Here's an animated short film introduction to one of my favorite characters, Ursula The Uber-Girl. Now, I've been working with little toddler Ursula for more than twelve years, and she's gone through a number of incarnations, from 2D, to 3D and back again, but she's always been extremely dear to my heart, and its great to finally begin sharing her many adventures with you guys.
This short, which premiered this past summer at the Reno Film Festival , marks Ursula's first public appearance... And yes,while its just a tiny taste, trust me when I tell you that there's a whole lot more to come from her in the future. For now, sit back and enjoy the very first baby steps of URSULA THE UBER-GIRL™ in BARBELLS-A-WEIGH!
