We started the morning off with a nice walk on Venice beach from our hotel to the pier. The weather in LA is nice and warm, which is to be expected. Pretty desert like in the middle of the day, but we walked early in the morning so it was quite nice.
We were back at Kenny's place today filming great stuff. He's one super talented animator and has tons of passion for the art and craft. His studio is really cool and quaint. I'm proud to see him going for it on his own and making it happen. I was happy to hear that his teaching at Animation Mentor really helped give him the confidence to "go for it" and make it happen. I wish him the very best as he's a great guy with a lot of amazing ideas!
It was a fun day overall with lots of great new material. I wrapped up the afternoon by having a drink with Pepe Valencia from Sony. Great guy and one of our super story mentors. He's so passionate about animation and really cares very much. It was great bouncing ideas off each other and picking his brain for awesome ways to continue to improve AM. Great stuff!
We're now in Pasadena for the remainder of the trip (through the weekend) and just settled in to our new hotel. Now, I'm off to bed.
