My name is Peter Macinkovic, I am a Digital Producer/Project Manager from Australia and formerly an aspiring animator during my teenage years.
Had another Newgrounds account under a pseudonym in which I spent a good portion of 2005 to 2009 immersed within the Newgrounds BBS, posting over 8,000 times. Obviously early on those posts were childish, completely alien to me now however I see those as my formative years in regards to my socialisation skills. Newgrounds truly was an immersive experience for me and important in shaping the man I am today.

Well on Tuesday I headed over to RMIT university for an interview in Games design. I'm pretty confident in how it went as one of the interviewer's loved my animation and they were generally interested in my ideals for the Gaming Industry. I know I did better than the guy before me as he went in without a portfolio and just ran on about games like Halo 3. I was prepared and I felt it flowed rather well and were satisfied with my ability to storyboard and interpret images and structure of narrative.
I'm planning a few animations in the horizons so look forward to that. I'm hoping to eventually plan, storyboard and animate a flash rendition of "The Little Match Girl" but right now my priority is too learn actionscript so I may learn the programming aspect of flash gaming and maybe churn out some games.
Well after staying up for more than a full day, consuming 5 cans of Red Bull, coffee, Pepsi of the MAX and normal variety and other forms of caffeine I was finally able to complete my prerequisite kit for my Animation and Games design courses for RMIT university. Twelve A4 pictures, 20 postcard storyboards (10 for each course) and a half page double spaced application thing and it is now over. I was happy with my storyboard for animation, turned out really well and I'm considering animating it after I'm done with exams so look forward to that. My second storyboard I'm not so proud of because the punchline was weak and my skills kinda dwindled due to sleep deprivation. The A4 pictures...well some I liked and some I really wish I didn't submit.
Overall it turned out well. Yesterday I handed them in to the RMIT office in the city. Nightmare to find because I unfortunately happen to be a moron that I could miss a university across the street from the train station I got off at :S
Took me an hour of walking randomly in the city but I eventually found it.
English Exam= Fin
I finished my English exam. I was quite satisfied with my performance. I aced the language analysis, wrote a pretty good speech based on the Ronald Reagan speeches I've been listening too lately and my essay were pretty good. My first essay on the film Look Both ways (it sucked but easy to write on) was really good but my essay on 1984 wasn't as good due to the question being really ambiguous not really that important to the text.
The question was:
" Nineteen Eighty-Four shows that hatred has a more powerful effect upon people's actions than love"
I felt this question was pretty stupid as I'm reminded of that scene in Donni Darko about categorizing everything into two categories.
Well my Year 12 education is finally over. As of Wednesday 24th of October 2007 my days of a high school student is finished with only the peril filled exams left to encounter. During our Graduation ceremony last Friday I'm glad to announce I actually won the Media award for being the top media student in my school, something I'm most satisfied with.
Currently I have about a week or so until my first exam, English. My exam schedule is as follows:
Friday 2nd November VCE English Exam
Friday 9th November Math Methods Exam 1 (non-calculator)
Monday 12th November Math methods Exam 2 (calculator etc)
Wednesday 14th November Physics Exam
Thursday 15th November Chemistry Exam
Monday 19th November Media Exam
I'm quite happy with my schedule as I have a whole week to study for Math's and most my exams hav adequete breaks to study with exception of Physics/Chem as they are only a day apart.
However preparation for my English exam with have to be second priority at the moment as my pre-requsite kit for my application to RMIT university is due on November 2nd. I intend to finish it before that date so that I may prepare for my English exam for optimal performance.
