Finish Line

Sorry I haven't been around to update for a while, but as you can imagine, Finishing The Patsy Pals has been top priority. I just finished this past weekend, and man...let me tell you, I have a new found respect and appreciation for anyone who's ever attempted to make an independent short film...and when i say independent, I mean entirely on your own.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I haven't had many people watch the finished product yet. That will be the true test. My goal with this cartoon was to entertain. So if I can get a smile or a chuckle out of you, I'll let out a sigh of relief and know I've done my job.

The second I was done this film I had to pack up and move 4 years worth of accumulated crap out of my apartment. I'm now back at home with mammy and daddy. 4 years of college behind me.

The job hunt begins.

Industry day is on Thursday at the school, so that should start the job hunt off nicely.
Anyways, I've posted just a few screen shots. Once I get settled, I'll write up a nice retrospective and post my film for you webber net dwellers to enjoy.

God bless cartoon violence...

What legitimizes a cartoon in today's capitalist society you ask?!?! Pfff...TOYS of course!
(PS. This statement is meant to be tongue in cheek. I'm not really a fat cat, I swear.)

I've collaborated with the incredibly talented Anthony Hrymakowski to bring you Patsy Pals Toys!
He's an amazing sculptor and all around artist who's got a real knack for translating relatively flat and designy cartoon characters into 3 dimensions while maintaining their appeal.
Check out his work by clicking his name above or on my buddies list.

Along with the release of the film, you'll be able to have your very own Patsy Pal to inflict cartoon violence on! Drop an anvil on him, blow him up, or just keep him on display on your desk...any one of those is acceptable.
The image above is just a teaser of what's on the way.

Also! I'm losing my mind putting upwards of 12 hours a day to make this film the very best it can be...and guess what?
10 more days til it's done.
I'm overwhelmed with a sense of excitement and panic after saying that.

See ya in 10 days!
