Lord of the Rings Online Lead Animator John Lindemuth takes readers inside his world. The world of animation for a video game. The developer diary takes a look at what it is to animate for a franchise like lord of the Rinds Online at Turbine.
|It was like winning the lottery: my boss's sister-in-law happened to be an animator at a game company on the west coast. Through her, he had heard that there was a job opening for another animator at her company, and he thought that I should apply. I scraped together a reel and got it to Sierra Entertainment as fast as I could. I was flown out for an interview 2 weeks later, and had my first game-industry job two weeks after that. Eight years later, I find myself here at Turbine as lead animator on The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar.|
