    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.

    Classic cartoons from 1900 to 1955 will be presented Saturday, October 9 in Rome, New York as part of a program on the art of the animated film.

    The program will take place at 2:30 p.m. at the historic Capitol Theatre, 220 West Dominick Street, with a repeat screening at 7 p.m.

    Capitol director Art Pierce says that the show was especially compiled for the theater. The first part will feature silent cartoons from 1900 to 1927, with live theatre organ accompaniment by Avery Tunningley. Sound cartoons from 1928 to 1955 will be featured in the second part.

    Works of historic importance in the first part will be the partially animated film The Enchanted Drawing; 1906's Humorous Phases of Funny Faces, generally considered to be the first film containing drawn animation; two of the early Disney "Alice" cartoons, depicting the a live-action girl's adventures in an animated world; and a "Ko-Ko the Clown" cartoon from the Fleischer Brothers.

    Part 2 starts off with Disney's first sound cartoon, Steamboat Willie with Mickey Mouse. It goes on to showcase such acclaimed shorts as the surrealistic Bimbo's Initiation, co-starring an early version of Betty Boop; the early color film Balloonland, by Disney disciple Ub Iwerks; A Wild Hare, the first "official" Bugs Bunny cartoon; and works by such animators as Tex Avery and Chuck Jones.
