    Animation in progress

    Working on getting the animation cleaned up and smoothed out for this, but it was a fun bit of practice.
  4. Tomorrow I'll be attending a lecture and getting a chance to talk to storyboard artist and animator Rafael Rosado. He did primarily animated series (notably he storyboarded on Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, Teen Titans and Transformers Prime, among others). I'm looking forward to this, as well as discussing on the idea working with him on something in the upcoming future.
  5. 1. Zero: a stunningly and beautifully crafted animation with quintessential execution and delivery paired with an emotional, perilous, and lost lorn plot structure that will leave audiences appalled and teary eyed. 2. Paperman: Disney's return to critical acclaim stature, Paper-man offers gorgeous animation topped off with a heartwarming tale about love. 3. Feast: Feast offers finely detailed animation with an embracing and calming ambiance. The plot structure may seem overdone but the execution will have you reeling. 4. La Luna: One of Pixar's best offerings animated shorts wise, La Luna delivers and then some. 5. Partly Cloudy: Creative, hilarious, and heartwarming. 6. The Maker: Depressing yet oddly heartwarming. 7. Students: Unconventional to a degree yet enticing and adventurous in its political message. 8. Descendants: Thought provoking world with a powerful ending. 9. The Little Matchgirl: When it comes to storytelling, The Little Matchgirl offers an exquisite tale topped with an emotionally wrecking ending. 10. Coda: Dark, brooding, and thoughtful, Coda offers something animation is keen to avoid. 11. Yearbook: A must-see this animated short is simply amazing. 12. Sweet Cocoon: Entertaining yet offers a thought provoking ending about life. What are your "Best Animated Shorts?"
  6. So this one. It's from the creators of The Lego Movie (which made only $211 million international). The premise looks interesting and the animation is definitely appealing (those babies are pretty cute). I'd say $100-150 million for now, but it could approach $200 million if advertised effectively and is actually good.
  7. So, a lot of the overall storyline is worked out, but this particular project is probably going to be on the back burner until my other webcomic starts posting later this year. But I'm enjoying these characters and this world so I really hope to do more with them ...my aliens are pretty gay. I think my own queerness shines through with this. lol
  8. Here are some previews for a project I'm doing some work on. It remains to be seen if this will be animated, but a lot of my animation influences are pretty clear here. This is a basic sci-fi story in the noir/mystery vein but with brighter colours.
  9. With the release of Zootopia, something has made me perk up a little bit; how long can Disney sustain this box office fire streak or as others have labeled it: Disney's Resurgence Era? After Walt Disney's unfortunate death, Walt Disney Animation Studios went through an arduous era in which a lack of creativity and drive resulted in the brink of extinction only to be brought back by Oliver and Company/The Little Mermaid. Anyone familiar with Disney's history knows that after Oliver and Company/The Little Mermaid, animation classics began to be churned out by the Disney factory which not only resulted in gargantuan box office successes but also critical acclaim. This era of Disney's life would be known as the Renaissance Era and was a pinnacle point in Disney's career as an animation studio house. As with Oliver and Company/The Little Mermaid, Bolt/The Princess and the Frog (debatable) brought a reignited interest in Disney and their products. Soon enough, Disney began to haul out animation success after success and reached fever pitch with the phenomenon known as Frozen which not only became at one point, the fifth highest grossing film of all time unadjusted but obtained the crown as the highest grossing animated film of all time unadjusted. Frozen was followed by Big Hero 6 which amassed over $220 million at the U.S. box office and over $650 million worldwide! Disney released their 55th animated feature; Zootopia which opened to unanimous praise and gargantuan box office success: will become only the 10th animated feature to cross the $300 million domestic mark, became the highest grossing animated film in China and currently stands at No. 10 on the all-time charts, and could become the 4th animated feature to cross the $1 billion mark. So, my question is, how long will Disney sustain their box office success? Will their future releases become modest hits without any significant impact on Disney's brand, will they become box office successes, or will they become the calm before the storm? Will Moana, Frozen 2, or Gigantic prove to be misfires? Beginning in 2008, with the release of Bolt, Disney began their comeback into the animation world. How long will it last? Disney Resurgence Era: - Bolt, 2008, $309 million WW - The Princess and the Frog, 2009, $267 million WW - Tangled, 2010, $591 million WW - Winnie the Pooh, 2011, $44.7 million WW - Wreck-It Ralph, 2012, $471 million WW - Frozen, 2013, $1.274 billion WW - Big Hero 6, 2014, $657 million WW - Zootopia, 2016, $800 million - 1 billion WW ~ Approx. $4.4 billion WW w/ an average gross of $550 million WW per film and 89.5% (positive) average critical reception Upcoming Projects: - Moana (2016) - Frozen 2 (N/A) - Gigantic (2018) - Wreck-It Ralph 2 (N/A) Oscars: - 12 nominations (3 short nominations) - 5 wins
  10. To introduce the company, Laika Entertainment is a company based in Oregon and specializes in animation, especially stop motion, whom all of their feature films have been created through. Their company was founded in 2005 and have released, to this point, three feature films: Coraline, ParaNorman, and the Box Trolls. Unlike the animation giants such as Disney and Pixar, Laika does not produce large budgeted feature films, rather moderate ones in which profit is guaranteed. However, recently, Laika has announced that they will be exclusively working with producing feature films, churning out a feature film per year beginning with Kubo and the Two Strings coming this August, 2016. Keeping in mind the box office track of their previous offerings, one may wonder, how will Laika expand its current audience to reach a broader appeal and commercial value compared to the other animation giants out there in the playing field to enable success? One may say that this plan will fail due to several factors: with so many animation departments and animation films getting released each year, competition has increased and adding in Laika's marketing, appeal, etc... it's inevitable this plan is more likely to fail than succeed. However, my question is, will Laika become another animation powerhouse? I believe that Kubo and the Two Strings, their next offer has the potential to beak out given its universally understandable premise of becoming a hero to save others and add in gods, magical items and weapons, etc.. it seems poised to becpke a $100+ million success. Early online activity for Kubo and the Two Strings have been positive, with many pointing out the exquisite detail of the animation (The Youtube trailer is almost at 500.000 views). However, others have criticized the marketing tactic used to employ the spotlight onto the voice actors and actresses as opposed to selling the story and animators. Coraline may have gotten their name on the map but Laika has yet to reach that level of appeal and success again as their most recent films have done poorly in the overseas market and domestic performance is somewhat staggered and barely profitable. Will Kubo and the Two Strings enable Laika to play with the big leagues or will it not break out? Cast your votes and tell me what you think!
