Is it persistence or insanity?
When you are focused on a project, as I have been for years on Fish Head ( with several interruptions for other life stuff like making babies, making money to pay for films and babies) your mind goes to places. I love the work, the slow progress, the characters coming to life and telling their story. It’s a good story with a message that I feel will resonate. It’s waiting for me when ever it’s time to sit down and work. Blister McFlatus calls me to the studio needing attention, the way my son Louis always wants to read more Dr. Seuss. But I look beyond the horizon for a completion date, only to see open sea. Will it end?
Just keep rowing. Except animating a film is much more fun than rowing.
