Claire & the Keys

I want to present everyone with ANOTHER Kickstarter campaign!! This time from my very close friend John B. Ludwick! This has been a passion project as I have been by Ludwick's side since the inception that long walk back in LA, late one night.

Ludwick and I have pitched to Disney, tackled some monster mayhem burgers in CO, storyboarded an entire feature film in a week and were in Animation Mentor together back in 2007. He's been a big part of my success, he's been instrumental in my life as a collaborator and a great friend.


And I'm pleased as a peach to help him make his dream into a reality, and it's been incredible watching this story progress. That's why I'm asking all my comrades to help!

On Claire & the Keys my roles have been to serve as story supervisor; I've helped a bit on storyboards here and there, and tightened continuity with each new edit. After MANY, many, many late nights talking, writing, drawing the characters, their backstory, and going rounds and rounds over the development of the short film, it's finally on it's way to be completed.

If anyone deserves it, it's Ludwick. So I'm asking all my fellow animators, artists, friends and anyone who loves music to help donate or spread the word by sharing and liking the page! Thanks for reading, thanks for watching and thanks for the help!  Pledge here

cool art work created by John Hoffman

We had our first crew meeting the other night, and you could feel the energy in the room! Most of us hadn't seen one other since our last film shoot in December. So it was great to get moving on the project again.

And again, thank you to everyone who helped make this possible. We have two weeks left of filming and it's going to be intense but fun! Oh, and check out our facebook page! Give us a LIKE! :P


Respect Yourself

And respect others in the industry.

Stephen Sliver just released a video encouraging artists to stop wasting their time and energy by creating art for free. I love it.

Back in Colorado I struggled running my own company, I took on a lot of odd and end gigs but they were all paid. I always ran into individuals or organizations that wouldn't pay me industry standard wages or what I felt I was worth. And I would always walk away. I learned the hard way, and I learned very quickly. (except for my tv series project - but that's another story for another time.)

Anyways, watch the video, it's worth your time. Thanks Stephen.
