He's pretty hefty for his age but our beloved Fatkat is 2 years old!
It was two years ago that Nikki and I incorporated Fatkat Animation Studios. We were working on a series for CBC at the time with a staff of 2 brand new artists. Since then... ...well you know the rest!
I hope Fatkat has many more birthdays with bigger and bigger cakes in the years to come and I'm thrilled to death to have such a kick ass crew to celebrate with.
Thanks to everyone for helping us get to where we are today. Fatkats of old and new!
Thanks to: My ever supporting wife Tara, my family, my CFO Nikki Hilton, VP of Business Andrew Dunn, Partnership Executive John Nowlan, VP of Production Christopher Richardson, My lovley assistant Liz Hogan, My Senior Artists, Patrick Proulx, Jon Roth, Daniel Theriault, Mick Harrison and Neven Nesic, Programmer Extraordinaire Cameron Fraser, Associate Producers, Bill Gulliver and Buddy Bolton, all the talented animators and artists that make this big machine move - Melanie Gallant, Robert Anderson, Craig Schriver, Spence Robinson, Gwen Mitchell, Leon Arispunandar, Doug Little, Chantelle Cochrane, Andy Coyle, Stephen Pitre, Mike Concannon and our little french fried intern Brian Roy.
Man, I hope I didn't miss anyone currently on staff.
