Manic Expression Loses One of It’s Own

I have just learned that Stephen Leotti, the man animating Manic Expression: The Movie, died in a tragic car accident. His work was exceptional, and I greatly enjoyed the short time we got to work together. He was an amazing animator, a fantastic director, and while I didn’t know him well I did enjoy our conversations and felt we were becoming friends.

Here is an example of what he was working on for the film:

 

 

Our thoughts go out to his family at this difficult time.

As for production on Manic Expression: The Movie, vocal performances are still being recorded. We will begin the search for a new animator in January.

Stephen Leotti continues to work on our very first scene, and I wanted to show just how amazing this is beginning to look. He says to expect a final cut in about two weeks.
