adventure and absurdity in making an animated short

who what why

my name is jim capobianco. this blog is about a short film that's been in the works for some time now. officially 1999 to give a rough start date. it's title is LEONARDO. it is about 8 minutes long and drawn by hand. done completely in off hours from the day job, the film is 10 scenes away - 104 feet -from the entire short being animated, at least in a rough manner. after that milestone, victory, landmark, holy shit moment, the footage clock will be set back to 650ft 14frames and the tie-down and inbetween begins. that is where "Leo" is right now. the blog is a diary of sorts to chronicle the rest of this nutty enterprise and perhaps some animator or film-maker out there will stumble upon it and get inspired or decide to do something better with their time. the posts may be few and far between, there is a short to finish after all and there are regrettably only 24 hours in a day, but an effort will be made to keep it up.

we realize you have a lot of choices in the blogosphere, thanks for spending some time with this one.
