What a weekend! William Wall, the director of Daisy Belle, and myself took my old 2004 Honda out to Palm Springs on Saturday, for the Pacific Southwest Emmy Awards Ceremony! It's an event we'd been excited about since we decided we were going to create Daisy Belle.
It was a warm enough day out that when we walked into the Weston the cool air of the lobby felt refreshing. Walking further we began to see the formal attire, red carpets, and the step and repeats! The place was packed and as we made our way into the crowd the air got a little warmer. We got our seating assignments. Table 42 :)
A few minutes later and the doors to the awards room were opened. The tables were elegantly dressed and every seat had a bag of goodies on it! The stage was dazzling, teasing us all with that which we desired, the golden winged ladies. It was such a delightful and thrilling evening! The people were kind, inspiring, interesting, and the dresses were beautiful! The bags were even filled with vegan & vegetarian goodies! I was seated next to a sweet woman there with her husband who was nominated for music composition for a documentary! She and I connected on a deep level. We both looove shiny things! :) haha
And the rest is a blur, but I can tell you our 4 person team won each and every Emmy we were nominated for! What a great night!
The making of Daisy Belle was unforgettably fun, and so packed with learning experiences that I'll use in films to come. I'm so proud of Daisy Belle and the team for all of the hard work and skill they dedicated to making such a beautiful film! I would have been fine if we'd all gone home empty handed, but I'm really happy we didn't!
Congratulations team Daisy Belle! <3
Back in the early 2000's I was obsessed with the idea of learning to animate. After 6 months of studying Autodesk Maya textbooks and learning how to create an animation from the ground up, I created an intro video for Solar Light Films that I would like to share with you today! I hope you enjoy the story of a butterfly that morphs into a bright light in the heavens. Watch the Butterfly Intro Video here.

A brief peek into the Production Design for Daisy Belle's Lavender Lady. I hope this will inspire ingenuity and determination in your creative process! Push the limits of your perceived abilities, have courage, and go make something great!
I'd love to see what miniatures you have created! Feel free to post in the comments!
I love stories, people, discovering new mediums to play with, and music.
