The Lozt Boyz

LoztBoyzHands down one of the best perks to working at Blue Sky and working on the east coast is that we aren’t forced into the animation union. This may sound counter intuitive, but I couldn’t be happier about not participating, and it comes with advantages like the fact that we can build and decorate super elaborate work-spaces without the union getting in the way.

For instance, I’m fortunate to work in a tree-house! The Lozt Boyz tree-house to be specific. Sure, I didn’t participate in actually building it, but I when my good friend Pete Paquette left the studio, I was quick to swoop in and take his spot. We now lovingly call the space Lozt Boyz 2.0. It now consists of Nick Bruno (current sup on Peanuts), Scott Carroll (current sup on Peanuts), Melvin Tan (current sup on Rio 2), and myself. I also love the fact that these 3 supervisors have chosen not be in an office. They wanted to be right in the middle of the crew to make sure they stay in touch with what’s going on, and to make sure they are absolutely as approachable as possible.

Here’s a little behind the scenes video about our little workspace. The doc is a bit old so it mainly features the original Lozt Boyz, including current Ringling instructor Paul Downs. The Lozt Boyz.
