Cars 2, Electric Bugaloo.... We can't wait.
So, you may or may not know Cars 2 is coming out this June. I'm getting really excited and the one major I love that Pixar does to get you so excited for the movie without ever spoiling the plot or showing all of the funny parts in the movie is all their promotional content that circulates the web. I showed the official trailer to my 2 year old (he's a HUGE Cars' fan already) and now he asks to see it every time I'm on the computer. I don't think he understands that it won't be out till June, but I can tell he's just as excited as I am to see it! You know we'll be there opening day. I've been seeing a lot of new characters going around the "interwebs" and think they have tons of appeal. I'll post some below for you enjoyment.
I finished up my first official animation job back in February and it has given me a lot more free time to spend with my awesome family and friends, time to work on my demo reel and I've been playing more video games in the past few months then I have in years!! I was able to get through about 9 shots for the movie and am excited to see them rendered and in the movie. I'm only working 2 jobs now (56 hours a week) and it feels like nothing. I've been making good headway on my monologue Rounders' shot I'm working on for my demo reel and have been getting excellent feedback, it's amazing how much it's helped the shot progress to get it where it's at now! I've said it before and I'll say it again... The AM community completely rocks!! So supportive, helpful and encouraging. I've got another acting shot I want to do, as well as a pantomime shot I'm going to start planning... so hopefully I'll have 3 new shots to go on my demo reel by July.
In other news; we've official outgrown our home and are trying to get our house on the market by June... so my demo reel might not be ready till the fall. We'll see how my time management goes. And hopefully our new home will have an office for me.... that would rock!!
Check out this appeal!! (and awesome animation)
