so, today i got a chance to talk to my mentor, mike gabriel, a little more. can't wait to learn from this great guy. to give you an idea on his abundant visionary skills, he directed the totally awesome short, "Larenzo", a while back (hasn't been released yet). i new it existed, and i really wanted to see it, so he happily showed it to me. GREAT! so f'n cool man. it's been a pretty good day. i am so blessed with everything. i'm hungry! enjoy these characters...that you'll probably never see in a Disney film.
