Happy 10th Birthday, Blit!
I'm not sure of the exact date, but I'm pretty sure that I finished my first animation test of Blit Wizbok (who would late go on to appear in Alien Song) in November of 1998. I don't give Blit a lot of thought any more, but I have him to thank for getting me in the door at Pixar. Blit was modeled and animation in Animation: Master, which I loved using, but I haven't had a chance to touch it (or Blit) in years.
So I've been doing character animation for about 10 years now; looking back at this first clip, I'm happy to say I've learned a few things in that time!
