Today marks my 4th Year in Bluesky Studios!!! Who would have thought that 4 years would have passed so quickly. It was like yesterday when I first entered the main doors on the 17th Flr for my interview with our Supervisors Mike and Jim and also the Lead at that time Galen.

And now, Mike has moved on to be  a Co-Director for Ice Age 3(now i can’t go into his directory to check out his awesome animations..sigh), Jim is still a Supervisor here(at least theres still his stuff we can go check out) and Galen has become a Senior Supervisor for Ice Age 3(that means he won’t be animating at all anymore..which sucks for our team). I just want to Congratulate all of them on coming this far and wish them all the best in their new roles as this production moves on.

On another note, it saddens me to have to say goodbye to a couple others who have chosen to move on to other places. Here’s wishing you guys all the best in your next step in work Life!!! You will be dearly missed in Bluesky.

Our Animation team just got together during lunch to go see the newly released KUNGFU PANDA. I think I can say for the rest of the team…AWESOME JOB done by Dreamworks!! We were really blown away not just with Animation but with every aspect of the film. Art/Design,Layout, Camera, F/X, Stroy,etc. They were really great. It felt like every single Dept in their team was doing their part in the film and no one, I mean NO ONE needed to worry about whether the other Dept was doing their “job” and hence they could just focus on their own role in the movie.

GO see it if you Haven’t!!

Congrats Again Dreamworks Team and whoever else worked on it!
