Anthony Chin: Digital Artist
My work in digital art began with a hobby and a Star Wars fanfilm taken much too seriously. After countless hours of compositing, sound editing, and rotoscoping, I found a desire to pursue the digital arts. My endeavors have led me to much more advanced technology, equipment, and techniques thanks to the diverse talent I've encountered along the way.
My studies in digital art introduced me to a larger world of study in interactive multimedia including 2D animation, 3D animation, programming, and web development. Work in these areas has led me to discover that I find enjoyment in problem solving. Despite the medium, I find excitement in the challenge of reaching my goal with what's available. I see it as I would a puzzle or brain teaser. I've described programming as solving a puzzle with words on a screen. Some find enjoyment in solving a puzzle while I do the same with a computer program or a video that needs editing. It's a chance to learn more, which is never a bad thing.
My experiences cause my work to contain a wide variety of subjects. My works show dealings of self, philosophical ideals, untold stories, relationships between people, and work for no other purpose than a desire to work. This is partially the result of my own diversity. I work because I think it's fun, I feel passionate about it, and/or it's something I feel my audience should see. Doing what I love has shown me much about myself and added to my understanding of life.
