Fondue

Friday, February 5th, 1999

Ok, so I did it. I went and had some Fondue last night. Two of our own NEW TIPPETT people took me on an escapade in berkeley and of all the great places to eat……we had Fondue. I don’t know how to spell Fondue but this sounds right. Anyway, it was real nice. Ummm I don’t want to embarrass these people by telling you who would think of eating fondue on a thursday, but ok it was Sandy, the weird girl who works in the Art dept., and Alex… Alexisha…oh I can’t spell it, but she is the new weird coordinator girl. Anyway, they are both nice and it was fun. But back to the story. During some cheesy dinner stuff we got on the subject of work, of coarse. And we were talking about what made Tippett different from those other studios. And ok every dept. is great and Joel does a great job, and everyone is great, blah, blah, blah. ( Oh, if you people haven’t seen Hv7 and its wrinkles that Joel and his new side kick have done I’d haul your hiney over to a DDr and have a look.) But anyway, One thing that separates us from all other studios is that our TD’s and our Compers Kick some serious ass. Us animators, we wreck the shots and the TD’s and Compers save our ass every time. And if you don’t know what I’m talking about watch Men In Black, and you will notice that all of the cg ( thats computer graphics ) look like color forms placed on a background plate compared to us. So I figured it was time that somebody gave a little rah, rah to those poor bastards in bay2,3,and 4 and god help them on the Haunting. And oh yah, Mikes match moves are good too.
