As we drove away from our rural Pennsylvanian home to embark on our Westcoast live shows & screening, a huge giant bald eagle flew right in front of the car! It was such a magical thing! We kept driving and made it to New York last night where we set off to find a replacement case (my case and the airport security just weren't getting along) for my foley kit, a search also filled with magic thanks to the window displays of the various city department stores, the little animatronics and Christmas scenes swaying to the holiday bell tunes are always such a beautiful, eerie thing! A perfect magical intro into the magical world of animation which begins today at The L.A. Animation Festival! I also just realized that L.A. is the home of Walt Disney, a true magician and animation mastermind! O no, the holiday magic has taken over! YAY! Now, also magic, flying on a plane!
