Toy Story Midway Mania Opening!

So I just got back from DisneyWorld for the MidwayMania opening. The trip was a lot of fun, pictures below. I've been working on this project for about a year and a half now, I did character animation for the ride and some Mr PotatoHead animatronic animation as well.

Top Movies of 2007

I'm a little late making this, but here are what I think were the best movies of 2007

1. The Assassination of Jesse James

Amazing cinematography by one of my favorites Roger Deakins and a very solid performance by Casey Affleck

2. No Country For Old Men

Really a beautiful movie, I loved the long sequences of action with no dialog, also a great performance by Tommy Lee Jones and Javier Bardem

3. Ratatouille

Another PIXAR great, I loved how the story took you places you didn't except and as usual the animation was amazing

4. The Lookout

This one flew under the radar, but it was one of my favorites from long time writer Scott Frank. Really great performance from one of my favorite actors Joseph Gordon-Levitt

5. Alpha Dog

I was turned off by this movie initially because of the idea of Justin Timberlake acting, but once I gave it a chance I was happily suprised, Timberlake gave a really great performance as did the entire cast

6. Knocked Up

Really funny movie that actually had some heart in it as well

7. There Will Be Blood

Loved this movie for two reasons, the amazing cinematography and the brilliant performance from long time great Daniel Day-Lewis

8. Superbad

Another well made really funny movie. I am McLovin!

9. Zodiac

Another solid movie from long time great David Fincher. They really captured 70s San Fransisco

10. Transformers

Really fun summer blockbuster. I know the story wasn't perfect, but the visual effects were freakin' amazing!
