Andrew is great. We hung out in Singapore during CGOverdrive 2006 when we were invited as guestspeakers. I still smile when I see bats now because Andrew tried to get me to take a flash shot of him with a bat (at the nocturnal zoo, where NO flash is allowed) and the flash startled the thing and it peed on him a little. :D

He is one of my fav animators from MI and totally enjoyed his 'residual energy' lecture at AM... good read! Thanks!

Hope he comes down to India for some of his master classes...

The thing that constantly amazes me is not just the talent he shows (even early on in his career), but the immense passion for teaching people. It's rare to get people that are so passionate about developing and informing others in their craft.

Plus he's just a fun guy. I think that's the most important part of education; keeping things fun.
