Toon Talk at Raleigh Studios

We just got back from an amazing workshop sponsored by our friends over at ScreenPlay Lab. The Director of Animation for Nickelodeon, Peter Gal, spoke on the "Do's and Dont's of Pitching for TV Animation." Very informative and enjoyable. There were a few pitch hits and misses but Peter was very repectful of everyone's ideas and input. We even got to hand him an ABA postcard and chat a little about the project. Far Out!

Wearing Hard Hats

The saga continues. A little good news came our way recently. Adopted by Aliens and our short film, Ravishing Raspberry, will both be screening next month at two separate events.

Adopted by Aliens episodes 1-3 will screen at "Kids Day," sponsored by the Santa Barbara African Heritage Film Series, Saturday, February 25th. Ravishing Raspberry is off to Philadelphia to be featured in Phresh: A Celebration of Women in Hip Hop, Saturday, February 11th. We're even considering making an appearance in Philly--it's a long shot but it could happen [Crossing fingers].

Back to work!

Another year; another episode

Shawnelle and our friend, Shatae, during our vacation back home to the Bay Area.

2005 has breezed by and it's obvious--since we're only a few hours away from Friday--that 2006 plans on doing the same thing. With our New Years resolutions dancing in our heads, Shawnelle and I are preparing to grab our goals by the horn and seriously make some things happen.

We've had a year to adjust to Los Angeles; the good weather, the horrible traffic, the fact that everyone and their grandmother has a screenplay in the works... :p.

Ah, but such is life in sunny Southern Cali. I'm certainly not complaining!

Here's to a ridiculously succesful 2006! (Positive thinking, people, positive thinking.)
