Dear Andrew Kepple,
Congratulations! You have completed all your required units towards your National Certificate in Character Animation Foundation Skills (Level 2) and your National Certificate in Character Animation Inbetweening (Level 3).
You will find enclosed your Feelance Animation School Academic Record...
Qualification: Freelance Diploma in Character Animation
All of the credits are ticked as being achieved by me... But it says it's not complete!
And so a great cloud of doubt and confusion descended upon myself and my classmates as we looked at our results and wondered why nobody had got a "Yes" for "Complete". As it turned out, this was merely a typo that was on everybody's reports regardless of their completion (or incompletion) of the course. So I passed, BUT I mean, come on... of all the typoes that could be made, did it REALLY have to be such a significant one? I bet it was a prank!
All administrational hijinks aside, I now have official NZQA Qualifcations in Animation to add to my other list of animational achievements, I didn't screw up, and so my uprootment from Christchurch to Auckland has paid off. Everything's coming up Milhouse! \o/
And now let us "do the cabbage patch" (see cruddy animation, above left), which seems to be my signature piece in my animations now because I've used it in four. See if you can identify which four they are.
