So my reel is up, sort of...

Ok, I finally have my demo reel up....sort of. This is my pre "Ant Bully" none of my work for the last two years is on there. But soon, the movie release Aug 4th and then I will add all kinds of "ant" goodness. Take a look under the animation tab, let me know what you think. You will need the latest version of quicktime to view it...on a different note...

Last night I was blessed with the opportunity to meet the man, the myth, the legend...Ray Harryhausen. I'll be talking about that more later. You'll get to enjoy all kinds of nerdy goodness.

Ray is still the man...

If you haven't had the opportunity go pick up a copy of the "The Art of Ray Harryhausen"

I'll admit it, I'm one of those guys who goes all "nerd" when the name Harryhausen is brought up in mixed company. Very few people in our industry have had such a positive impact and been so influential. I could go on and on but I'm starting to drip nerd sweat all over my keyboard so I'll just leave you with....GET THE BOOK!!!

And baby makes three...

For those of you fortunate enough to know Hamish and Janet McKenzie then sound the trumpets and rejoice for they have brought into the world a baby boy...and if he's half as smart as his mom and dad he'll be levitating stuff by the end of next week.

I would love to give out info but being a parent myself (yes, someone actually made babies with me) I don't want to give out info or post pictures without parental consent...and I'm thinking they're a little too busy to ask at the moment.

Soooooo instead I give you WEBCAM BEAR!!!!

Big Man on Campus

Bow down before the mighty animation power of Mark Behm. Not only is a great animator, not only is he an awesome traditional artist...not only is he taking a door to the face better than anyone I know...he is also Animation Mentor's "Mentor of the Month"

"Did you ever know that you're my hero....and everything I would like to be...I could fly higher than an are the wind beneath my Behm"......ok, it was funnier in my head.

The man of the hour

You can see the intelligence just pouring out of him...

Such a dork

As the always wise Amila Puhala says, "You...uh....", ok, I can't exactly remember what she said but it was something about winning battles n' stuff. Anyway, after getting my final critiques done for Mentor, I was up till 1:00 am getting this thing up and least the bones of it anyway. Needless to say I've been showing everyone with the patience to actually look. It just feels good to get something done and "out there". Now for you folks that had the patience to read through this here's a picture of the DNA Animation crew....and puppets.

Well here I am

I'm finally on the web. Yeah, I know...everyone who get's on the web says, "Hey look, I'm finally on the web, blah blah, it's about time, blah blah, technology make brain hurt, blah blah, me smack keyboard with rock..."

Hopefully I'll have the rest of the site up my next week.
