"Road Test" has been doing very well for me, winning several awards and it's gotten a second life on the internet and a little cult following. People really seem to be identifying with the jokes and semi-ideas in the first movie. So I've got something else everyone can identify with: Road Rage! We've all experienced it (or had a case of it) I really don't see it as a sequel; you don't need to see Road Test to enjoy Road Rage. The easy way out would be to sequelize the story to death and have a new kid take a road test with the same instructor (Mr. Dot) but I decided to bring back the same character, Gabe Pace, that took his horrifying test and zoom forward 10 years to reveal that he's an even-tempered taxi driver. As I did with the first short film, I'll be keeping a blog of my progress (pencil tests, useless thoughts and more). I've already written a rough outline of the story; the showstopper of which is a big screwball action sequence that will be a pain in the ass to animate but if all goes well it will be something really cool and fun :) Bye bye for now...

Barber Jay (barberjay.com), the best barber I've been to at Astor Cuts. I saw him last week and he has a lot more gray hair than I photographically remember, so I'm gonna have to tweak it before he goes on vacation mid_April (he wants to make copies upon copies upon copies for his family).
