How to Train Your Dragon

I've been pretty busy at work lately, so I've missed my monthly post. I hope to get back to doing it soon.

It was about a year ago this month that I was in the thick of it, working with Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois on their early version of "How to Train Your Dragon".

It was a fun, challenging, and exciting project to be on.

The film has changed and grown a lot since then, and I'm really excited with how well the film has shaped up since I wrapped from the project. I've been pretty fortunate to have worked with some great Writer/Directors, Heads of Story, Story Crews, and Production Teams so far during my time in the feature animation world, and working on this project was no exception.

The film doesn't come out until March 26th 2010, so I'll post more about it in the spring of next year.

Here's a link to a page on the Trailer Addict website which has the latest preview trailer for the film:

There's also an interesting discussion thread about the film at one of my old internet haunting grounds here:

Check out what fellow DreamWorks Story Artist and Animator extraordinaire Rodolphe Guenoden AKA RodGuen has to say about the film there.
