Probably not the content you were hoping to see here (I'm working on it, I swear!) but here are some noteables:

Cars Toons are now showing on Disney's web site. If you've had trouble finding them on TV (they don't make it easy) then this is probably the best quality way to see them until they're out on DVD or whatever. I haven't been able to get this page to work in Firefox, but it works fine in Safari and, I assume, Explorer. Your mileage may vary. Did you see what I did there? Mileage... Cars... Ahem.

In other news, the Annie Awards are at the end of this month, but in the meantime I've received another nomination for my work on WALL-E! This time it's a Visual Effects Society nomination for "Outstanding Animated Character in an Animated Motion Picture". The team chosen to represent the character of WALL-E includes Sound Designer Ben Burtt, Modeler Austin Lee, Designer Jay Shuster, and myself for animation. We're up against Bolt, Rhino, and Po. The competition is strong, but I think we've got a pretty good shot at this one. You can see a full list of the nominations here.


  1. nice way to go with the annie! The Cars Toon's are awesome :D. I think that the carburetor canyon gag was by far my favorite :). excellent timing with the whole bit, got me laughing pretty good :D

    Best of luck

  2. oh yeah and I got them working fine in Firefox (version 3.0.5)(on my mac)

  3. Ow! not available in Canada

  4. Wow great and congrats! Can't wait to see what scenes you worked on. I think I have a pretty good idea:)

    Obama 4ever....or at least 8 years,


  5. Awesome news, good luck!

    I was able to get the shorts to play in firefox also. But it takes longer to load the page.


  6. Thanks for posting a link to your work! I'm collecting as much information as I can for some Japanese reporters who would like to ask you a few questions at the Annies. Do you have list of your Wal-E shots? I'll try to pass on as much information as possible. Look forward to seeing you at the Annies!

  7. Congrats on the Annie nominations!

  8. Jeremy, I just posted my reel, and you can find a written breakdown here:
