London visit

Just got back from three (sunny!) days of exploring the city and visiting studios. We got to meet Eamonn Butler at Double Negative who was a great host and got a quick visit into Framestore as well. Lots of big stuff coming up in London. Special thanks to Kai for putting Hugo and I up and hanging with us and showing us the best Sushi in Soho. Camdon market food rocks. Who said the brits dont eat well?

The final weeks...

My five months in Spain are almost over! I'm down to 2.5 more weeks here at Ilion Animation Studios, and the movie is just about finished in animation. The film is looking great despite the crazy schedule, thanks to some of the talented people working here. Next week I am heading to London to visit a few Studios there, then I return to the States. I will miss Madrid and all my awesome international friends, but hopefully someday I shall return. Here are some of the folks who are working, or pretending to, in the animation dept. As you can see, its quite a cultural mix here at Ilion....

The Stein from Norway

Abraham-ham-ham from Spain

Harmut the wise and witty German

Ramero from Argentina

Andrew the Scott or Brit or Welsh or - whatever

Marco the deadly Italien

Yannick from France

Hugo another crazy German

Wampaa from Hoth

Terry the Irish rover

Pepe and Andrew, helping Harmut, or causing problems?

Dani the laughing Spaniard
