My work on Hotel Transylvania 3 wrapped up a few weeks back and I’ve since joined the team at Method Studios for a feature that’s yet to be announced.
I figure it a good time to briefly go over a part of the industry that may be not be so talked about in schools.

So I animated a couple of the army men shots on Toy Story and it was very difficult. But the great thing about the experience was that in the room right next door was the story department. That was the very first time I saw people actually drawing and creating story at a studio. Even at The Simpsons, they have a script first and then the storyboard artists (like most TV shows) just go directly from the script to drawing the storyboards.

Luckily, they actually like each other, but then Victor accidentally marries the deceased Emily who takes him to a world underground, while Victoria is forced to marry the evil lord Barkis… ‘Corpse Bride’ is a typical Tim Burton film, especially in its art direction, in its 19th century, gothic setting, in its dark humor, and in its jolly portrait of death. Because the film is also a Danny Elfman-penned musical, it feels like a successor to ‘The Nightmare before Christmas’ (1993).
