i am an unrequited astronomer, pretend patient, gentle adventurer, pedal enthusiast, recovering calligrapher, occasional thespian and unfinished poet living in portland, oregon. contacting me via email is usually a good idea.
sven wrote about his experience behind the scenes at coraline in december. that post was republished at vfx planet last week, which got noticed by laika, who wrote the company who hired the photographer who asked sven if he wanted to help her. so even though sven waited until neil gaiman postedabout his tour of laika and said nothing identifiable, everyone panicked and sven took his post down. but of course neither of us have any desire to tarnish the reputation of the woman who asked sven to be her assistant, because she knew how much he wanted to be at laika and she was doing him a really lovely favour.
now that we've taken the post down, i've asked vfx planet to do the same. i hope they will be reasonable & understanding about it.
i suppose the silver lining is that it gave me a great deal of motivation to create a decent 404 page.
