Traveling Fun

For the past couple of weeks I've been traveling around the area checking out the sites. I'm not sure where my next job will take me so I'm soaking up the California culture while I can. I am interviewing with several companies and may make a decision here soon but I'm trying very hard not to rush things. I'm also not going to disclose any of the companies because every time I do, I seem to jinx myself. I'll let everyone know when I sign on the dotted line (so to speak). Disney has informed me that they are holding a slot for me on American Dog which is very nice of them but I'm a bit nervous about the fact that they are not promoting Meet the Robinsons. Just last night I must have seen five ads for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and not one for MTR. Very disappointing. In the coming weeks we'll see if Pixar backs MTR. If they don't, then we know they won't back American Dog and they plan to ditch 3d at Disney Feature Animation. I tend to avoid sinking ships... besides, I still want to work in games. I would be more excited to work on a major next gen game than I would to work on the next big feature film. I would also like to go to GDC next week in San Francisco so if anyone can get me in...

Let the Promotions Begin!

As you might have noticed, Meet the Robinsons will be coming out on March 30th. I'm starting to see lots of ads all of a sudden and I hear that they are going for a huge blitz 3 weeks before opening. If that's true, it swats down the rumor that Pixar is trying to sweet MTR under the rug. I think it's a very cute film so I hope this is not true. Here's a picture of me with some of the characters that will be seen at the parks.
