Hey, Jim Smith, how are you?
And what was the Half-Dan movie about?

Jim Smith said...

Hey Paul, sorry to get back so late. Half-Dan was a proposal for an animated feature about Vikings. The Dreamworks viking movie came out as we were doing the proposal, so... the client decided to do the Time Turkeys instead.
