A Day in the Life – #327 February 2023

This month, we were invited to share a day with the amazing Ellen Jin, the talented art director of DreamWorks’ animated series Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight, which begins its second season this month on Netflix.

8 a.m. After a couple of decades of my career, deciding what to wear in the morning is still the most time consuming-thing in the world. Why is that? I always end up wearing something black anyways!

10 a.m. Fun time begins at work. Working with my EP Peter Hastings, CG producer Dan Godinez and the hardworking and talented crew of Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight is so much fun. We turn everything into magic here: Skadoosh!

11 a.m. Whaaaat? I just get to sit and paint!? I love this!

Noon: Here’s my semi-balanced lunch! Vegetables are overrated anyway, right? Just please don’t tell my kids I said that!

1:30 p.m. Our incredible lighting lead Kim and I finish reviewing footage. Teamworks, DreamWorks!

2:30 p.m. Our superstar production manager Monica keeps us all on the right track.

3 p.m. Production coordinators Jada and Carolyn take a stroll around the campus with me. We all need a break!

7:30 p.m. So that was another good day at work. Now it’s time to relax with my family!
