Yay, I am a celebrity!

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

To tell the truth, I admit that is a bit of an exaggeration ;) . But nonetheless yesterday I had someone from the “Potsdamer Neueste Nachrichten” (the local newspaper) coming over to my university to have Alexander Nehls and myself interviewed and photographed for an article.

The journalist has been tipped off by a friend who knew about our luck with Pixar, so she mainly wanted to know about the Studios, what it feels like to have been accepted and what it is like to work there.

WordPress

Sunday, April 6th, 2008

Alright, I just migrated completely to WordPress. It’s a really neat publishing platform that gives me the flexibility and ease in adding new content that I always wanted.

It was quite a lot of work to create my own theme with CSS and PHP that would match my old design als closely als possible, but it was definitely worth it!

My former “News” site is now a proper blog – also with the future at Pixar in mind, because I plan to write about (hopefully) interesting news more often then. Everything should be in place again except for the “Dowload” site which IĀ stillĀ have to rework.

A dream comes true!

This is actually almost too good to be true. I got a position as a Technical Director Resident at PIXAR!!

After I applied twice for this position (advertised through their online job system) I got an email a couple of weeks ago saying they will setup a phone interview with me! Whew! Of course I was very excited but in the end I think I made a pretty good first impression. And then – finally – the relieving call: I GOT THE POSITION!

Well, I can’t emphasize enough how happy I am about this and I can’t wait to start in September after I finished my diploma!

Wooooot!
