Monthly Music Find - Passion Pit

Hey I'm gonna try and bring this section back to life. Its been a while since I did my last monthly music find but this song made me decide to start sharing my new music finds again. This band began as a valentines gift for the kead singer's girlfriend and grew into something more. Their first album was released a couple months ago. This song stands out for me. I love the happy synth pop. Hope you do too.

Getting Better

I wanted to share this blog post from the animation mentor tips and tricks blog. It's written by Pixar animator Chris Chua and covers how to become a better animator. Theres some great advice in there that I think everyone can benefit from. Very cool and worth the read.

Gawwd I love animtion!

Saturday Night at the Geffen

Melissa and I had a really nice night out at the Geffen playhouse on Saturday night. We went out to celebrate Melissa's Birthday which was last Wednesday. Anyway, I took her to see Farragut North, a play starring Chris Pine (Star Trek's new Kirk) and Chris North (Mr. Big from Sex and the City). Its the story of a political campaign troubled by backroom politics and sexual tension. It was awesome! I have seen to many plays live and especially not one that was acted so well. I forgot I was watching a stage show. As an animator its great to reference good acting and to see it up close, so for that aspect it was great too. Theres a few shows playing this season at the Geffen that we'd like to check out. I think we are hooked on the theater now!

Band Together: First Teaser

I have finally found the time to block out a little teaser for Band Together. I am using it as an opportunity to develop the character's personalities as well as style of motion. The story for this little teaser is still in the works, but the basic idea is there. Now I just have to find the time to finish it off. That might not happen for a little while.

New scene from Shane Acker's 9

This is looking awesome. I'm excited for an animated feature that pushes the genre into a darker, more creative place.
