Eastwood was my first real job after college and gave me the opportunity to learn numerous tools and new skills. I was initially hired onto the project as a photorealistic PhotoShop artist, but soon took on new responsibilities including designing interface elements, prototyping functionality with Director, and sequencing "slide shows" from frame grabs. Other than the art director, I was the one artist kept onto the very end of the project, dealing with art issues up until the day of the last build.
Eastwood was a great project to work on. The responsibilities and freedom I was given to make decisions would give me the confidence needed to take on even more challenging projects and opportunities in the future.
