Hooray for JETLAG! I’m always screwed up for about a day after getting back from the west coast, but this recent trip out to California to experience the CTN Animation Expo was well worth the drowsy stupor of the past few days. I was blown away by just how accessible animation industry professionals were during this event. Wow! I got to meet and chat with a bunch of cool people. Got some great feedback on my portfolio, talked about art process with a few folks, attended several stellar panel discussions, and to top it all off, I got to see Tangled before it’s release at the Walt Disney Animation studio theater. Heaven! Overall, the event was extremely inspirational. I’m in the process now of following up with new connections and looking over notes from the weekend. Here in the next few weeks, I’ll be updating with post discussing the things I learned at the event, and how the new collected information is influencing my art and my process as a result.
In other news, I’m starting production again on my short film “Emma and Molly’s Pet Yeti.” It’s been on hiatus over the past few months while I’ve settled into my new job and new life in New York city. Thankfully I have some time over the next few days to start work again. Feel free to check out the progress so far in the today’s post.
