Por las barbas de mi gato - My cat´s whiskers

Wow the images are incredible (so many favorites, but 6:50 is one of them). Love the changes since your last iteration (with the "spy network" and the instagram cat! haha). I have only two notes. #1. the realization at the end (7:28) is great but i'd love to SEE it happen earlier in the story. So when he is in the cat's body it would be nice to have **one moment** where we notice him having this realization. #2 I think you could shorten the espionage network part and get right to 5:24 (she goes online and realizes she needs to find the special cat to help him). While it's funny, it feels like extra stuff packed in, which isn't helping me get to the moral of the story. That's just my perspective. I think you have a great story here and can't wait to see the final version. let me know if any of this isn't clear

Also we are only asking users to judge based on "storytelling", which is what our user choice award is intended to recognize (great storytelling) not production value etc.

Great question. We don't expose any 'ranking' and all projects get equal exposure in the exhibition gallery. What we do is use a 'private rank' to determine the user choice awards only. So while we could exclude you from there, practically speaking you wouldn't know the difference (except you'd have no chance at a user choice award). Let me know what you think we love this question. Our goal with the exhibition was to showcase work, not rank users.

This program can help you with opportunities in two ways. #1 it can help you build your portfolio for applying at any animation studio, #2 work in our final exhibition is looked at by the public (including recruiters) and can lead to opportunities with employers looking for talent. This happened to one of our users last session. So the best thing to do is finish the program and put your best foot forward in the Exhibition (which people will be coming back to look at for years to come). Of course we hope to expand the ways in which the talent in this program is matched with opportunities, it's likely the next big thing we will push forward on.

That is a great question. I'm not entirely sure about the requirement of being a screenwriter at Pixar. But I found this article online about a screenwriter and his path to TV animation. I hope it can be helpful.

Hey It's Connie He here. Yes, it is possible! You can have your character speak while performing or cut away to other things while the dialogue continues. I found examples that did an excellent job of combining dialogue and visual performance. I hope they can inspire you.
