Pixar in Town

We had Pixar's Dylan and Peter over my office on Friday, after some talks we went out to dinner.
They are over for Siggraph Asia and their UGM, if you are in this field you should have gotten mail from me ... say no more ;)
I have been under a little(yeah right!) stress lately so it was great to get out of the office.
Tanaka san was over too, he is a good friend I hope he can handle my stress level lately.
Photo's care of Dylan:


Karin(back left) my intern had to leave early so she couldn't meet the P-Boys. Nick(back right) had to leave for other arrangements. He has just finished working on Avatar over from Weta Digital. He is in the back right just helping with some (****) tools. Helping is an understatement, he has pretty much been left to his own devices and came up with things in astounding time.
Karin and Nick had to go

Later at the Shabu Shabu restaurant mmmmmm tasty!


よしさんはビジネス関係を、Davidさんはアメリカ人のHoudiniオペレーターです。NickさんはWeta Digitalから来たばかりで、かりんは週末だけですがスケッチアーティストとしてトレーニングをしています。
この業界でのお仕事に興味がある方は私bernard at nexusinternational.jpまでメールにてご連絡ください。

Looking for an new intern

During winter break this is a great chance if you are a Tokyo CG student or interested in CG consider coming over as an intern and see what we do.
We have a small but cool setup here in Shinjuku Tokyo, helping out on film and experimental projects for Computer Graphics.
Multilingual environment, bunch of young cool people:
I'm the boss, Niimi is my assistant Japanese animator/Renderman guy, Yoshi on Japanese business relations, David an American Houdini operator, Nick just over from Weta Digital, Karin is our weekend sketch artist in training.
Remotely we have on PR William in London, Marie, Hisako and Svetlana our translation staff and a bunch of other people freelancing as Matte and Animation artists.
If you are interested in working in this field email me at bernard at and I will try to hook you up.
