Wonderful and inspiring. Great short... must watch!

"Assistant Mayor Bellwether" Clip - Disney's Zootopia


Check out this fun clip from Zootopia. I had a chance to watch the film at the wrap party a few weeks ago and I have to say. Disney is by far really kicking ass these days. They are at the top of their game and it's really refreshing and inspiring to see!

Animation "Get rich quick"

Really??? I know of zero animators who studied animation to "get rich quick" or to have "job security". 

I honestly couldn't believe what I was watching and reading in this article... so I had to share the absurdity.

Check out the article on CartoonBrew.

Here's a good article I came across on women and the gender inequality in our industry. I have to say, from my own experience I have noticed some inequality in the past, but I've never felt it directed at me. And in general I think these cases are less and less common these days. Here's to hoping in a short time we won't even be talking about this because it'll be a non-issue.

Oscars - Animation Category

http://www.cartoonbrew.com/award-season-focus/2016-oscar-nominations-animation-analysis-130801.html#

So with the Oscars approaching I read an interesting article. This one covers the Animation Category and what we should expect from these films this year.

My choice is, hands down, Inside Out. This was a creative and original story and definitely entertaining film. My little girl (who's only 3) sat through most of it... I look forward to seeing it again and again with her as she gets older.

Happy 2016!

Hi All- So much great news in the new year. I've accepted a position at ReelFX Animation Studios and have been working on their next announced feature of Scooby Doo. It's an all new fully animated feature directed by
Tony Cervone!



I'm super excited to be on the film and getting to bring these old characters back to life! More news to follow.
