Ha-haÖI love this one.  Another animation I did for the 11 second club.  The trouble was I used up all my time animating the little kidís dance and had to throw the father in at the last minute.  But I had fun animating the kid at least.

 

You can view it on the Animations page.

Holy cow!  I just got back from Target where I picked up my copy of Ben 10: Race Against Time on DVD.  As you know I animated Grey Matter in the film and had a lot of fun doing it.  I donít think Iíll ever get over the cool feeling of seeing your work up on a shelf available to purchase. 

 

 

 

 

P.S. Oh, and just as an aside, I did a small sequence of animated disco dancing guinea pigs that you can check out on Nickelodeonís movie Shredderman Rules! which you can also check out on DVD. (It was a very small clip that I havenít gotten around to posting here)

So I'm sitting around minding my own business today when Super 78 sends me this email...

 

"Variety announced today that Ben 10 is nominated for TWO Visual Effects/Animation awards by the Visual Effects Society."

 

One of those awards being for the Grey Matter sequence I animated for the film!  How cool is that!  Here's a link to the Variety articles list of nominees...

 

Look for my name under the award for ANIMATED CHARACTER IN A LIVE ACTION BROADCAST PROGRAM OR COMMERCIAL

 

So let me get this straight....not only will they pay you, they may even give you awards for playing around all day....pretty sure

COOLEST JOB EVER!!!
