Cloudy with a chance for animators

Hi all,

I can finally talk about this, and man, was it hard not to tell anyone. I just got hired as a full-time animator on "Cloudy with a chance of meatballs" for Sony Imageworks, starting this October right after finishing my contract with Microsoft!

In case you don't know too much about this American children's book, check it out here. I received the offer on Tuesday and Sara and I decided to go to Los Angeles - Culver City, here we come!

This is just exciting. The animation supervisor/lead on this show is Peter Nash who has worked at Pixar, BlueSky, and at Sony. He has worked on some of my all-time favorite movies like Monster's Inc. and Surf's Up.

Finally, production on Animation Mentor's first alumni project has started and this is a very early preview of the shot I'm working on...

Happy animating... I'm off to celebrate now!
