Palm Springs Pics

Thought I'd post some pics from the Palm Springs Shortfest (Barko's world premiere). It screened on Thursday, June 24th with a group of other animated shorts, and then again the following Monday with the Best of the Fest program. (I saw later on the website that based on audience vote, Barko was #3 out of 35 animated films)! Josh, his parents, and I had a great experience and a nice little vacation to boot. (Although it was 108 degrees. YOWZA). It was the first time I got to see Barko on the big screen which was pretty crazy. And the audience reacted really well! Laughing, awwwwing, gasping in all the right moments. Lots of other good films in the bunch as well. I have a soft spot for David OReilly's Please Say Something. Freakin genius! Afterwards, introverted me had to get up and do a Q&A with one other director that was there. Luckily the nerves went away once I was up there, and no one asked me anything impossible to answer. :) Thanks again Titmouse and all the Titmice helper peoples!

Melba Toast

This is Melba Toast, my subject for Titmouse's 3rd annual 5-second animation day. We get a whole day to animate whatever we want to and then the following day, we watch them all together. So here are some sketches of Melba I did a couple nights ago. I went with the middle one and animated her today. I'll post the animation as soon as we screen them!

Sorry to those of you who've already seen all this! (Titmouse and I have been bombarding Facebook lately.) But the Barko website is now up on You can watch the trailer here or there, but the site has some gallery images to peruse if you're interested. I'll keep posting here and there about any updates! Thanks for checking it out.

So after a year and a half, I've finally finished my first short film, "Barko." It runs 7 minutes and is about a sad lil circus dog. I worked on it through Titmouse - they ask a couple employees to do their own personal films every year (or two) and give us some time to work during that year, help promote it, etcetc. Thanks to Chris and Shannon of Titmouse and all the great help I got on this from coworkers/friends/interns! And thanks to my man, Josh for dealing with me working all the time! I won't be posting the film online anytime soon since I'll be spending the year applying to festivals and I think Titmouse has other plans for the collection of films we create. But I'll try to keep this blog up to date on what festivals it might get into, posters, and a trailer I'll be making eventually. So you'll get a peak if you haven't seen it yet! Now I'm off to play video games! Weeeeee!!!
