Busy Week!

Well, because my motto in life is "Never a Dull Moment" - I give as an example this week:


 We managed to wrangle a babysitter and got to attend the crew screening of Big Hero 6.  It was held at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood - where the Academy Awards are held each year.  The directors, along with Ed Catmull and John Lasseter gave almost an hour of speeches.  The film was great, the party was fun.  An amazing night - and so proud of my wife and everyone at Disney for making just a stunning film.


Penguins had a special lunch over in Studio City to celebrate the crew's work on the film.  It was a lot of fun...and as Crowds *often* does, we closed out the place (and the bar).  It was a great way to celebrate the craziness that was Penguins.  Especially since it was a cross-site show, it was our only chance to see many of our cohorts face-to-face.


DreamWorks every 2 or 3 years holds a creative update.  It's a chance to get to see what films are in production and what's ahead.  It's always a great day - and this year they held it at the famous Chinese Theater in Hollywood (the one with handprints in cement out front).  

After the 3+ hour show and tell they held a party at a club up in the Hollywood & Highland complex.  It was awesome.  Great food, free drink, and dancing Boov aliens and Penguins on the dance floor :)   Because this wasn't a crazy enough day, my friend Allen and I had to bail out early to run down Hollywood Blvd to go see a touring production of "Pippin" at the Pantages Theater (where, incidentally, is where I proposed to my wife).

Never a dull moment :)
