So i've been getting the name out. been contacted by and contacting the outside world. Had an interview at PLF for pre-viz which turned out to be different than i thought. Animation pre-viz is more VizDev. the stuff gets thrown away. Layout is Pre-viz in that we are creating the movie before it is created, if that makes sense. Pre-Viz outside of animation is pre-conceptualizing a live-action movie that will determine where the camera, lights, tracks, equipment AND the actors will go within a predefined space. this sounds like the director and the cinematographer don't have any real vision unless they see it front of them first. they can use me even though they'd need more technical prowess from their artist. lots of hats in order to perform for the director. they said they can still use my composition skills and use of film language. the rest is just programs.
Got interviews next week at IMAGI and Omation on the same day so i can kill two birds with one stone. and i got a tip that Disney may be revving up Rapunzel Unbraided again. got to check into that one. Pixar is not hiring for the immediate future. maybe next year. maybe. never heard back from Crest. Sony's full. sigh. life in the big city.
Auditioned for scratch track on Dragons and chatted with Phil about stereoscopic filmmaking and the challenges of 3D development. anything to stick my foot in the door. Greg thinks i'm an idiot. they don't owe me anything and I them. still, i'd rather stay put. Going to see Ocean's 13 and Surf's Up tomorrow. Gotta check in with the Caponegri's and tell Felicia that she was great.
