Some random great resources/links ..

First a great repository for movie screenplays. Hundreds of shooting scripts from major movies listed alphabetically.
A brilliant resource to see what was actually on the page vs how a director interprets it onscreen.

This next link has been around a while but I find myself coming back to it a lot as a tool in the design/look dev stage any project I'm on. It's an Adobe website that aids in designing colour themes / palettes.

By far my favourite defocus/Depth of field tool for many post tools - Lenscare, by Frischluft is a plugin available for after effects, nuke, fusion and composite.

And last but not least, a new online animation school much along the lines of AnimationMentor that I stumbled upon...
http://www.animschool.com/ has some nice tutorial videos to sample such as this maya eye blink tut..

That's all for now.

Ok this is not exactly animation related but I definitely think putting this much thought and design into a CV will REALLY help any graduating students chances of employment in what is a very visual industry. Take a look at some of these beautiful and imaginative CV layouts..
