So I've been up in Portland, Or since just before Thanksgiving. For the first month I was working at Bent Image Lab on an awesome project that should be airing soon in Europe! I can't wait to sneak that into my reel. Unfortunately, the show didn't go as long as it was supposed too and the second contract i was on ended up outsourcing to Spain so I've been left with a lot of free time. My next contract doesn't start up until February, but hopefully there will be lots more to come. Sounds like they're ramping up big time for a lot of fun stuff!
In the meantime, my wife and I have been exploring the area and I've been working like a madman on my new reel. I started a new shot over the holidays (I'll post Work In Progress in the next post) i have a bunch of other shots i never finished, another new one i wanna start and some of the professional work I've done at Bent. I'm hoping to have a new reel rocking by May an then it's time to flood the studios again and cross my fingers.
This weekend I'm heading back home to SF for my graduation ceremony from Animation Mentor. Can't wait to see all my buddies from around the world as well as my family back home!
In any case, I'm sick of sitting around on my butt, so i hope to get this blog back in shape and sharing my adventures with you!
