I'm still busy working away on my short. Progress has it's fits and starts and if it wasn't for the contributions of a few very talented people I wouldn't be as far along as I am. Here's a shout out to all those who've been working with me during the past year and a bit.

Adam Cable: Versatility is this man's middle name. An awesome artist who's great concept and storyboarding work helped get the short up and running.

Mike Peredo: A great friend who's contributed in ways he doesn't know I value. Thank you for all the times you've calmed me down and helped put out those fires when I had no one else to turn to!

Maykol Choqque: I feel very fortunate indeed to have him working on one of our rigs. A very talented Character Animator and Character TD.

Devan Mussato: Another big contributor to the short, Devan created our pig rigs.

Alex Liki: A very talented artist who's been contributing to our Character lineup.

Heather McNabb: A wonderful Animator who's also been exercising her drawing skills on our storyboards and design work.

Alicia Kroeker: She's had a major hand in putting together our layout who has since moved on to Bardel. I wish her the very best.

Mike Erskine-Kellie: A mad Writer genius, who's input has helped prop up my spirits when my enthusiasm waned. (Working on a short for almost a year can be very trying at times indeed!)

Mark Holmes: For the invaluable critique when I really needed it.

Joyce Moller: For your spiritual and financial support.

Andy Asperin and Louie Hinayo: I can't say enough good things about these guys. They are two of the best guys I've ever worked with and although they haven't animated on this particular short, they did animate my previous short film and are a huge part of my wanting to continue down this road. Hopefully I will get another chance to work with them again.

Thanks to all! Onward.......
