    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.

    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.

    Here is a little animation I created back in 1996 when I was working for IVID Communications in San Diego, CA. Just for fun! Of course everyone was working on early PC clones that would be brought to their knees more often than not when frame rendering was underway. We had Studio Max and 3D Studio Max, but the huge drawback at this time (1996) was animation software that didn't offer real-time frame rendering. So you had to make all your timeline and character cues flying sort of blind. Only when the rendering was complete (sometimes overnight!) could you see the results of your animation choices. Usually this meant having to fine-tune the crap you forgot or adjusting the timeline/cue/event parmeters ad infintum, etc... IVID developed large CD-Rom based multi-media training programs for Fortune 500 clients like Ford Canada, Jaguar, Robinson May, and the U.S. Government.

    Anyway, this was a little exercise in MacroMind Director utilizing a scanned animation cel image from the intro to the 1960's sitcom "I Dream of Jeannie". I took the one image and just replicated it across the stage while flipping the it from left to right, etc. The bell chimes are a real early PC wav file used for alerts and what not. I kid you not it took my network assisted desktop clone 3.5 days to successfully render this little clip complete. The intro and outro credits were created in Windows Movie Maker. Enjoy!
