Toy Story 3

I got to go to a premiere screening of Toy Story 3 today with a Q&A after by directer Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K Anderson. Writer Michael Arndt was also there. All three signed my Toy Story 3 poster! The film is A-MAZING. The Toy Story trilogy is arguably the best trilogy there is. LOVE IT

What's New!

I finished up in Kavaleer,, on Friday. I had a brilliant time working there, so hopefully there will be more projects I can work on in the future. Everyone there was amazing and I learned tonnes.

Now I have tonnes of free time, so what to do! Well, aside from my long weekend to Kerry for a hol, I will be doing a new business card, sprucing up my blog and doing some more flash projects. I might even try figure out how to do my website. I bought my domain name before Christmas and I still haven't done a thing with it!

Watch this space anyway, because it should be getting shinier over the next few weeks!!

I was asked did I want to work in the states for a while, so obviously I said 'yes please!!' so now my name, and a few other Ballyfermot heads, are mentioned in this online article. Its a really interesting site and worth a look.

Scanners Conspire Against

So I have tried to post my showreel to my blog, but I cant watch any video's, on my blog or anyone elses, so I have no idea if its working (let me know!) and my scanner, which has always been a useless piece of junk, has just died, and I cant even scan onto the product software! Technology is conspiring against me.
