After 8 months in London and 18 of the past 24 months abroad, I have returned to the US. My time at DNEG was sweet and working on Paul and Iron Man taught me a lot. But I missed the fun cartoony animation and the allure of Blue Sky's 'RIO' was too much to bare. I will be helping them finish this fabulous film for the next 3 months. But I got a last trip in before leaving, visiting Edinburgh for the Stag of my good Irish animator friend Terry O' Reilly.
