New job

It has been a while since my last post but things have been a little bit crazy lately. I got a new job!. Well in fact I got my American visa approved which means that I my job offer is now for real :). If nothing happens I would be joining Pixar as Lighting TD next June. A few weeks ago I left my previous job at Animal Logic in Sydney and me and my wife have been travelling around New Zealand and Hong Kong. I will try to update my flicker account with some cool photos I have been taking during the trip as soon as possible.

We are back in Spain during a few weeks and after that we will be moving to San Francisco.

Getting to work at Pixar is a dream come true and although I am quite excited about the idea I am a little bit cautious trying not be overexcited. I have been working in the CG industry for the last 14 years and ironically as I was getting better jobs my creativity and responsibilities were, everytime, knocked down a little bit.  I have the feeling that working at Pixar could be quite disappointing creatively wise having about 1000 employees so I guess that you  kind of become a serial number inside of a animated movie factory :P. By the time that the shot gets to you everything has been already sorted out so I have the feeling your contribution is something more related to execution rather than creation. The good thing about getting to work at Pixar is called Pixar University where you can attend to workshops and conferences given by Pixar employees at any discipline and that´s the part that is keeping me really excited. Having the opportunity to learn from the very best people in the industry is priceless hence I will try to soak up as much information as possible.

On the other hand and although I still don´t know which project I will be working on, it  is quite likely that I´ll be working in Cars2, with Sharon Callahan as DP. For those who don´t know about Sharon she has been Pixar´s Director of Photography for films such as Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Ratatuille. I am looking forward to sittting down in dailies just to hear about her comments on any shot which will be an invaluable help training my eye for sure

I have the feelling of getting back to school so that´s the real deal!

We will see how everything turns out...:)
