Last night I went to see Ratatouille at the Metreon in San Francisco. It marks my fifth time seeing the film since our Wrap party almost a month ago, and I have to say- it was one of the best movie-going experiences I've ever had. There's something lacking when you watch the movie with Pixarians only, most of whom have worked on it for the past 6 years.. but being able to ride the film (and it was a ride) with an audience who has NO idea whats going to happen is a rare treat. I had the most amazing woman sit infront of me who had absolutely no inhibitions when it came to expressing how much the film moved her. I highly suggest sitting near someone who looks like they might be one of those folk- so entertaining. When I arrived at the theatre an hour early there was already a line of about 60 people, and I half-hoped I wouldn't be able to get in, were it to sell out. We were ushered over to someone's apartment afterward for a large party where I had the pleasure of meeting some students from the Academy of Art, all of whom freaked out when they asked me where I work. I don't think I've ever felt like a celebrity before, but they sure treated me like one, and that was pretty neat. All in all I had a blast, and can't stress enough that if you enjoy movies, you'll absolutely love this film. So go! Now!

Finally back to animating!

Yep, I spent my whole weekend at Pixar, animating Remy. It was nice to have some fellow animators around for once too- makes going in and getting work done a lot more enjoyable. All the interns are doing Luxo tests to get their feet wet with our software. Now that Ratatouille is coming out in a week, I should be able to finally post the tests I did! I want to get cleared on that first though before I post anything (you probably haven't noticed but I took down the links to other animation I've done with Pixar characters, just to play it safe.. you know, now that I have a job to worry about and all).

The teaser for the film I'm working on is out! Yay, Wall-E.. there's talk that I'm going to be given a chance to do some animation for the film, with the characters I've been building =) Let's hope!

Fresh meat

Art, Animation, and Story interns started today at Pixar.. there's about 20 of them or so.. I'm super excited to be meeting 'em all! Maybe they'll give me the kick in the pants that I need to do more tests and stuff on my off-time.

Work is challenging, the pace ever-quickening, and everything else falls by the way-side. Sorry everyone that I haven't posted in a while- I've been under the weather.

This is just a little girl for the fun of it- I don't really know what it is that she's looking at, but I'm getting some really strong urges to make a children's book of some sort...
