From the Mailbox

Got this in the analog inbox on Monday. I was going to share an electric bill but second guessing myself, I went with this instead. Starting in September I'm going to be heading to Blue Sky for temp work on Ice Age:Continental Drift! I've never been to New York or any part of the upper east coast before so I'm excited to get out there and check it out. I've heard great things about the people at Blue Sky as well. It'll be somewhere around 4-6 months of what I'm expecting to be a great experience! Between meeting new people, awesome animation, and exploring the town I'm sure the time is going to fly by. Now I just need to find out who's playing poker and where...

I'm definitely going to miss my DreamWorks Animation family but hope to squeak my way back in eventually! You have all been amazing coworkers and friends so it'll be a pleasure to work with you again! -deuces

In case you didn't piece together the word puzzle from my last post, it was - Cross Country Trip. :)

How To Train Your Dragon interview with AM

About 6 months ago four other animators and myself took part in an interview with Animation Mentor to talk about working on How To Train Your Dragon. They shot two lengthy interviews, one with two animators up at PDI and another here in Burbank with three of us from the Glendale campus. The first video, A Toothless Dinner, released back in October was cut down to a 9 minute clip but here are some more videos they've cut from the interviews. I had a lot of fun taking part in this and enjoyed hearing what Mike Stern, Tyler Phillips, Ron Pucherelli, and Dane Stogner had to say about their experiences on the film as well! I'd like to thank AM for asking me to be a part of it and hope to see them continue these interviews with others!
