Making Of The Reward
The talent in this studio is simply stunning. It is very comforting to see how many artists that use to work in big studios, split off, and make their own amazing work, in a more human sized environment, free of producers and distributors that invariably dumb down the product. The rule should be: "If u r not an artist, you should not have any kind of input"...

Working at Sony Imageworks
Now is time to move and a new adventure will start.
The 7th of January I will start working at Sony Imageworks at the new film Smurf 2.
There are many reasons that really make me happy to join Imageworks: The quality of work that they have been producing in the past years is absolutely stellar. The project is quite electrifying because I grew up watching the Smurfs cartoons and to think that I might now be animating and be Papa Smurfs really makes my inner child jump with joy and, I am also quite excited about the move, because most of my dear animator friends are currently working in that area and I can not wait to catch up with them.
So, if I will not update with the lates videos is because I will be UBERfocused on work!
I wish everybody great holidays and I wish myself good luck for the next project!!!
