Hello? Anybody home??

Filed under: Blue Sky — Mike @ 12:10 am

Man it’s been quiet around here. 

Well, I’ve got a pretty good excuse – I swear. Other than being completely addicted to spending time with my one year old daughter and just being completely baffled at how quickly kids develop, I’ve been pretty all-consumed with getting through the rush phase of pre-production on Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. We’re still in the middle of it with about one solid month of pure insanity left for my design team, but I wanted to come up for air and say hi to anyone who still checks this blog occasionally. 

This particular Ice Age has just hit a major milestone in that our first official trailer has just been released on Apple’s website, and – Yay!!! – it is a classic Scrat trailer. I won’t spoil anything, but you can see it here…

We still have months of work to go to get the film finished, but the movie’s coming along nicely and I’m really excited for it. I think audiences will have a lot of fun with this one. For me, the design process of a film is the most grueling (it’s kind of like drawing, algebra, sprinting, and chinese finger traps all mixed into one), and as that phase nears its end I hope to update the site more often and get back to my own personal artwork as well! Provided I have any energy left, that is.

Oh well, that’s enough run-on sentences for one night. Until next time!

  1. hey Mike,

    You’ve got a great excuse! The trailer is awesome, and I am sure the movie is going to be great. I’m also pretty excited you’re posting again. Good luck over the next few months. Can’t wait to see more of your personal work.

  5. Adam – Thanks man! Good to hear from you. Hope all’s well.

    Dave – When Chloe sees Sid, she says “Bay-beeeeee!” Not sure what’s going on there… Sid would be one hideous baby.

    Gulzar – Thanks! I hope to before long!

    Gerald – Will do! Give Lisa and Sophie big hugs and kisses from us!
