thanksgiving break

...and not a moment too soon!

it's already late tonight, but I couldn't help but spend a little time on transferring the ogre mermaid shot list over to google docs to make it accessible to the crew to update on their own.

looking forward to time devoted to the film over the next few days.

note: google doc shot list updated and ready for updates!

we'll be enjoying a spirited debate over the future of pixar in an upcoming get-together, I am sure.

here's his work:

check it out!

in color.

it's been a constant battle with school behaving like an especially high-maintenance mistress this semester to get any time on ogre these past several weeks, but heck - here are some colored stills, as we inch our way forward!
