Guys, I'm pretty happy with the copy of The Making Of book of the short. This is a double page spread after the cover (the cover is the same image of the poster and the DVD cover ;-) ). The book is just 36 pages but, if I knew the print quality would be soooo good, I would have increased the page numbers...
I will post the PDF for you guys to let me know if you like the book or not.

Here's a bit of the Festival's info (hope to see you there - it's free):
FILMS FROM SAN FRAN STUDENTS.
Art Institute of California - Second Annual Animation Festival
San Francisco, California, USA
May 30, 2008
The Art Institute of California -- San Francisco announces the Second Annual Animation Festival, scheduled for Friday, May 30, 2008 from 7-8 p.m. at the Herbst Theater located at 401 Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco, California, USA. This entertaining hour-long program will showcase The Art Institute's best animated works by students, alumni and faculty. The festival is open to the public and there is no charge to attend. Information: www.artinstitutes.edu.
The festival will feature independent student animated productions in a variety of genres, including 2D animation, 3D animation, motion graphics, stop motion animation and mixed media. This year's festival will premiere short films by the first graduating class of the Master of Fine Arts in Computer Animation program. The thesis films include PECK SUPPORT by Aron J. Shay, IS THAT ALL THERE IS? by Cristiano Seixas and MIDNIGHT SNACK by Jacqualine Adelmeyer.
Animated short IS THAT ALL THERE IS? tells the tale of two cockroach buddies who survive a catastrophic explosion. One experiences an existentialist crisis, while the other tries to find a way out of their destroyed world. Seixas moved to San Francisco from Brazil to further his studies in computer animation. In Brazil, he worked for more than 15 years in the animation, graphic design and comic book fields, and also taught visual storytelling at Brazilian universities. He is currently the creative director of Big Jack Studios with offices in Brazil and San Francisco, while simultaneously completing his M.F.A degree in Computer Animation.

This is actually the piece I like the most from the last couple of months. I got this idea from a picture David Charles took from me and my friend Hauck. David called it "zombiefied" and I HAD to do something about it. Then I got my color pastels and did a huge drawing over a black color plus paper.

Hi friends. I'm kind of celebrating the end of my lighting and texturing set up for the first scene. yep, ready or not, here I go. The animation is getting there and I got to move on to all the next shots. So, now I just need to set-up everything right to render my first shot! Hehehe, God knows how long this will take. I will keep you guys posted :-)

This is graphic designer/illustrator Hauck, me and Gumby working hard @ San Francisco's Wonder Con 2008. Three nice days in the Moscone Center. While San Diego Comic Con is crazy and crowded, Wonder Con is smooth and nice to walk around and talk with artists and other professionals from Comic Books/Illustration/Graphic arts field.

For Karin, our Texturing and Lighting instructor, we have to deliver 8 renders that get the closest possible of the final image we want for our shorts. Well, that was a great opportunity to improve on the main shots. I'm pretty happy with what I got on this scene. These are the two renders I like the most so far. I hope I can move to texturing and lighting the other shots really soon.
