Hi Lisa,

My name is Zach Cox and I work at Circle of Confusion, a literary management/production company based in Los Angeles. I was wondering if you'd want to jump on the phone to discuss Dragonboy and your career goals/aspirations. I really enjoyed the short and would love to see where your head is at in terms of future projects. I can be reached at the email address below. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hey Lisa. I just had to leave a comment. The animation show-reel is incredible. I cannot wait to watch dragon boy all the way through. And also really enjoyed your piece of lip synch at the start. The two girls at the table. Subtle nuances. But captivating to watch. Particularly liked her gesture at the end when she shrugs holding the mug.
Anyhows
Hope things go well for you in the future
all the best
Graeme

I am trying to create a new type of user interface for my product. One that is based on animation techniques, and has a "personality" which can make an emotional connection with people. I already have a strong team working on an alpha version of the product. I am however still looking for a person who can create the right vision for the user interface. I realize that you must be a very busy person with your skills. But I think that even a little bit of your time can be a huge benefit to the product. If you can spare some time to talk on the phone I would love to give you more details. Can you email me so I can give you some more details? bibi@drbibi.com

Hi Lisa,


I’m writing to you because I am in need of an animator. I have reviewed your portfolio and loved what you did with Dragonboy. I am looking for someone to make a 30 second cartoon which will air on TV as a commercial to promote my children’s book series; Penelope’s Secret Cooking Club, which are available on Amazon. If marketing is effective, I would like to continue making future commercials with the hope that one day of turning this into a cartoon. My illustrator Kari and I have a great working relationship and plan to publish as many books as possible. We are looking for someone who can join us and complete our team.


If this is something that interests you, please contact me with a quote to make a 30 second animated video and the approximate time frame you think you would be able to start and finish this project. My email is rhutchinson@live.com


I look forward to hearing from you,


Robin Hutchinson
