Congrats to Trevor!

As a studio slaved to admiring artists work; we are always telling each other about different people's blogs, watching countless short films and independent productions, gawking at new creative insights... We get so inspired from talents around the world.
So when Trevor Jimenez, one of HoC's own, won an award at TIFF and at the Ottawa Animation Festival for the short film, Keylime Pie, we were ecstatic.
From all of us at House of Cool... CONGRATS Trev... you're doing some amazing stuff! Thanks for inspiring us!

Mipcom 07' - The 15 min. pitch

The dream to entertain the world begins with the 15 minute pitch. Knowing how hard the artists and production crew worked; the long hours, dedication and unified vision that we all want to create cool stuff... it boils down to 15 minutes with a distributor or broadcaster. "We gotta make this count." Mipcom is all about 15 minutes. In an arena where there are thousands of content providers, what is going to make your property stand out? For HoC, it's a unique story scope mixed with distinct characters and environments... but you better believe we practice our pitch to make the most of our 15. If you've got a great idea, you've got to have a great pitch.
Here's some pic's of RC and I in Cannes, France along with a poster of "The Dibble Show."
We can't thank the HoC crew enough for their talent and time.

I was a guest speaker at the ADAPT conference on 2D/3D and visual FX conference a couple of weeks ago. On the panel along with me were Brad Booker from Reel FX, Andrew Jones from Massive Black, David Levy and Jesse (I forgot his last name). While we spoke about concept development we worked on this piece. It's nothing much but I thought I would share it with everyone.
