Tak and the Power of Juju

Hey everybody,

Tak Premieres this Friday on Nickelodeon. This is the project I've been working on for the past 1.5 years. Its cost me (or gave, depending on my mood) two tips to Hyderabad, India. Hyderabad has had two bombings while our people have been there. Fun.

I was Supervising Animator on one of the 11 minutes cartoons, The Woodifest. The supervising animators on this show are responsible for making sure the show is do-able during the script/board stage, and after the animatic is locked we guide the show to completion. This is really wrestling the animation from India into submission using a lot of notes and drawovers.

I'll post some of these drawovers later.

Barack Obama

Normally I avoid posting anything related to politics here. But this is pointing out a weird irony rather than political commentary. It has nothing to do with Barack.

Barack Obama gave a speach at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars recently.

Ole Woodrow pubicly ripped Teddy Roosevelt for being the first president to have a black man visit the whitehouse. Only he did not say black man.


PS I know I'm applying today's stardards to our forefathers.
