Miss Universe 2013

The annual production of Miss Universe 2013 was held in Moscow, Russia this year and it was an unbelievable opportunity.  I value my Miss Universe experiences, they are definitely unique and rewarding experiences and the people behind them are incredible.

And cut...

 Messing around between editing segments.  What can I say... really wish I had more time to draw these days.

The Crossroads...

It's been a crazy couple of years here in Texas.  Been on the set of the Miss Universe Pageant, The Celebrity Apprentice, met amazing people, ridden in a private jet to New York City, seen incredible things, heard fantastic stories and there's more to come.  Probably the best thing about it is I've had the opportunity to work on yet another amazing project.
Lately I've really been missing animation.  I've been think a lot of the short I started and never completed.  The prospect of having to decide what direction I wanted my career to take saddened me until I realized how much more I recognize in people as characters with stories since I really began editing and compositing full time.  I've got a library of character reference, reactions and expressions, people behaving for all situations, stories you can't make up.  I've experienced things I've never would have thought of moving controllers on a rig to the rhythms of the timeline.  In a way, I have a fresh perspective and sometimes that's all you need to take things to the next level.
Having said that...
I'm ready to start working on some new things again and finally animate my short- "The Squeakeasy."
Meanwhile, when I'm not serious, here's something I'm developing.

On the Set of Chi v. Biosilk: The Celebrity Apprentice

A segment from the show that I'm working on - we were flown to New York for this in the beginning of November last year.  This project was fun, running a very close second to Miss Universe.

Miss Universe 2012

Just spent nearly the entire month of December at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino with the Miss Universe Pageant.  Got to spend time with all of the girls, meet the photographers, runway coordinators, and the people that make it happen.  It was my first beauty pageant, and while I had an idea of what it was going to be like, I had no idea how fun it would be :).  All of the contestants were incredibly friendly (no cat fights), and the production was spot-on.  Loved being part of the show!
