IRON GIANT 10 YEAR REUNION !!!!!
Recently I was asked to take part in the Iron Giant 10th anniversary reunion on Oct. 23rd, 2009. It was amazing seeing everyone again. The Iron Giant was my first real job in feature animation. I was a kid, still in school, and Brad and the crew really took us kids under their wings. On the Panel my buddy Eddie Rosas and I talked about what it was like being rookie kids working with Brad and the crew on that amazing film. We definitely had stories (thats me in the white shirt embarrassing Brad). Working on that film changed my life. It is amazing to see how many people have come to love Giant, especially after its less than blockbuster opening weekend 10 years ago, August 6th 1999. You've come a long way Giant! SUUUUU - PER - MAAAAN.
