    I made the silver screen! (barely)

    Recently I was awarded the opportunity to create some 3D animation for a film. It's a couple of animations for two of the production companies that are making the movie. You know, the gazillion logos that are playing while you're still standing in line paying for the $10 bag of popcorn. The film stars Peter O'Toole and Marsha Gay Harden so it's kind of a big deal. (Funny I don't know the title yet) I will also get to write the music for each of these logos. They may or may not use the music depending upon the opening and how it is scored (who knows I may be competing against Hans for some air time )

    Do I get royalties for this music? Should I ask for points on the back end? A limo full of hot chicks? A villa in the south of France where my new pal George Clooney and I will hang out talking about what a hack Howard Shore is? Or how about 3 stale dorritos and a kick in the pants?

    Anyway, kind of a proud moment for this has been trying to be a never-was!

    Tinsel town look out, I'm coming at ya like a cxannibal on a slim fast diet!

    Congratulations.

    I would guess the movie is titled "The Christmas Cottage", after comparing the imdb profiles of both actors

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001315/
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000564/

    There is even a listing about the movie

    Whew, when you wrote "bearely" I thought you were going topless!

    Do I get royalties for this music? Should I ask for points on the back end? A limo full of hot chicks? A villa in the south of France where my new pal George Clooney and I will hang out talking about what a hack Howard Shore is? Or how about 3 stale dorritos and a kick in the pants?
    Take 'em all dang it!

    Congratulations!

    Thanks so much guys for the kind words! It will be cool to sit in a theater and see the logos. It's not major when you compare it to the special effects some cats are doing but it is a nice opportuinty and the people have been great to work with!

    All the very best,
