The move

In early September 2008 I moved to Jerusalem to work on 'The Wild Bunch', Israel's first attempt at producing a computer animated feature film. I was hired as a TD (Technical Director) for the length of production (estimated to wrap late 2009).

I had previously been to Israel on various organized trips. The idea of living here for a short period always interested me but I thought it would involve picking pomegranates on some kibbutz for six months, not working in CG.

Israel is not easily definable. It's located at the bridge of three continents and life here reflects that. This is my first long-term move outside of Montreal and I'm sure it will be an interesting experience.
