Get the Monkey Off Your Back!!!

The Lozt Boyz have started a new tradition at BSS, known as THE GIANT MONKEY ON YOUR BACK.  

The monkey is a physical reminder of all the pressures that come with animating an amazingly long and important shot.   Its sort of a gift as well as a curse. 

Our first recipient was Joe Antonuccio.  And as of today, we are proud to announce that the Monkey is officially off his back.  He finaled his 5,000 frame shot of 4 characters.  Yay!!!

Perhaps the best part of getting the monkey off your back, is putting it on someone elses. 

 Ahh yes...The office appropriate handoff to Garrett Shikuma.   :/

Sorry Garrett.  But your shot is going to be awesome!


  1. It looks like Joe is doing something else to that Monkey...

  2. Just another beautiful thing that animators do with blow up dolls!
