Reverie: Kick-off Party

Reverie officially started late last night with two kick-off parties. The first hosted by ReelFX animation studio. The second being the Massive Black/ party, in conjunction with the American Film Institute. It was easy to spot the AFI people -- they were the ones in ties.

It's Jason Manely's intent to have this party "hit hard with the inspiration" and it works. Three DJs, Andrew Jones performance painting, 20+ digital and traditional demos, models to draw from...attendees drawing, watching the demos, dancing, and talking. Everyone seems super psyched to get to work for the next bunch of days.

I heard something about Shawn Barber being there too, since Massive Black is there.

Shaun is here. He'll be painting today, if I am remembering the schedule correctly. I'll be sure to get some shots.

Did anyone get shots of Greg Manchess getting down on the dance floor?

Interesting son is in school working on a graphic arts degree, he does a lot of cartoon type characters and is working on illustrations for someone's children's book. I will have to check back more often.
