Since Stephen mentioned I would write a follow up post when he posted the “How To Train Your Dragon” trailer, I guess I better.

I just wanted to say how happy I am for “How To Train Your Dragon” to be the first film I worked on.  When I first got to DreamWorks Animation and looked over all of the visual development for this film I was blown away!  The character designs for the humans and dragons looked great and once I saw some of the early human animation tests by the great Simon Otto, Gabe Hordos, Kristof Serrand and Fabio Lignini I knew this would be a film to entertain many.

The film is going very well and I’m excited to see the final cut.  It’s hard to believe how much hard work was done on this film in such a short amount of time.  I know Chris Sanders, Dean DeBlois, Alessandro Carloni, and many others sacrificed a lot of time to make this movie and I’m sure a lot of you will have a great time watching it in theaters!  The visual development, story, layout, effects, lighting, editing, crowds, rigging, and animation departments have done some amazing work on this project.  Definitely not one to be missed!
