Thank You - 11/23/11

New episode tonight.  Started out as a normal episode but now it's a special Thanksgiving episode and also might soon be (in slightly edited form) an Oscar nominated short.  Fingers crossed.

Also this was the first and only one I've storyboarded by myself, just fyi.  I tried pretty hard to tell a syrupy story in an unsyrupy way... it's still pretty syrupy I guess, but I think it came out pretty nice.

this is Pens mOm Bettie......so what do you mean Oscar nominated?? Please explain!

It's not nominated yet, but it's one of 45 qualifying films for the best animated short category. Next the list gets narrowed down to 10 then down to 5 actual nominess. I think I'll find out in January if I made it.

Ohhh- Hi Bettie! Somehow I thought "Pens" was your first name and "mom Bettie" was your last name... or something... I must've been half asleep. Anyhow, yeah- Pen and I will be nominated together if it gets that far. Fingers crossed.

Nekobasu- thank you!

Emily, thanks much! I hope you dig it. See you around soon.
