As per my previous post, a few weekends ago I was invited to speak in LA at Gallery Nucleus about my role storyboarding on Toy Story 3. Though I was terribly nervous, I think the event and the talk Robert and I prepared went well. I hadn't really done anything like that before, and Robert really stepped up to help get me through it.
For those that couldn't be there, Robert and I spoke about our roles creating the dump sequence at the end of the film, in terms of art and story respectively, and tried to give an in depth overview of the process, start to finish. Tons of fun.
My thanks to those that attended and spoke with us after, you guys made it so amazing for us.
Thanks to Gallery Nucleus for having us and being fantastic hosts.
I swear, every time I visit LA I have the best time. I have to go back soon.
Here are a few photos of the event courtesy of Nucleus. (link)

thanks so much for the great talk. its nice to hear about your process, but its even more inspiring listening in about your journey becoming a story artist. its nice knowing someone else changed their mind about being an animator and became inspired to move into story. i feel like im following a similar path. thanks agains!

Living in MN and having an empty travel budget, I wasn't able to make your talk. But I did order a signed copy of "The Art of Toy Story 3" which just arrived - thanks to you and Robert! The book is beautiful! Can't wait to see what's next from you guys!
