While in Portland I had the pleasure of hangin’ out with Jennifer Shiman, the genius behind 30-second Bunnies. Haven’t seen 30-Second Bunnies? Go.
Back from Portland
The Platform Animation Festival was a big success, classy from start to finish. The Sita Sings the Blues work-in-progress screening went exceptionally well. The theater was beautiful, the projection system outstanding, and the audience was exceedingly kind and generous. I sampled some fine films, hung out with old friends and colleagues, and met some very cool people for the first time. And now I must get back to work!
The Paley Center for Media
The original Paley Center for Media has always been located in my apartment. But now the durned Museum of Television and Radio went and used the same name. How will tourists know where to go?
Severe Cuteness Advisory
My pal Ken went to Chicago for a few days, leaving me and Bruno with his adorable kitty-cat Sweetpea. Here are some pictures of them, from initial hissing and growling to shared pigeon-watching. Sweetpea went home this afternoon; we miss her.
