Drag ‘n’ Fly
Is the latest group project that is being run by the production group, a student group and had its start in the group project class. You’ll note some of the models from the film were used in my second book – Rig it Right.The images from the film look great and the students have had a lot of fun on it.

For many years I worked in the Feature Animation and game industry helping those artists make amazing works of art. Mostly, I was behind the scenes and working with artists in every department. Sometimes, I received a credit: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0641158/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 Many times I remained uncredited, which does not diminish the honor it was to serve as a part of that amazing history with Dreamworks, WDFA (Walt Disney Feature Animation) and EA (Electronic Arts Tiburon).
