Prologue: I recently got a part time job at Tiffany & Co. with my good friend Brian, and it's been really great. The design offices for the new leather accessories line is such a different setting from the animation world, but I love them both.
I was working normal hours for 2 weeks, but I've just got an extension for the summer and I now have mondays and fridays to work on another project that I would love to tell you about!
I've been tacked on for a while now as a guest animator for the independent documentary called "Do You Dream in Color?" The film is about a small group of blind teenagers and their inspirational stories. Some of teens have been keeping dream journals and myself along with some other california based animation studios (I'm so alone over here on the east!) will be animating their dream sequences.
I'm so honored to be working on this project and today will mark the first day of real animation for me!! I'm always so nervous to start animating but I can't wait to get this ball rolling.
Check out their Kickstarter page WE HAVE A WEEK LEFT AND 98% OF FUNDS RAISED!!!! PLEASE CONTRIBUTE IF YOU CAN!! You can also check out their trailer below.
I would love to share with you some of the concept art (not featured in the trailer) but it's all being kept very secret (or at least we think it is). SO instead I'll share with you a picture of the snack that the directors (Abigail Fuller, Ivy Dickerson, and Norma Saldivar) sent me today! I was working at home when my buzzer rang and there was a food surprise waiting for me from Kitchen Cold- the food was great and I'm so honored to be working with three amazing young women on this project.
Here's to the long hard road to Sundance- we can do it ladies!! :D
