    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.

I'm working on a new Web cartoon series

    I would like to make an announcement.

    In the wake of having renewed an interest in cartoons since August 2014, I felt like i was motivated to start a new project.

    Last September, I have offically launched my latest project.

    I am working on a new cartoon series that I plan on uploading to a video sharing site after the first season is completed.

    The episodes will follow a similar pattern to Saturday morning cartoons in the 1980s. 13 episodes per season, consisting of two 11-minute segments.

    This cartoon series will be designed for viewing by mature audiences (TV-14) because of certain content that may be a bad influence, but there definitely won't be any material deemed "too adult" (hence the TV-14 rating), though I will do a TV-G version afterwards.

    The series will focus on a group of female teenage detectives, and has an ambiguous setting - it is set in the early-1970s, but with more modern fashion, and definitely some pop culture from today. Some episodes will involve a Scooby-Doo style plot, minus a canine companion, while others will be more like saving a damsel in distress, or investigating a crime. At least two episodes will not involve crimefighting - one will involve defeating a tough guy in a race, and one will involve traveling back to prehistoric times and getting trapped in time.

    Some of the plots I intend to use are:

    - Invisibility
    - Stolen statues
    - Criminal posing as one of the detectives (as in a double)
    - Submarine/Surfing
    - Treasure hunt
    - Ballroom
    - 5K race
    - Blackout
    - Kidnapping
    - Camping in a forest
    - Robots
    - Missing book
    - Mummy
    - Animal transformation
    - Birthday robbery
    - Prehistoric/Dinosaurs
    - Shopping mall
    - School for crooks
    - Rock concert
    - Wild West

    I may do a Bermuda Triangle plot too, but that may be the treasure chest episode.

    James Vipond, a user on these forums, has agreed do to some of the voice work, while I am doing some voice work, storylines, scripting, and animation - the latter using a program called DAZ Studio, with the pwToon shader. James and I will be credited for the voice work.

    James is also helping me find some props that would be useful in my productions.

    I am aiming for a release of my series before the decade is out, and while animating may seem tedious, that was the case many years ago. In this day and age with computers and technology, animation is a piece of cake.

    I have created some video clips already, one scene I created for an episode runs for 30 seconds, so there is only 10 1/2 minutes of that particular episode to be worked on.

    I don't plan on announcing my series until I upload all of the episodes in the first season to YouTube or wherever I choose to upload them. Only James and I know about this, but the rest is private - for now.

    I recommend to James not to release any links to my sample work - I don't want to spoil it for anyone, I want my series to be a surprise.
