TS3-001


This Friday, June 18th, Toy Story 3 hits theaters. For those that don't know, I spent almost 3 years in the trenches on this film with the finest story/editorial team ever. I'm intensely proud of everyone who worked on it, as I believe we accomplished something truly great.
I'll save speaking about my role on the film for later, if at all, but suffice to say I got to contribute more than I ever thought I would to this beautiful film alongside a story crew I now count each and every member of as a dear friend. It was a profound experience to say the least, making this film, one that I will undoubtedly count as a highlight in my life.
My deepest appreciation goes to Lee Unkrich, Darla Anderson, Jason Katz, and Rachel Raffael for giving me a shot; and my dear friends Adrian Molina and Erik Benson for being the best, most inspiring guys one could get lucky enough to work with. To Michael Arndt, for being a genius. Thanks to Dan Scanlon, Chris Roman, Matthew Luhn, John Sanford and Ken Bruce for holding it down. To Jeff Pigeon, for being one of my favorite people here, and to our brother in arms, Justin Wright, who we all miss dearly.
Thanks to the love of my life Dani, for sticking with me on this long, wonderful journey.
It's crazy to think that 4 years ago, in my apartment in Toronto, this was all just a daydream.

See you all on Friday.

James: I found your blog through your wife's ( who's drawings and paintings I've enjoyed.) TS 3 is a fabulous film , one that you can be justifiably proud of. Great story work. But I have to commend the sketchbook drawings I found on your blog. In a word, brilliant!! Life on the fly captured with elegance and feeling and fantastic shapes and observation.
