Re: Jonny Quest complete!

Congrats! I've been watching each episode as they've been completed, and have marveled at the solutions you've devised. The finished product looks even better than I expected... fantastic work! Favorite sequence: not sure... it's all great, but my favs might be the boy running through the jungle, th...

Re: Personal animation project....

Roger, Thanks for the explanation... I'm really impressed with that shot. It's very convincing. It looks like the door was animated by hand. I'm really enjoying seeing your progress and think all the shots look great....... but, can I make a humble suggestion? As good as shot 18 looks, wouldn't it f...

Re: Personal animation project....

Roger, I've been reading all of your behind-the-scenes descriptions, but when I read the one about the running man in the jungle the first time, I missed that the photo that showed the camera able to be rotated on an arc around the set. Could you elaborate on how you handled the exploding door in th...

Re: Personal animation project....

Roger, I just checked out your website for the first time today, and I'm really blown away by the effort and detail. The geek inside me is going crazy watching this stuff! Promise us that you submit the finished product to Cartoon Network. I can't imagine them not using it. It looks amazing! Could y...

I'm really sorry to learn about John's passing. He was a very knowledgable, friendly, generous, and above all.... patient (considering some of the personalities here!) contributor here. I bet he was the same away from a computer, too! My condolances to his family...

Sincerely,

The reason I think that using Walmart is a waste of time (other than the fact that I hate Walmart with a PASSION), is that I would never do anything to jeopardize having my film handled in a professional manner. I want it to go straight to the lab and straight back to me. I shoot much more 35mm stil...

So let me get this straight: You think that Walmart trucks over a load of super8 to Qualex and then Qualex trucks it over to Dwayne's?

Do you realize how inexpensive shipping is for large accounts for corporations such as Kodak? It's not like they are sending them one-by-one in little packets.

"Why? How do you think Wal-Mart gets it to Dwayne's?" Freight trucks. I highly doubt they send it through the regular mail - Wal-Mart has a massive infrastructure that I'm sure you know they will take advantage of. ________________________________________________________ You actually think that a Wa...

"sending it through Wal-Mart is arguably safer than entrusting it to the postal service or (blech) UPS" How can that be true? Your film is being sent out and then sent back to you again without being processed. Then you send it out again, either through Walmart or via USPS. How is this arguably bett...

I refuse to understand why you people would risk getting your film lost just to save a few dollars.

I once listed a set of vintage curtains that I believe sold within a matter of a few minutes. I guess someone had it set as a "favorite search" and they happened to be checking their e-mail :)

Is he attempting to _hide_ that camera?
