Hootch Truck







On our last houseboat trip last April in Tennessee we tied up in a cove to protect ourselves from high winds. Little did we know that 4 tornados touched down in the local area and 40 people died in a neighboring county.

This picture was taken early in the morning before the storm hit. A short hike up the hill from where the boat was tied up we discovered this find, an abandoned moonshine distillery. As you can see in the bed of this old Chevy is the brewing tank. The tank was tipped over after someone hacked it up with an axe. Beautiful find!

Final Trans-Am Build

Well it's finally in, the final build for Billy & Elvis's ride-the flying Trans-Am. I'd like to thank my buds John Aquino for the awesome 3-D build and Tim Pixton for the kick-ass vector look! Well now I have total control how the car will animate in flash, that way we can keep the character and the car animation looking pretty seemless in timing and feel. The car has complete turns from every angle and all you have to do is call out the instance and your set. Just add an lil' stretch and squash here and there and BAM! The car comes to life.

The Rednecks short is near final completion, just 27 shots left most of which are the car. Maybe in two more weeks all animation will be final. (fingers crossed)!

Thanks for all your support and fun e-mails. I can't wait to show you guys the final product! Stay tooned!
