Hey guys-Well it's been a very very long time coming but, it's finally here Sinbad The Fifth Voyage will finally be in theaters This coming February 7th. There's a list of cities it will be showing…Continue
So glad you finally got a demo reel out! I am on a kludged-together system using a tablet with a phone connection wi-fied to my portable (don't ask!), and so I cannot download because it is horribly expensive and uses up the small bandwidth I have on the tablet, but at least I can communicate.
The animation school has had major problems, the politicos apparently were jerking me around, insincere, probably using the project specs to impress the President in a list of what they were supposedly working on. They would demand instant updates, presentations, etc. and say they would back me when I applied to the state for financing, but whenever I asked them to set up an appointment to go in together, or a letter of support they would either have some lame excuse or set an appointment and neither show up nor even have the courtesy to cancel. Real assholes. I finally told them to call me when they were serious and they blew up, accusing me of wanting to game the system for my own profit! I cut that short by telling them they could red-line any budget item they felt was out of line, but by then the trust had been broken.
So I am trying to do it on my own, looking for some land on which to build a house and a structure for a studio/school for about 10 students. I am getting old, and don't have much time left to do long-term projects, so all I can do is keep slogging along and live vicariously through those of you who are actually doing things. I am filling my time with studying screen writing, directing, photography, etc. to be prepared when I finally can afford things like latex, a camera, software, etc. . . . you know, the STUFF!
Thank you for your enthusiasm for the project, and, who knows, maybe it will eventually be real and I will have you down here teaching a workshop!
Hopefully my internet connection will be upgraded, I am living in a rather remote area, and having the devil of a time getting an ADSL connection put in, so I will probably be on irregularly at best, don't think I have abandoned THE QUEST!
As ever, your work inspires me, awes me, and I am very thankful for your friendship. My email address is email@example.com if you want to write.

Where are you guys getting supplies for ball and socket armatures? I didn't want to spend the $100 online. Ive heard of people taking apart the helping hands tools you can buy for soldering but I can't find them at stores.
I'm working on a new project, and am needing to make a really anatomically precise puppet. I've been watching this test of the T-Rex that Tippett did way back when, and I'm just floored by the way the skin slides over the pelvis, ribcage, and other…Continue
