My second LAIKA film - KUBO and the 2 Strings -

Hey Guys,

  I have reached the End of another EPIC Artistic journey guys.

My 10 months on KUBO have been incredibly rewarding and challenged me more than any other project in my Career.

This Film will once again BLOW minds and show what is possible in our Medium. LAIKA
is Creating a Library of films that are going to Launch a lot of Young peoples Imaginations for years to come.

I am leaving with 35 approved shots in the film and some pretty killer moments I cant wait for you to share. I hear that a couple of my shots are making the first teaser I will call them out when it lands.

One of the best pieces of advice I ever received from a fellow animator was to {Fall in Love with your characters.} Fall in love ---- WITH  them......

WHEN YOU LOVE YOUR CHARACTERS - like your family -

you will care for every frame in a very different way.
You will apply that Love - that energy - to all aspects of the character.

know who they are  - understand all of their motivations - care for every hair - every gesture.

I felt the HUGE difference when I really really took this advice in. The animation becomes even more emotional.....the care you put in the movements are so much more thoughtful and less was a big moment for me.

   I hope to carry this through my entire career from here on.

You guys will get your first peek at KUBO in the very near future and I will post it here to make sure.

I finished my last shot on the Friday night before Halloween
then I jumped in my truck and made my way towards Los Angeles. I made it home in time to trick or treat and have a Sunday with the family.

The very next Day I started my new gig back in the CG chair at Blizzard on the cinematic's team.

I have been here for 3 weeks now ad have to say.....this is the BEST cg job - studio I have ever worked for. I am kind of Blown away.

Great subject matter - GREAT characters - wonderful Story's And Super Fun animation!!

I feel very fortunate in life and in my Art....

the Animation I am doing here is getting my Passion Boiling.....and I will definitely share here as it goes live.
