Marv Newland visits Pratt



Our campus was lucky enough to get a screening and visit from animator Marv Newland, probably most known by those who didn't know any better (me) for "Bambi Meets Godzilla". He's a wonderful guy and I continue to wish him the best of luck with his films.

I don't normally enjoy films like these, or the more subtly strange and humorous, but Marv's stuff really found a niche in my heart!

Marv has a show tomorrow here in NYC at the Two Boots Pioneer theatre (www.twooboots.com/pioneer), and I encourage everyone to go check it out if you can (and if you're reading this blog obsessively enough to find out this late, which is a little creepy and a little flattering...). It's a great little theatre too, and actually where my fellow seniors and I will be having our premiere senior show.

Also, I further expand my growing knowledge in the vast world of HTML, and add myself a background image for the bloggidy blog. =D

I was lucky enough to have Marv as one of my animation instructors for all of last year at Vancouver Film School and he is incredible! he had a big hand in helping me with my final film...

Great work by the way! Nice style!
