Gift from my awesome brother. Weirdest mug ever: pour tea in the top, put scone in the mouth. Creep the entire family out.

If you thought "Scary Mary" or "Shine" were good trailer re-cuts... check out Shark Song, set on beautiful Amity Island...

Next 5 boards! Who's up for one?
We're having our newest group of story trainees at the studio do these as an exercise, so i did one this morning as an example, using this photo:

Hey guys, let's do a Next Five!

Here's your starting frame. Imagine this is a movie on pause. What are the next five shots that come after it?

Here's some inspiring thoughts from David Mamet, from his book "On Directing Film":
"People say, 'I'm standing on the corner. It's a foggy day. A bunch of people are running around crazy. Might have been the full moon. All of a sudden, a car comes up and the guy next to me says...'
If you think about it, that's a shot list: 1) the guy standing on the corner; 2) shot of fog; 3) a full moon shining above; 4) a man says, "I think people get wacky this time of year,"; 5) a car approaching.
This is good filmmaking, to juxtapose images. Now you're following the story.

You can buy his book from Amazon, or look for it in your local bookshop: http://amzn.to/v9Hs9r

Post your next five when you do 'em - I'll post mine tomorrow!

Really great two part interview with Brenda Chapman, creator of Brave. I was lucky to work on her movie for more than three years.

I did some work on this little guy from John Carter probably 4 years ago. It was a fun change to take a break from storyboarding and draw alien animals with Derek Thompson and Iain & Mishi McCaig.

Also interesting to see how he ended up!
