Final Term of AnimationMentor!

Now that A Christmas Carol is done, I can spend more time doing my final piece for AM!
just to keep in standing with other students at the school, I’ll post my stuff, but if you steal it, I friggen kill you. seriously. I will kill you. I watch Dexter; I know how to do it right. I would love feedback. but the comments section always ends up with spam so just email me some comments using the contact form.
Here is the layout stage as it stands now. the music is just stand-in for mood. I’m still looking for the Hawaiian themed music for each section:

Carol is done… Gathering my wits

I’m finally finished with my part inĀ  Disney’s Christmas Carol starring Jim Carrey. It’s going to be a great film.

I’m gathering my wits and hitting the gym trying to recoup. I start my final term at AM on Sept 28th. I have my short film layed out, but haven’t blocked much yet. I will be playing catchup as always.

As for Carol, it looks great! I think it’s going to be a great film. I was kinda weirded out to see the trailer in front of Inglorious Basterds, but at least my friends to to see what it was I’ve spent the last two years of my life on.

I had lunch with Ralph Eggleston of Pixar last week.
Ralph Eggleston

He was presenting a friend’s film, “Something’s Gonna Live“, at a special Pixar screening. Afterward we sat in the cafeteria at Pixar and talked silent film, Technicolor history, production design, the pressures of cost-cutting at animation studios, etc. Great guy. He gave us the standard tour, but his years of experience at Pixar meant he had insider stories — they were fascinating.
