Richard Williams visits Bluesky Studios

I know.. it’s been a long time since I updated the blog.. been really busy with Layla and her Blog ha ha!! Anyways alot has happened since the last time I wrote the last post…

First off…. Dave Torres one of our Lead Animator, has left for PDI in San Francisco. Another great loss for us here in Bluesky. Jason Martinsen and Antonin Plante have also left to take time to do some travelling. All the best to you guys!! You will be missed. (Antonin this lines for yah)!!

We have since hired about 4-6 new fulltime animators and about 13-20 temp animators to help out for Ice Age 3. Phew.. so many new faces!!

Also Bluesky has had some pretty cool guest speakers … namely Sergio Pablos (Awesome 2D Animator and Chracter Designer), Mike Kunkle ( another kickass animator) and finally Richard Williams ( need I say more.. a legend).

Here’s a photo of the current Animation team including our Technical Assistants and our Directors, Carlos and Mike with Richard Williams.(courtesy of Tom Saville)
