Captain's Log
Part I: Shoving Off




With funds secured and crew assembled, this weekend marks the launch of my new animated short, Nail'd. The project is being produced independently of Pixar with some old friends from back home in Sacramento, including my highschool animation teacher, Shawn Sullivan. I'll be working with Shawn's current students, hopefully giving them a taste of what the film-making process is like. And if my previous student films are any indication, we're in for some stormy seas!

Our local newspaper, The Elk Grove Citizen, was kind enough to cover the story.

I was just going to use this as my production blog. This will be a bit of a long-term project, so I'll be giving monthly captain's logs to keep you guys abreast of our animated voyage.

Sweet. Also, you had animation class in high school? Jealous.

Daniel said...

Man, I wish I'm part of that high school...I've started an animation club at my school after reading about your old animation ROP class. That would be great if I can get my club to start a project like this. Keep us updated so I can get some ideas. :)
