    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.

And The Best In Animation Is.… Annie Award Winners

    Trophy Points:
    Tonight, film critic Leonard Maltin and voice actors Pinky and the Brain, urm, Uh, I mean Rob Paulsen and Maurice LaMarche are handing out the Annies at UCLA’s Royce Hall. For 40 years this annual event recognizes the best in animation from around the world.

    Through most of the night, things look pretty well split up between the big studios, with one award going to DreamWorks, the next to Pixar, then to ParaNorman, and then to Disney. But when the big awards came down, it was all Disney, with Wreck-It Ralph pulling in Best Music, Voice Acting, Directing and Best Feature. Disney short Paperman won for best animated short.
