Ridin' the Train

Tomorrow I start a new job at the Henson Co in Hollywood. It's as picture editor on a new children's series called "Dinosaur Train" to be aired on PBS starting next summer.

This will be the first TV show I've cut picture on, so I'm looking forward to the challenge and learning curve. Basically, my sound work stuff has been few and far between lately, so when this opportunity came up, I was happy to get it.

I will start off the job by creating animatics from the storyboards the artists create, then send those to the animators. Three months or so later, the animation will be ready for final editing.

I will continue to do sound work in the future for sure, but I have been wanting to hone my picture editing skills, and what better way than to get on a show doing it?

I'll post some artwork from the show as soon as I get my hands on some.
