Good luck out there, Mr. Torres!

Blue Sky's good friend and long-timer, Dave Torres, has left our humble halls and will be animation supervising on an unnamed PDI project. He will be missed....all you PDI'ers out there are gaining a valuable artist and a great friend. Good luck out there, Torres...we're all WAY excited for you (obviously)!

Wall-E was amazing, Pixar!

I gotta say, I like movies...period. But I love really good movies. And on top of that, I love Pixar movies. It's always been one of those studios that is geared towards the artists. Where they think of the art and not box office numbers...and judging from what my friends say who work there, that's exactly the type of studio it is. So with that in mind, how can you not like movies that come from a studio where the passion for film making is obviously still going strong.

So Blue Sky treated us to a screening of Wall-E this past Friday and am happy to say (though I'm not surprised) that it's my favorite Pixar movie yet. Right after The Incredibles. So, in summation, way to go Pixar and all your artists, Wall-E blew me away. Not only was the story great, but the acting was top notch.

Anyhow, if you haven't seen it yet, go see it.
