adventure and absurdity in making an animated short

Tuesday, August 22, 2006

i'm not dead, yet. i feel happy!

thank you to those who keep coming back only to see the same posts. leaving saying, "man, isn't this guy ever going to put something up again." well, like i said in the first post i am trying to get the film done so posts may be few and far. but even though some progress has been made on the short, work work has gotten crazy busy. i've even had to take it home with me. which is family time and leo time. work had to go into the leo time slot and the leo time had to go into the blog and everything else slot, which is a very narrow slot - remember 5 minutes a day, more like 1 minute. but now work is 1/2 crazy and i don't need to take anything home currently. so i will be getting leo done and i will try to post more when i can.

I would love to see a pencil test with this style.

Keep the hard work!

This is looking really good. I like the style a lot. Great concept to use on tea stained paper. Very Vintage.

It sounds like you're getting slammed with work. I really like this project and would be willing to help if you need it. Do you live in the Bay Area? Maybe we could work something out.

Just a thought.

I love the vintage look too! Keep it up!

Hey Jim! Love the blog. I make it a daily habit to check in to see if there are any new posts. I love the look of the tea stained paper. Very cool. I can't wait to see this baby when you're finished! Looking forward to seeing you and some of the Pixar story team at the Screenwriting Expo in October. We should grab lunch or something while you guys are down here in LA.

Hey Jimbo,
Good to see that you're still pressing on with things. If you ever get the time, send an email. I want to know more of what's going on.
