Feature Film Gig!


I recently accepted a staff job at Reel FX and I'm super excited! They've worked on some really great and inspiring work and I can't wait to contribute my best to the studio. From the looks of it I'll be animating on Open Season 2. I've really admired the designs that Carter Goodrich sketched up for this movie and it'll be a pleasure getting to give them personality and bring 'em to life. He's definitely an inspiration in my own design work. I mean look at these guys... they're so appealing! :)


I start in December and I already feel welcomed by the people that I've spoken with from RFX. I've heard the environment is great there. I can't wait to get started!

Where's the update? You're probably at work right now! I trust the trip went well and you and Jasmin are snuggled in to your new home.


PS - I saw Surf's Up. It's pretty good I'll admit, but there's others I like more for sure. I thought we got over the "single parent" scenario - cripes man. Cody's brother Gary is probably my favorite character.

Now go watch "Death Proof" and we'll call it even. Seriously.

Dude!@ Huge congrats Dan!! That's awesome!

Dan Segarra said...

Thanks guys!

Work's been incredibly awesome. I started on a very fun run cycle for one of the rabbit characters and now I'm animating a motion test for Boog to test how his fur reacts to his movement.

On top of that the people there are very friendly and open. There's a sense of family and I'm really fortunate to be part of the team.

Hopefully I'll have a chance to post some more updates on my move to Texas and my experience here sometime in the near future.

Thanks again everyone!

How are things going? Just decided to stop by and see if there were any updates. I figure you're super busy.

Hey Kristine!

Yeah, they've been keeping me pretty busy over here, but it's seriously the best place I've worked up to date. :D I'm a little on the slow side so it's taking me a little bit more energy and time to keep up.

Nonetheless, there's no excuse for not updating my blog. They have figure drawing at Reel FX so I'll try and post some of my drawings from there.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
