I was pleased to find out recently from an article on Indiewire that a movie I worked on five years ago is finally going to be seen here in the States. Netflix has acquired distribution rights to the film Animal Crackers!
Super fun story, character designs by Carter Goodrich, and an amazing cast of John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Ian McKellen, Patrick Warburton, Danny DeVito, Sylvester Stallone, Wallace Shawn (inconceivable!), Raven-Symonè, Gilbert Godfried, and more! Congrats to directors Scott Christian Sava and Tony Bancroft!

Oh, and in case you are wondering, my duties were served as the storyboard revisionist for the movie. As an independent film, they had hired storyboard artists from all over the country who each worked from home. I was the in-house guy working with Tony to help make the boards smooth where needed, and changes on the fly as was desired.
It was great fun not only for the project itself, but we worked out of offices at LA Studios, a voice recording studio in Los Angeles. That meant you never knew from day to day who you might bump into in the halls that had come in to record for any number of movie, TV, or gaming studios’ projects. Might have been the most fun three month gig I ever had!
