So I received a surprising email yesterday morning... I was offered a position at Blue Sky Studios as an animator!!! WHAT?!! I mean I can't believe it, but needless to say, I have 4 months to finish up my film before I start the long commute to Whiteplains to work on Horton Hears a Who! I also met up with Alex Kupershmidt and some other Disney reps to show my portfolio over at NYU that afternoon. Once again I was very surprised that they liked what I had to show. For the first time ever, I had FEATURE ANIMATION ARTISTS looking at my work in person, and giving me advice as to what was strong and what could be cut from my reel. It was especially crazy to be sitting next to Alex while he pointed out how much he liked my drawn portfolio... I mean he sat there, pointing at MY drawings telling me I HAD to apply for an animation position at Disney (even after I told them I was offered a position at Blue Sky). It was a surreal experience to say the least. Anyway, I will post my reel soon, and I will leave you with some pages from my portfolio. What a day!
