Merry Chritsmas!!

I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and for those that celebrate other holidays HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you!!

This was one hell of a year. A bit of reflection for me.

-09 Started off with a terrible bang, followed by madness with finished up AM.
-Then jumped on a Discovery Channel project in the middle of finishing up my schooling
-Gramps isn't doing so well, finish last week of school or go see him for the last time.. I went and thankfully passed AM!! Working hard with the team trying to keep everyone motivated on the film but as graduation grew closer we all pretty -much took a much needed break.
-Started reenergizing my batteries, meet up with tons of AM school mates to celebrate graduating, had a trip of a life time with some friends
-Came back refreshed and the blinders came off- focused on making my temple strong again doing all sorts of fun things: dance classes, yoga, parkour, kayaking, taking different religion classes, tai chi, exploring CO's awesome mountains, etc etc.
- Quickly teamed up with Michal Finegold for a animboom contest
-Found out NetDevil was looking for another animator and they contacted me!!
-My grandpa passed away - so great full I went to see him
-Started my new gig at NetDevil
-Regrouping the team, for the last big Hoo RA! - learning that my time management went out the window - trying to refocus my time where it is needed then I am trying to get back on the horse for staying active and in shape.
-Lessons in life; Friends are worth fighting for!
-Time to kick ass in '10

Also thank you, to everyone for their support, and all my love and wishes go out to everyone pursing their dream! If it was easy, everyone would do it.

WHOOA! Slow it down there... the art team at Netdevil all went to go watch the flick and wow. Then I watched it again in 3D!!

Is that how this stuff is suppose to be done or what?! Aside from UP and Coraline the use of 3D was fantastic I felt. Overall, the movie was nothing mind-blowing storytelling wise, but what one hell of a ride!

I think that's all it was meant to be, to entertain, and I believe over the next weeks it will be rolling the cash in from people going back. I was predicting what was going to happen next almost every-time (which sucked) but still felt super glued to the screen. And man! That's what its about when it comes down to it. No need to freak on reinventing the wheel, just tell a story in a new and entertaining way and boom! You have Avatar!

I also think this is a movie experience not to pass up, go see it in the theater!
