American Dog... Good Boy! Good Boy!
That report I mentioned a last week about "American Dog" getting screened by the Big Wigs of WDAS and PAS seems to have gone well. Over at the TAG blog, the animation guild's blog they're reporting:
"At Disney Feature Animation, the American Dog story reels -- unspooled in Burbank and Emeryville, met with the Brain Trusts favor. "The whole picture was up on reels, and the notes were pretty positive," a story artist told me. "The crew worked lots of o.t. getting things up in a few months, and they're pretty satisfied. They know they've got lots of work ahead, but the showings went well."
Work is progressing on various scenes being polished and the aim is a Fall 2008 release. I'll be glad when we see a trailer for this one, being as THIS is really the first "post-Pixar" film and will have the influence of Uncle Lasseter's guiding hand. Plus, I'm really curious about what the new designs look like. Based on what I've had described to me they look nothing like Chris Sander's work and I really want to see what Lasseter and Williams' "American Dog" will look like. What are your thoughts?
