Hey all! I go back to work today after a month off. For the past 2 years, I’ve been directing tv shows in an office in the National Bank building on Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks. That is where we made the Dragons: Riders of Berk tv show. I worked with some amazing people and got to make some cool tv shows. I learned a ton.
Now, I go back to the Dreamworks campus, a beautiful oasis nestled in Glendale with a fountain, a frog pond and free lunch. My new project? I can’t say. It’s too early to say.
What is weird is that I have been absent from the Dreamworks campus for 2 years. Going back is strange. It feels like the first day of school. I’m actually nervous. I don’t even know where my office is.
Anyway, believe it or not, I really did dig the movies Clint Eastwood made with that orangutang and Ruth Gordon, also known as the “Philo Bedoe oveuvre “. As a young man watching HBO in 1980 or 81, I was rapt watching Eastwood beat overweight slobs and oily bikers senseless while the orangutang blew raspberries and Sondra Locke,..well, did whatever she did.
Enjoy the comic!
