Walter Elias

The Walt Disney Animation Studio

Walter Elias Disney, el gran pana me inspiro desde que tengo uso de razon. Since my Betamax Winnie Pooh tape, and the rest of the films that I kept collecting  (both original and copiadas, sometimes that was the only way to watch any of these gems..), I had almost every :) single feature and short...

Although there is not a single "best part" of being a part of this place, I love how open the doors are among & throughout the whole movie pipeline. Even when I was a trainee until today, I can go, dig, comment, share, get feedback, opinions, laugh, dance with/ from/ to anyone in the studio. It feels like a supermegaamazingsweetsparkedtalented artists community extravaganza in one roof sharing the same passion. It's contagious and very moving :).
The way "new blood" animation talent merges with the traditional animation craft masters all feeling THE HERITAGE through paper and technology is just.. the future. Great times to be around this place....very..very fortunate.. moves you. Sabor

E'chando cuentos ...

Mi first notebook/cuaderno/ Draw draw Draw Dibuja 

WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! TellTale was 2 years ago, already, super good busy these days (busy is good).. feeling fortunate but always aware.. studios closing here, projects canned there, artists been thrown around por alla. I did another cross country through USA, on the northern side this time. Muy buenos tiempos all the way back to CA :). I decided to be/stay back enjoying and exploring dulce San Francisco mio... mucha cultura y diversidad. During the couple of months I was back I helped out with a very cool project, muy cool - Three years ago while I was waiting for some paper work at a library, I picked up a random graphic novel  (I rarely read comic books; although some of my favorite stories and art come from comics noooveelas graficas.. soo) -  Well I ended up reading a couple of volumes of this one.. very original ideas with zombies. The art, the perspective, the characters, and the familiar situations, very niiiice. Anyway, fast forward 3 years later.. and that was the project I helped out in 2012. The Walking Dead... jajajajaa poco e' zombies.. These group of artists getting together and doing cool sweetly executed almost indie topic oriented games with some leadership from Lucas Arts (Monkey Island, full throttle animation awesomeness). (I was a little kid playing these animation heavy inspired interactive video games for PC, I was very young..blurred memories...good times.. :)  ..TELLTALE GAMES :) ... The Walking Dead... Art direction, comic book sketchy loose inkish lines.. I say yes...

The game has won over 90 "Game of the Year" awards, including awards from USA Today, GamesRadar, E! Online, and the Spike Video Game Awards (over 8.5 million individual episodes sold by the end of 2012).

    Feliz como una lombriz, tranquilo of course. I went back home to Venezuela for some good good sun and culture. Mi familia, mi caribe.. before starting this new journey via Los Angeles CA.. Disney... since I was a very young kid I was waiting for this..
