    You WIll Need To Reset Your Password!!!

    We just moved hosts on this system, and this has caused a few updates. One is the way we encode and store the encoded passwords.

    Your old passwords will NOT work. You will need to reset your password. This is normal. Just click on reset password from the log in screen. Should be smooth as silk to do...

    Sorry for the hassle.

    Other Side Of Maleficent

    I have been looking forward to Maleficent with equal amounts of anticipation and dread. On one hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, so cold and so pure, and I want desperately to see more of her and her back-story. On the other hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, and I would hate to see her parodied, taken lightly or ultimately destroyed in a film that does not understand this great character. The good news is that this film almost gets it right; but that is also the bad news.

    Disney To Feast In France

    The follow up to Disney’s 2013 Academy Award Winning short Paperman has been announced, and it will premiere at France’s Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Titled The Feast, the short looks to be based on the same stylized CG techniques used on last years Paperman, a more natural and hand-drawn look to computer animation.

    Renegades of Animation: Pat Sullivan

    Pat Sullivan became famous worldwide for his creation of Felix the Cat. What most animation histories gloss over is Sullivan’s checkered past and longtime standing as a wildcat renegade. He didn’t follow the rules. And he made damn sure to fully protect his intellectual properties.

    Vancouver Animation School, the leading Canadian educational institution offering entry-level and advanced programs for the animation, film and game industries, on Friday named well-known cartoon writer Jack Enyart the instructor for its newest online course -- Writing for Animation.

    "We are very excited to have a professional like Jack Enyart on our talented faculty team," said Mario Pochat, animator and founder of the Vancouver Animation School. "He has worked as a writer on cartoon series for classic names such as Scooby Doo, Bugs Bunny, Heathcliff and even The Chipmunks."

    The brand new online course offering from Vancouver Animation School will focus on two very intensive streams -- animation pitch bibles and animation scriptwriting. Students will learn how to create their own characters, settings and plotlines for animated series.

    "What many students don't realize is that the entire animation process starts with a clear and concise storyline," Pochat said. "This course is as critical to our students as how to create animation art."

    According to Pochat, it also may open the eyes of students who are not interested in drawing, but who have strong storytelling skills and want to apply them to the world of animation.

    "The animation industry truly needs to develop the next generation of skilled story writers," he said. "That's why we are so happy to have an industry leading writer and storyteller on our team."

    The new Writing for Animation course is Canadian certified by Vancouver Animation School and Private Career Training Institution Agency (PCTIA).
