End of the year update and thanks 2007

Craig Gilmore


Hi! Time for the annual summary/review. This one will be short and sweet and I’m running around on a project.

It’s definitely been a year of changes, and very busy work year again and filled with new and exciting projects with new clients and continuing projects with past clients. Notables include Jennings & Co., Fox Searchlight, Boulevard Films, Dripping Dead Films, Ubisoft Ent. , Merscom Ent. and a whole slew of others. My sincerest thanks to all of my clients who worked with me over the past year and called me for illustration. I really enjoyed all the projects and I hope to further nurture those relationships in 2008.

I’m currently on a feature film called “The secret life of bees” in Wilmington, NC. I’m going back and forth from the production and working on location and also remotely. It’s a great production based on a bestselling novel and on which I’m pleased to be a part of. The whole crew is great and I’m looking forward to working with them all. Thanks for the opportunity!

Thanks to I.A.T.S.E. Local 491 for all of their help with both my membership, representation and also continuing to help in the marketing of my work on the union side of productions. I really appreciate all you do, and I’m glad to be a part of 491. You do a great job.

Thanks also to my agents at 411 Creatives as well as Pigment Creative and US Animation sales. Thanks for helping get my work in front of people who can hire me 🙂 I look forward to working with you on the coming year! My next project in LA!

Thanks to our families for all of their support in what was a juggling act of a year. Your encouragement is very much appreciated and cherished. Finally, Thanks to my wife for all of her support with my crazy job. She is always behind me and helps keep me going like the Energizer bunny even when I don’t have the energy 🙂 I love you.

I’ll be posting again soon but I hope that everyone has a very safe and happy holiday season filled with family, love, and fun! Be safe!
