    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.

    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.

    The Los Angeles Film School has an Associate of Science Degree in Computer Animation, set to begin in September.

    The Computer Animation Associate's Program will allow students to learn the animation pipeline used throughout the industry to create art and special effects for games, TV and film. It will feature training in advanced modeling software to create virtual models, characters and visual effects for a variety of multimedia applications.

    The new degree will join the Los Angeles Film School's recently introduced Associate of Science Degree in Film as the next step in the evolution of the school's curriculum.

    "These degrees are a natural addition to the curriculum at The Los Angeles Film School," said CEO Diana Derycz-Kessler. "Game developers and computer animators have stories to tell, much like our filmmakers."

    "This is a great addition to the educational landscape in Southern California, as Los Angeles is the hub of the gaming industry," said Andi Smithers, research and development senior engineer for Sony On Line in San Diego. "Not only is there a strong industry demand for well-equipped people, but as technology changes and new techniques need to be acquired, professionals are constantly looking to refresh their own skills."

    Founded in 1999, the Los Angeles Film School is located in the heart of Hollywood at the historic RCA Building at 6363 Sunset Boulevard. The private post-secondary educational institution is complete with a faculty of industry professionals teaching its students the craft of filmmaking, including film production and postproduction technology with an exceptional film curriculum in state-of-the-art facilities.
