    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.

    Nickelodeon will implement a new animated shorts program designed to develop comedy-driven content, Brown Johnson, president for animation of Nickelodeon and MTVN Kids and Family Group, announced.

    As part of the program, 10 60-second shorts will be made with the potential of becoming long-form animated comedy series which will air on the network or Nick.com.

    "The new shorts program gives us an opportunity to tap into comedy talent from many different sources," said Johnson. "We're excited to offer this unique opportunity to artists and comedians with all levels of experience, where their creative voices and point of view will be a potential pipeline for new animated series."

    Created to expand on Nickelodeon's animation comedy development slate, the shorts program is designed to attract new talent to develop both artist and comedian-driven shorts. Ideas will be solicited from in-house and outside talent, including artists, designers, writers and directors, who will be provided artistic support to produce their short depending on their level of experience. In addition, selected comedians will be partnered up with the artistic and production support necessary to complete their short.

    Guidelines for those interested in participating in the program are posted at www.nickshortspitches.com. Shorts should be original, funny and character-driven, featuring one or two comedic characters. All animation styles and techniques are encouraged from 2D to digital 2D, stop motion, CG or mixed media. The deadline for entries is March 30 at 6 p.m. PT.

    The animated shorts will be produced at the Nickelodeon Animation Studios in Burbank, California.
