As everyone knows, animated films are one of the easiest things in the world to make. There's never any disagreements and the original director always sees the film through to the end. Sure........well, I ended up pitching a version of Hotel Transylvania I would have liked to see when one of the versions I was hired to work on came to an abrupt end one sunny SoCal afternoon. It's a great exercise in storytelling to give yourself the challenge of trying to incorporate the ideas you know the studio wants to have in the film vs. the ideas that excite you personally about the concept. So, I spent a week and whipped up this pitch to the Sony Anim. Development Dept. I still kinda like it...(;^P
(-my version of the Mummy had him all wrapped up including his Pharaoh-style hat and he carried the jars with his embalmed internal organs......funny! Right?!?)

Sketching like this is a great exercise in visual editing, especially if you give yourself a time limit to sketch...
