Animation Show of Shows

If you can catch it, this is a pretty cool traveling collection of animated short films. Ron Diamond puts it on and usually has a couple of the filmmakers with him to discuss their stuff. Last year I got to meet Cordell Barker who was screening his short Runaway. I got him to sign a DVD copy of his Oscar-nominated The Cat Came Back, which I've always loved since I was a kid.

Below is this year's playbill and the screening schedule is here.

Back to Tippett's

If this were an actual blog it would be a pretty terrible one. Why do I even have this?

Well since I do I might as well say hey, I'm back at Tippett Studio for a stint. Working once again with some unbelievably talented folks. I'll leave you with a sketch of the Godfather himself, Mr. Phil Tippett drawn by my current Animation Supervisor. Click the pic to see more animators' doodles of the big guy on his facebook page.

UPDATE: Just launched today - Phil's YouTube channel! Lot's of great interviews, behind-the-scenes "making of" clips, and animation tests!
