And so do I.
I've successfully moved to Florida! After a long run in film and video games, I've decided to start my own studio. Theory Studios is born! We are working on our first web series, plus some CG software that we plan to show off later in July for SIGGRAPH. It's going to be an exciting year. Stay tuned.

Jill made the mistake of making cookies for me. I know she works very hard at keep these things special, but, sometimes... Sometimes I can't help myself. Today was one of those days.
Things are progressing well at Theory Animation. Ray & Clovis look tests are coming back and it is looking great. We're also cranking through technology to get the whole thing working well. Blender has definitely been a huge help for us. Our goal is to have a new solid edit and rendered shots by the end of this month. You can follow our progress here on our Facebook page.
I was also at the Annies last night with my buddy Michael Cawood. What a great event and what an awesome group of people. Best story? I asked the director of Brave (Mark Andrews) to hold a camera while I had a photo taken with Steve Purcell; creator of Sam & Max. Poor Mark Andrews just played second fiddle while more people realized who Steve was and asked for similar photos. By the way did I mention Mark directed Brave??
Alright, back to work!

I'm a little silly, I'll grant the world that. This past year I went to a number of conferences (American Film Market, CTN, ComicCon, SIGGRAPH!) and well, was me. I met an acquisitions executive by spilling coffee and donuts on him at the AFM (oops!) At CTN I and a supervisor were a bit drunk and suddenly I found him twirling me on the dance floor at midnight... At the AFM again I gave a pitch with my zipper down. People loved it and the zipper. Later I went from the zipper guy to the question guy at AFM. This happened at SIGGRAPH too, where panelists didn't like the flaws of their ideas pointed out in public. One guy actually nervously laughed and moved onto another question (whoa!) Then at ComicCon I met a pornstar by asking her if she'd take a picture with me and my brother. Did I mentioned I used the urinal next to Robert Downey Jr as well?
This town is quite fun and people love to talk a lot here. Mostly about themselves. Maybe that's why I like it so much?
Anyways, enough with the socializing in 2013. I've got a new short and some other magic to finish this year!

It's not everyday you see see an artery. Sometimes the animals are so fat that just finding your way around can be tough! Don't worry by the way, I'm obviously exaggerating, the animal is fine.
I'm still at Rhythm and Hues! And at home I've begun a new short and an app. More soon...

I didn't know how to cut around it since the other half of my tomato was strangling a sheep. After some deliberation though I did get my sandwich made!
I am working at Rhythm and Hues for a spell! It is a lovely studio filled with some nice people who haven't gotten too tired of me yet. I'm happy!
In other news, the new short film is gaining a ton of ground. More on this soon as it is available. Until then... clean out your fridge!
