The Brotherhood of the Traveling Animators


 Ladies and Gentlemen...Tangled is finished. This has been the most amazing project I have ever worked on and I would like to give some quick credit where credit is due.
First and foremost I want to thank my sweet wife Becky for hanging in there with me. Its been a difficult road honey but life is back to normal now. Its cruise time baby! and you've earned it :)
Next I just want to say to the entire animation crew that we so totally rock!!!! The amount of animation that we were asked to produce in a matter of a few months is astounding, while still maintaining the highest level of quality. It was an unreasonable time schedule, yet we prevailed.
I would also like to just say thanks to my sups. I can't remember how many times you guys gave me a fix note that I disagreed with only to realize afterward that you were totally right.  (ok, at least %99 of the time you were right :) Thanks for the great leadership.
A special thanks goes out to Glenn Keane. Simply put, you are amazing and we could have never achieved such excellence without you. And hey, you're just a great guy to work with.
Finally, to my awesome Directors Byron and Nathan. You guys were way too demanding... and it payed off. Thanks for your brilliance, you guys had the vision of what you wanted and you stuck with it.

So now we move on to other things, some of my good buddies are on to other work and other studios. I'm sure all of our paths will cross again someday and I will always have fun remembering the crazy awesomeness that was the Tangled animation crew. 

I'm excited for everyone to see this film!!!!
