Hi all -
lot of news today.
Pen vs. Pencil will be appearing at the LA
International Short Film Festival, which will be at
the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood from September 6 - 13.
Specifically, my film will be part of program #26 and shown
at 5:45 PM
on Thursday Sept 8th. So anyone in the LA area feel free
to check it out.
This is a cool thing because this isn't just an animation
festival...it's a short film festival, and animation is only
one of the categories. As they say on their site, "LA
Shorts Fest attracts the highest caliber of short films made
each year. Since its' inception, twenty festival participants
have gone on to earn Academy Award nominations and six have
won the Oscar for their films." I'm not saying PvsP is going
to win an oscar, it's just nice to party with those people
Nextoons info. PvsP will air on Nicktoons August 22nd, 9:00
PM Pacific/12:00 AM Eastern and repeat 3 hours later. Makes
me wonder if they really want people to watch this ;). The
also be simulcast on www.nicktoons.com,
where you can probably vote for your favorite...mine. I'll
be sending a reminder...don't you worry.
Big Fat Independent Movie is coming to
theaters. This is the indy film I worked
on more than a year ago. It will be in limited
September 30th, then rolling out to more
cities through October. Check out the official
web site for more info. I've told a few of
you about this...it pokes fun of a slew of
indy films like Momento, Amelie and Pulp
Fiction. It has lots of toilet humor so it's
NOT for the light hearted, so Mom, you won't
you will. If
you want to see what I mean, check out the
shot that I worked on here. Regardless,
I think the movie's hilarious.
1672. No, that's not some important date in history (it may be
to someone...just not me). That's how many miles (2691 km) I
drove with Alison up the California coastline from Laguna Beach
to Seattle. It was a lot of fun. Some of the highlights were
we spent a night at the famed Madonna Inn where we had a rock
wall room (I'm not kidding...check it out here),
saw the Hearst Castle and
ate lunch at Skywalker
Ranch (read an old fan tour here).
When I go through all my stuff (I haven't even unpacked yet),
to gather a few photos and post them with more details. Give
me some time on this one...I was away for 2 weeks and need a
vacation from the vacation ;).
