    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.

    Assistant animator Diane Keener, department supervisor at Filmation from 1982 until 1989, died December 12. She was 78.

    From 1956 to 1991, she worked for Disney, UPA, Hanna-Barbera, Filmation and Warner Bros.

    Keener held several positions as an animator for He-Man and the Masters of the Universe from 1983 to 1985, and was character design supervisor for She-Ra: Princess of Power (1985-87).

    "There was such attention to detail by Diane Keener, I think, as department head," Lou Scheimer, producer of the two series, said in a 2006 Animation World News interview. "She really set the tone for what we were going for."

    She was key assistant animation supervisor for the TV series The Kid Super Power Hour with Shazam! and Blackstar (both 1981) and Gilligan's Planet (1982)

    Keener was a character design supervisor for the TV series Ghostbusters (1986) and BraveStarr (1987-88), along with the theatrical films The Secret of the Sword (1985) and BraveStarr: The Legend (1988), in addition to the 1985 TV-movie A Christmas Special.

    She was a model supervisor for the 1984 series Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids. A sheet timer for the 1994 series Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, she was a supervisor and assistant animator for the 1990 theatrical Warner Bros. short Box-Office Bunny.
