A lot of the Animation Crew from "9" moved on to work on this film. Later I was fortunate enough to have had a lot of them join me on "The Nut Job" movie as well. They really are an entertaining talented bunch of people. This was one of the sequences I supervised. I did this scene as well.

9 is an interesting film. It's quite a different step away from the animated feature films produced in North America. I respect the director Shane Acker for attempting to try something different. I supervised this sequence and this particular shot is one of the longest I have worked on in my career.
Mike Smith and George Evelyn from Colossal Pictures directed this advertisement back in 1998 which was to promote the BlockBuster Holiday GiftCards. I drew all the backgrounds which were painted (non digital) later by Clive Powsey. Chuck Gammage and I did all the character animation and Raymond Pang did the F/X animation.
