Over the past year we’ve learned volumes about the current state of distribution and the challenges presented to today’s aspiring filmmakers. Working with Erica Gorochow, we created a video to summarize these ideas and help shed light on what the future holds for filmmakers.
Watch it with your eyes, spread the word by sharing with your friends and filmmakers, and let’s work together to change the path of film as we know it.
I’m so proud of being even just a small part of VHX's success.

As of the time of this post, there are 24-hours left on Michel Gagné's Kickstarter campaign for “The Saga of Rex.” By the time you read this, the deadline might just be a couple hours away, or the campaign might be already over. If he raises another $7,000 in the next 24-hours he will have reached his final stretch goal for the project. Michel is trying to make a 4-minute short film from his beautiful graphic novel “The Saga Of Rex" If he gets to $60,000 he’ll be able to do another 30-second of animation and also create a two minute trailer for a feature film version of Rex. A feature film version that I would desperately love to see!
Michel is a legendary artist and animator who has worked on An American Tail, The Land Before Time, The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, and Ratatouille. He also created the BAFTA Award Winning videogame Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. I’m really just scratching the surface of his amazing career.
To give you a sense of the quality of animation in Rex, here’s a clip that Michel has already finished, and if you’re like me you’re going to fall in love with Rex immediately.
If you’re a fan of animation or art or beautiful things, I strongly suggest that you chip in for Michel’s campaign. The short film is going to be beautiful, and Michel is going to document the whole filmmaking process on a secret production blog. Imagine the things you can learn about animation and filmmaking from watching the process of a master animator creating a new film.
If you missed it the first time, here’s the link to Michel’s Kickstarter campaign.
Unbelievably cool use of animated gifs.

Amazing amazing amazing! One of my favorite things about the Internet is when it allows incredible works like this to be uncovered and shared.
