I know it took me a while to finally get this book out, but it finally all came together. This has been a long time in the making and I’m really glad that so many of you encouraged me to put this together. I only printed 1000 copies – so we’ll so how that goes. Enjoy, and thanks again for encouraging me.http://conteanimated.com/the-book/
If you haven’t seen it, I did a fun little Google Doodle on the goole.com homepage commemorating Martha Grahams birthday. Hope you enjoy it! Here it is as well.
Sorry everyone for the technical difficulties we experienced over the last 14 hours. According to our hosting company, we should be back up and running now without any issues. We hope it stays that way

I’m headed to the Digital Arts Festival in Redmond, WA this weekend to lecture and enjoy the rain. If you’re in the area, my lecture is at 4:30 on Saturday. I’ll be talking about my professional experience and my creative processes for animation and show some techniques I used on Thought Of You.
A final cut of the documentary is up on the site here
Additional footage of the dancers and other interviews will be available in the near future along with the book and prints.
What a fantastic opening reception. Thanks to all those that came and supported the night. Over 400 people showed up (sorry for running out of food!). I posted a ton of great pics on a new page called, The Exhibition. Thanks again. I’m looking forward to doing this again in another location.
