. video blog numero quatre .

I made this video blog during my last week in San Francisco. I feel so thankful to have met such wonderful and talented people during those 6 years.

I'm going to miss my friends terribly, but it's time to move on, and hopefully build other wonderful memories.

New York, here I come.

. the king, has returned (in 3-D) .

I was 9 years old when I decided I wanted to be part of animated movies. It was a couple of seconds after Circle of Life.

The Lion King was the only video cassette I had in English, so when I watched it again on the big screen this week, I got major nerd goosebumps on every single song!

Hakuna Matata!

. my pixar animation reels .

I just finished my animation interniship at Pixar. I learned so much during my stay in this amazing studio. Here are the shots I did.


. the shining .

 I started to draw as fast as I can every shot of The Shining. I was really impressed by the sets and composition choices Kubrick used.

I'm not done yet but I thought I'd share the first page.

. quotes .

I watched Molière recommended by Carlos Banea and picked up a couple of interesting quotes about acting. I think they work pretty well for animation too:

L'enemi c'est le doute
Doubt is the enemy

C'est un metier du sentir, et non pas de l'apparence
Acting (animation) is a job of feeling and not appearance.
