Happy 4th of July!
I’m now officially independent from DreamWorks Animation. So not only will I be celebrating the United States’ Independence today, but also my own. This week has been great because for the first time I have been able to be open to tell people what my plans are, and I have been getting some interesting reactions. Some people look at me like I’m crazy, and you can see the eye roll and thought bubble saying “never going to happen!”. On the other extreme are the people that get really excited, and start talking about exchanging contact information so that they can come work with me. Most people seem to fall somewhere in-between these two extremes. I guess these reactions are to be expected, since most people do not try and start their own animation company. I also ran into some people that opened up to me about their own entrepreneurial efforts that they are secretly working on.
