework and MySQL that includes a complete testing suite and the source code of which will soon be made available on github.com. This project included a great deal of HTML and CSS and, to a lesser extent, JavaScript, all of which I was the lead on. I'm looking for projects where I can be a significant contributor in building websites, from frontend to backend, from initial concept to fleshed out process design and implementation.
