It's 401(k) meeting time again, and I get to gallop from studio to studio shooting off my mouth about the joys of studying mutual fund opportunities and saving for retirement...
At Universal Cartoon Studio, they are wrapping up Season Two of Curious George, the Series and hiring staff for Curious George, the DVD Movie. (George is a monkey that keeps on giving...)
And up by the Bob Hope Airport, Film Roman/Starz Media still has a little bit of staff on The Simpsons Movie, working on last-minute repairs and retakes. They're also working on various animated spots to support the movie, so the Movie crew hasn't totally disbanded. (Although it's close. Layoffs have come in waves over the past few weeks.)
A staffer showed me a snippet of the climax -- in wide-screen color. Damn but it's funny. If the rest of the flick is on the same level -- and the tiny bits and pieces that I've seen over the past few months would indicate that it is -- come July 27, Fox-News Corporation will be able to open its own mint.
