*Shamless Plug* "Rio!" Our first movie trailer!

I am REALLY excited to finally share some actual moving visual images of what finances my triathlon addiction.

My studio's next film, "Rio!" is finally in a trailer format to launch to the world. The trailer will be at the front of the next Shrek movie.

My contribution is that I did the all of the feathers and fur work on the blue main character birds named Blu and Jewel. It was a two year process....(and I am glad that it is over!)

Without further ado, grab some popcorn and enjoy! Film will be out Easter of 2011.

  1. Oh great! I have to wait almost a year to see it? That was cool Jon! I picked up on who the Toucan is...George Lopez. Blu and Jewel are beautiful; good work on thier color and feathers. I couldn't pick up on who their voices are though. I must say that I adore animated films.

  2. Showed my girls the clip, they loved it. Is blue your favorite color now?

  3. Hi little bro,
    The movie trailer was great! It looks like a movie that the entire family can enjoy:) I think that it is so wonderful that you had a part in making it!! Go you:) Have a great day Jon!

  4. Nice work! Big fan of Hyacinth macaws they are amazing looking birds. (They are hyacinths right?)
    A good story here.

  5. WOW! I always wondered who the guy(s) were that did the texture work(feathers & fur in this case) to make the character animated films look so realistic. Congrats, I can't wait to see it.

  6. Way cool! I love the fact that the trailer is almost like a movie in itself and not just a bunch of 3 second clips.

    You have to be completely sick of both birds and the color blue by this point. haha

  7. Ok, I take back everything I said about your photoshop skills! I am humbled; great job! So my son will be 5 when this comes out, perfect.

    Who are the bird voices? I recognize George Lopez for the Tucan. Very cool.

  8. You have interesting work, and you seem to love it, and have a flair for it...thats awesome. The kids now officially LOVE the muppets (cant beleive I didnt think of pulling that for them before) your movie trailer clip is excellent!

  9. Saweet!!! I love animation films!! I'll be sure to see this one just 'cause you worked on it!

  10. That is so awesome and amazing that you did that!! It looks amazing! I can't wait to see it! :)
