Long time overdue post


Sorry for being invisible here for the last 5 months. I'll try not to make this a novel for you to read :)

My job in New York wrapped up in the end of March. It was such an awesome experience to work at Blue Sky Studios. I learned so much, and made so many great friends that I will really miss. I HOPE, that I get to go back there again someday. Ice Age: Dawns of the Dinosaurs will be in theatres July 4th. I had 3 shots in the last trailer for the film. Click on the picture below to see it, if you haven't already.

Hope you liked the trailer. Once the movie is released I will post my Ice Age reel so you can see what I actually did on the film. :)

My last day at Blue Sky was on a Friday, and that following Monday I flew to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for my next job. By Tuesday morning I was already animating on a new movie. Although I can't give any details about the project, its seems like it could possibly be a big movie when it comes out in 2010. I'm excited to be apart of it. The new studio I am at is called Frantic Films. The most recent movie that has come out that they have done work on is X-men Origins: Wolverine just released last weekend.

After this project is done in the end of June, I might be on the move again. Although Pixar is setting up a new studio downtown Vancouver to be up and running by this fall, so I will definitely be looking into that possibility. They are looking to hire many local artists, so we'll see what happens. :)

Thanks for reading!

Hey Chris, thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Thats cool you're another Titan, and that you know Waleed and John. I see you're at R&H, thats cool man. I've been thinking of sending a reel there lately. A friend form Blue Sky worked there in the past, and really enjoyed it. I'll try to post a little more often :)

Duuuuuuude!!! You posted!! Good to know that you're still breathing...But better yet, that you're still working after finishing IA3. Remember, BREATHING IS FOR THE WEAK!

Good Luck with this new gig and thanks for the new email update, eh.

Heya Tally Man! Thank you. Yeah its good to be working again so quickly, but I'll be looking for my next gig again by the end of June. I've been told the first 2 years in the career are the toughest, so its alright. :) How you doing man?
