GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS - FRI...





George Barris' office




We started our day with a trip to see George Barris' workshop. The shop was closed but Andrew snuck us in the back door to check out some of George's sweet custom cars.


Later we met up with Steve Lambe and Gabe Swarr for lunch and talked about the state of the industry over pad thai and beer. Basically we just tried to teach them a little bit about how animation works - you can tell from this picture that they were very impressed with our knowledge.



Steve brought us back to Nickelodeon and gave us a tour of the joint. Man they sure are doing it right over there. We got to see where they're making El Tigre and met some of the talented crew putting it all together.


Although we really enjoyed the tour, we still had to show Steve who was boss.


Mark, Paul and I met up with Eric Homan at the Frederator Studios for a little business meeting. There is so much about this studios that we at Neptoon appreciate and we're looking for ways that we can work together.

Eric gave us a great tour and we ran into Melissa Wolfe who we had met at last years OIAF.
Wally Wingert and his dog Sassy










We ended our day at Wally Wingert's and he gave us a tour of his totally rad pad (AKA - WALLY WORLD). Wally is a very interesting guy but wow, can you believe this dude actually lives here!
