    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.

    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.

    DesignMentor Training announced Wednesday the addition of master illustrator/animator Chris Georgenes to its roster of Flash trainers.

    Georgenes teaches Flash Animation, the final class in DesignMentor's comprehensive Flash Design Portfolio-Builder Program (www.designmentortraining.com/flashportfolio), where students learn character animation and techniques used to enhance any Flash design project.

    By using basic frame-by-frame techniques and tweening, Georgenes teaches students to draw and animate simple characters, add motion, drama, and expression. In Georgenes' online class, students storyboard and animate a 30-second sequence with a soundtrack and bring their character to life.

    "With advertising and entertainment moving to hand-held devices, the opportunity to learn Flash from someone of Georgenes' stature is a unique benefit we offer students," said DesignMentor Training CEO Doris Granatowski. "His sense of humor and teaching skills generate rave reviews giving creative professionals access to a high-caliber, successful animator they wouldn't ordinarily have a chance to study with."

    In addition to teaching at DesignMentor Training, Georgenes, based in Wellesley, Massachusetts, runs a firm named Mudbubble that specializes in animation for broadcast or the Web. He has produced work for Adobe, Yahoo!, Digitas, Pileated Pictures, and Fablevision which can be previewed on his Web site, www.mudbubble.com.

    "I favor projects that push my own design and animation skills. The challenge is pulling it off and exceeding the client's own expectations. I use the same theories with my students by helping them generate skills while pushing their creativity and boundaries," said Georgenes.

    "I will tell my client 'Sure! No problem. I can do that.' without really knowing if I can. Pushing boundaries is what learning is about!"

    Flash online classes start upon enrollment, and students are able to complete work at their own pace and on their own schedule. Additional information on the Flash Animation program benefits and the five other Flash courses offered by DesignMentor Training can be accessed at www.designmentortraining.com/flash.
