Excited to announce that Another has been accepted to the Northwest Animation Festival!  I’m extremely grateful that Another has had the chance to play at a couple of festivals, it’s such a long movie that it feels like a serious commitment and vote of confidence for any festival to actually program it.  So thank you! These old tests are fun to watch now that I’m working on a film that is all digital.

watch this, (it’s worth it)

The team either did amazing research on play areas at fast food places or have incredible, vivid memories of what they were like because this really took me back. I mean it is spot on. Not to overshadow the fact that this is looking to be a good show, but I’m just so amazed at how accurate the portrayal of this was, hahaha.

Excellent!

Some production art I digged up from “American Dog” which eventually became “Bolt”. 


American Dog was written and directed by Chris SandersThe film’s plot told the story of a dog named Henry, a famous TV star, who one day finds himself stranded in the Nevada desert with a testy, one-eyed cat and an oversized, radioactive rabbit who are themselves searching for new homes, all the while believing he is still on television. In 2006, after becoming Chief Creative Officer at Disney, John Lasseter along with other directors from Pixar and Disney viewed a couple of early cuts of the film and gave Chris Sanders notes on how to improve the story. 

Sanders was eventually kicked from the project for not following the advice given, and was replaced by Chris Williams and Byron Howard to direct and release the film by 2008. They had half the time they would normally finish the film, after rewriting it completely.. we eventually got “Bolt”. According to Lasseter, Chris Sanders was replaced because he resisted the changes that Lasseter and the other directors had suggested. Lasseter was quoted as saying “Chris Sanders is extremely talented, but he couldn’t take it to the place it had to be.”

I followed this production for quite a while (I’m a big Sanders fan) and was gutted when it fell to pieces. What a movie it could have been!

“American Dog”

Which became  “Bolt”

Forever wishing I could’ve seen THIS in theatres instead.

Don’t even get me started on how disappointed I was to the changes to this movie. I actually have some more production art and some test footage on an old external I might dig up for tumblr in the coming week. It seemed like Chris Sanders was doing a good job on it, but they kicked him off on the grounds it was “too quirky” or some crap like that. So so so disappointing. 

Reblogging this again, gonna show you guys some of the production art I have!

I had these hanging around so I thought I might as well show them and explain the crap i do XDsometimes people ask about my process soo here it goes!first thumbnail type sketches… these are basically to give a rough idea of pose, for me.. theyre often off model and a lil awkward but they’ll do. I think about the line of action a lot during this stage and sketch very quickly. I also generally show this to the commissioner and ask if they want any changes (and there was a few)secondary sketches.. help me hone down on some of those poses and properly put down construction and get things looking clearer for me to ink. I often play around with other expressions and slight changes/fixes to things so they make more sense. I flip the canvas a lot at this point.time for inking.. basically inking is the longest and (honestly a lil boring) process where the aim is mostly to get the same life as the sketch, really. you just gotta take your time and make sure your sketches are thought through before you ink. Sometimes I still change things up though, as you can see. I forgot to clean up one of the headshot sketches, so I did it in the inking process xD also the ears didnt look right in some of the sketches o: This is a good example to why sometimes you even need to do a THIRD primarily sketch x3 hehand that’s it, then you just add colour which is easy! xP
