While technically this almost the end of the movie, Sneak Attack was the first animation we completed. Like most things I do, it starts with a test animation just to see if the concept is good, in this case it was a rough of the first 30 seconds up until the Dental Commander runs up the stairs. It was pretty obvious we were onto something great and the pieces just fell into place, four years later we had a movie. This video is over ten years old, when I started working on it my computer was a Powermac 7600 with version 3-ish of After Effects, renders would take days for a couple of seconds.
"Terence Kemp McKenna (November 16, 1946 – April 3, 2000) was a modern philosopher, whose main interest was psychedelics and their role in society and existence beyond the physical body"
This is one of my favorite speech, Terence teach us to think for ourselves and to enjoy every moment of our lives.
This is one of his many speeches that changed my perception of life, Terence made me realized how we can enjoy our lives at it's full capacity by enjoying every little thing that happens through our every day live.
Do what you feel, not what your told.
Think for yourself.
Be not afraid, you are a god, a creator with unlimited potential.
"I have realized that the past and the future are real illusions, that they exist only in the present, which is what there is and all that there is."
"Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
"There are two ways to look at life. One is though nothing is a miracle; the other is as though everything is"
"What blinds us, or what makes historical progress very difficult, is our lack of awareness of our ignorance."
"I always thought death would come on the freeway in a few horrifying moments, so you'd have no time to sort it out. Having months and months to look at it and think about it and talk to people and hear what they have to say, it's a kind of blessing.
It's certainly an opportunity to grow up and get a grip and sort it all out. Just being told by an unsmiling guy in a white coat that you're going to be dead in four months definitely turns on the lights. ...
It makes life rich and poignant. When it first happened, and I got these diagnoses, I could see the light of eternity, a la William Blake, shining through every leaf. I mean, a bug walking across the ground moved me to tears."
