    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.

    [​IMG] Last night saw Disney freeze out most of the competition when the best and most creative in animation met at UCLA’s Royce Hall for the 41st Annual Annie Awards. Sponsored by ASIFA Hollywood, the awards recognize great works in television, theatrical film and games. This years awards were hosted by voice actor Tom Warburton.

    Disney seems to have scored the best with Frozen taking best animated feature, best music, best production design and best director, and Get A Horse! best animated short subject. Disney's Sofia the First also took Best TV Series for Preschoolers, while Cartoon Networks vastly overrated Adventure Time was best animated show for children. Futurama was the best general audience animated show.

    This now makes eight movies in the Disney Animated Classics line to win the Annie Award for Best Animated Feature. The others to get it were "Beauty and the Beast," "Aladdin," "The Lion King," "Pocahontas," "Hercules," "Mulan" and "Wreck-it Ralph!"

    I'd concur that Frozen could very well be the Disney feature film that captures the elusive Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. It seems that shortly after the departure of Eisner and the ascension of Iger, Disney has arisen from its funk and refocused on the Essentials of Filmmaking to retake the crown. Their partnership with Pixar is likely a huge help in that regard, but I suspect that Disney has also been peeking over the fence to see what its competitors are doing, and have been taking copious notes. Disney has gotten a new and valuable reading on what works in an animated film, and once again challenged itself to exceeding those mechanics. Instead of resting upon their laurels, Disney is trying to earn a whole new set; I must salute them for that. Ideally, the Academy should be analyzing the films with an eye toward story crafting and concept execution. If so, then Frozen has a great deal of filmmaking craftsmanship to admire. An award would be entirely correct. :)
