Marcelino and Bartolomeo: Bye Bye!

My wife and I met Mario Pochat and his wife last year in San Diego. In fact we graduated together in the second graduation class ever at Animation Mentor :)

I was really happy to see his awesome short film featured on the front page of YouTube. This film is an incredible piece of animation!

Watch "Marcelino and Bartolomeo: Bye Bye!" on YouTube.

Go Mario!

To Infinity and Beyond - The Pixar Story

The book "To Infinity and Beyond - The Story of Pixar Animation Studios" popped into my mailbox a couple of days ago and I'm already hooked. It's an amazing peek into how it all started back in the 70's and became what's todays Pixar. Absolutely recommended.

Can't wait for
Leslie Iwerks documentary to come out on DVD :)
