Cry Night

I think I already mentioned this in a past blog, but you should see Snow Angels. I cried when I first saw it back in April at AFI Dallas. Jess and I watched it again tonight and man, I cried again. After it was over, we talked about it and I cried again. So did Jess. Cry night. Man.

It is easily one of the most moving films I've ever seen. By moving, I don't mean warm, fuzzy feelings. I mean, beautiful, tragic, delicate, crushing, ugh. Let the fact that I'm typing this way signify what I mean.

David Gordon Green directed the film. If you ever feel hardened like you can't cry, check out some of his films.

Super Punch

This is me super punching at the beach in Gloucester, MA last week.

Hey, Jess and I are going to LA in a few weeks for the Nicktoons Network Animation Festival Creator Night. If Kid Show won anything, they'll announce it that night, so it sounds like a lot of fun. Plus our plane tickets were super cheap, because of Virgin America.

Oh No Spider

I found this huge spider in our stairwell the other day. It scared the crap out of me, but I had to capture it and take photos.

Jess and I just got back from a weeks visit to Boston to visit family and such. It was pleasant, although we both were sick the whole time. I saw No Country For Old Men for the first time. Wow. It was so original... it sucks you in and you want it to keep going forever.

Good news:

- Kid Show will screen on Nickelodeon's "Nicktoons" channel October 12th. I'll give more details later, but it's for the Nicktoons Network Animation Festival, so that's exciting!

- Earl Boone Is Alive is part of Slamdance's Anarchy Short Film Competition for the month of September, so go watch it and vote for it! (requires registration at their site)Click here to see what it's competing against and click here for a direct link to my film.

-Kid Show is also going to screen at the Austin Film Festival in mid October. Not sure if I'm attending yet.

The Cat

I made a quicky animation today. It's called The Cat Part 1. I need to do more of this.

Jess and I are going to Boston on Tuesday for 6 days. That'll be nice.

I'm quite tired.
