cameronsanati said: Hey Jeff! How do you balance your passion for music with your job at SU? The reason I am asking is that I am currently studying animation and I fear that once I enter the business, I won't have time for my other passion. Thanks for the response :D
Thanks for the question! This is a big concern of mine as well.
I’ve actually found it pretty easy to play music in my free time outside of work. After drawing all day, it’s nice to be able to pick up my guitar and put my energy into something creative that isn’t drawing-related. I mostly improvise nowadays rather than learning or writing songs. It’s really relaxing to kind of turn off my brain and mess around. It’s also really helped me improve my playing ability! (check out these links to hear some of my improv stuff)
I’m actually super lucky to have a job where I can use my music skills in addition to doing storyboards. Music is a huge part of Steven Universe and Rebecca and the rest of the crew are really open to anyone who wants to write something for the show. I would say that opportunities like these are unusual and rare, but I actually had multiple chances to make music for projects at my previous job (I was an animator at JibJab.) I guess that’s only two jobs where I’ve gotten to make music but HEY that’s pretty cool right?!
It’s a challenge to find the time in addition to my full time job, but music is certainly a huge part of my life still. I’m still learning and improving and having fun. YOU CAN DO IT TOO!
