I'll be finishing up my demo reel today, so keep an eye out! It will most likely need a bit more polishing, but the general idea will be there!


I know not that many people read this, but I feel it is very important that everyone is aware of the National Bone Marrow Registry Program.

Cartoon Brew recently posted a story (view it here: http://www.cartoonbrew.com/animators/help-pres-romanillos.html) about animator Pres Romanillos. Pres is an animation great, his work has included being Supervising Animator on Shan-Yu from Mulan (along with several other characters), an animator on Madagascar, Shrek 2, Pochahontas, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and most recently an Animator of Prince Naveen from The Princess and the Frog. He has been waiting for a bone marrow transplant to battle his recent relapse of leukemia, and has inspired a live art auction in L.A. and online at Pres-Aid.com by fellow industry friends.

After reading this article I discovered the National Marrow Donor Program, where you can join their registry and save the life of someone like Pres. I had always heard of a marrow donor list, but had never really pursued checking it out. I've registered online and am waiting for their response. I just wanted to share this information with anyone out there who never really taken this kind of thing into consideration! Just think, you can save a life! For real! Not just some $20 donation to charity (not that those aren't important!) You can check out the National Marrow Donor Program at: http://www.marrow.org/. Shaquille O'Neal is even in on it!

And finally,

How to Train Your Dragon


Loved it
