JOY


Are you as excited as I am for PIXAR to arrive in VANCOUVER! Well, Im pretty gosh-darn-tootin' excited. Where are my guns? I need to fire them in the air!

Thought I would change up the wall post on this blog so we can make the transition to non-job posts.

Quick note

As you've probably noticed, activity here has kind of dropped off. This is because I'm sending more important updates via e-mail now that this is a real job.

CHECK YOUR E-MAILS LIKE TWICE A DAY AND REPLY ALL TO EVERYTHING UNTIL WE GET AN ACTUAL ONLINE HUB GOING.

In other news, I forgot to bring it up again at the meeting tonight, but David, keep researching online Moodle-type places (maybe we can use Moodle?!) for us to secretly gather at from now on and send a link out immediately so we can get the schedule and news up. Something where only we can read and post things. A forum, maybe? :S

It's bus-iness... It's busi-ness TIME

Dear everyone,

Chelsea and I put together a newer rough version of the draft yesterday and submitted it to Ruth Vincent (a professional in the animation field who said she would go over it.) I got a quick reply from her saying that we should ask for as much money to start up as we can, and if the 'max' was 5000, then we're on target, Chelsea!

TASKS?

David- Update this blog with a link to a wiki or a Ning or something we can post everything on. I think we should get more of a file-sharing and community thing going rather than the blog. (Not that the blog's bad, it just won't be as appropriate anymore, in my opinion. Agree? Disagree?)

Sterling- Draw a 'good' picture of Sam. No shading or anything necessary, just proper character sheets that will reflect his final look.

Chelsea- Look into production schedules on the Animation World Network to go over with me?

Carmen- Think of all the production tasks that we'll need to deal with? Think about your scene, maybe? If they decide to keep the different styles cut, then your 3D might already be in the bag, provided with a couple of touch ups if you want.

---IMPORTANT STUFF---

Meetings:

Collaborating with John's group. Since we're both probably going to work at the school, John's group and ours will be able to pool some of our money for shared resources. For example, insurance, software, and a supervisor. We are meeting on Sunday at 4pm to discuss this at his home near 4th. If you're free, please come.

There is a pitch on Monday at the BPCPA office from 1pm to 1:30pm. If you're not busy, make it a point to come; the clients will want to meet you.

Notes:

During the pitch on Monday, I'm going to present our final PSA for Darren's class. They are currently unaware that we have animated it in different styles. If they like it, awesome. If they don't, we'll have to adjust our production schedule, budget, and responsibilities. I'll update this with more info on Monday and will upload the info from this Monday's meeting as soon as I get home to scan them. If I think of anything else, I'll make an edit, and if you have any questions or suggestions or WHATEVS please post them, or phone me, or etc. etc. etc.

TEAMWORK

SEXY TABLETSSSS

Hey guys, so I decided to check out what the prices were with the new intuos 4s. I'm specifically looking at the medium ones right now (6 x 9) and Futureshop has them listed for $549.99 CND and I'm guessing that's how they'll be priced at most commercial locations.

So, I talked to the guy from Memory Express in Calgary and we can get the medium intuos 4s through special order for $469.99 CND, but the price depends on the economy cause they'll change the price in accordance to CND versus the USD.

Hit me back with what you guys think? Cause we'll have to put in an order as soon as we can so that I can pick them up and bring them back in the next few weeks??
