Teresa Drilling


I've been very busy and haven't had much time to post anything. I did come across this great picture of animator Teresa Drilling working on a shot at the old Will Vinton Studios. It's one of my favorite images of those days and was taken by another great animator and photographer John Ashlee Pratt. The horse was built and armatured by Jamie Haggerty who is also a brilliant composer and sound designer.

Teresa sent a comment attributing the photo to Jim Lommason, or possibly John Klicker and identifying the spot was for Norfolk Southern railroad. . Thanks for clearing things ups!

Hi Kevin,

Yeah, it's one of my faves. I don't have any pics of you I'm sorry to say.

Hope you're doing well and working on fun stuff.

I forget who the client was but the spot centered on power so a galloping horse made of coal transforms into metal and then I can't remember the rest.

I think this was for Norfolk Railroad. The horse transforms from coal,metal,liquid,and wood.

I think you are right Kevin.

Hi Guys,

The photo was taken, I believe, by Jim Lommason, or possibly John Klicker, another local Portland photo pro who also took BTS pictures of the project, which was for Norfolk Southern railroad. The spot was on the air continuously for more than two years.
