“Despicable Me” has just been released over the week-end in the US, and apparently it did, shall we say, very well. It is the first movie on which I directed the animation. And after leaving Dreamworks (and having worked there for more than 10 years), let me tell you it’s a great feeling. But I mean, it’s also very surreal; our “small” movie did more on its opening week-end than the latest Dreamworks movie. The mind boggles. Now is it going to have legs? No one knows, of course…

So congratulation to the animators and everyone at MacGuff. And a big Thank You to everyone who sent in a kind word! :)

poseLib for Maya 2011

July 2nd, 2010 3 comments

I just released a new version of poseLib for Maya 2011. It’s compatible with Windows and Linux (didn’t test it on a  Mac, since I don’t have one). Between Highend3d and this site, poseLib’s been downloaded well over 20,000 times. And I know for a fact that it’s being used on production by movie and video-game studios worldwide. And do you know how many people expressed their support by donating? Two. Funny, no? 😛
