My first Toy Story promo shot

There is an invisible moving going on here at Pixar right now. Invisible in the sense that the films have already been made, but the promotional material for them is rolling out now. I'm currently having a blast animating the characters that I loved and grew up with as a kid.

Here is the new trailer for the Toy Story 1 & 2 3 theatrical re-release. I got to help work on this trailer the first week I arrived back at the studio!

Be sure to catch Toy Story 1 and 2 on the big screen AGAIN in 3D starting October 2nd. This double feature will run for 2 weeks ONLY so don't miss it!

More Frequent Blog Updates

Hello all!

It seems that out of most folks I know, I update my blog the least. So I've decided that I am going to start sharing more of my personal journal entries through this blog. Keep an eye peeled for entries filled with thoughts and observations on story, behavior, movement, character, design and entertainment in general.

Since Michael Jackson's death last week, I've been watching many of his music videos and stage performances. I thought I would share this clip. The contrast of his movements and their timing here are pretty amazing. The smooth and slower transitions mix perfectly with his sharp hits and dramatic body shape changes. The added texture of his hand and finger gestures are also very appealing. Watch how loose he is in one moment an how ridged and secure his poses are in the next. Very cool stuff.
