Where are you? I know you’re out there.
I’m an artist and an animator. I’ve had some problems with RSI and familial tremor that have forced me to drastically overhaul my workflow.
Twice in the past week I’ve had industry friends mention rumors of a man who animates with pedals. One friend thought he’d worked at Tippet studio. Another friend thought ILM.
Now granted, these could be two different people; and most certainly he’s not the only person who offloads keys strokes onto pedal devices. But both times, and in separate conversations, this man was brought up almost reverentially - like a blind swordsman. “When I worked at Oddworld there were rumors of a man who animates… without hands.”
I have a hunch these two conversations were referring to the same person. So I’m tossing this out into the ether and hoping to make contact.
Very generally I’d like to discuss workflow and the hardware involved - and if anyone on this thread has input it would certainly be appreciated - as there are a lot of options out there. Hearing good information straight from the horse’s mouth would be very beneficial. Not to mention save me a ton of time and money in trial and error.
I hope this message finds you enlightened one.
