It took a long time for Tinkerbell to first hit the big screen.  The project went through several directors and art directors before I came on board.  I joined the production as it was transitioning from a 2D hand animated film, into 3D CGI.  I spent a lot of time doing paintings of the characters to make sure they looked as good in CGI as they did in their classic hand drawn forms. I was fortunate enough to be there when Brad Raymond took over directing duties, and put the film on the right path.  Unfortunately I had to leave (for another film commitment) before I saw it through to the end.
