Voltron: Legendary Defender

Sunday, March 27th, 2016

Like most people that grew up on Saturday morning and after school cartoons I have a favorite in the after school category and I am happy to hear that Netflix and DreamWorks Animation have teamed-up to create an original animated series based on the 80’s after school favorite Voltron!

The best part is when the individual cats of Voltron lock together and that is what you’ll see here in the teaser trailer announcing that the first season, consisting of 13 episodes, will premiere June 10, 2016

The website is also quite cool!

This trippy and hilarious retelling of Little Red Riding hood was nominated for an academy award in 1997 yet it is a rarely seen gem hidden in Disney’s vault. Video quality is poor but still worth a watch.

Take a look at the voice talent used for this rare production!!

Seeing Film Vertically

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

Our new mobile technology has people sharing photos and videos in a vertical format but not all video players take advantage of this option for creative outlets. Don’t resist the new possibilities but demand that your video players of choice are open to the idea of a flexible canvas.

As various formats become viable creative outlets based on their spaces it will be fundamental to introduce a vertical canvas for expression. We are already seeing the square format hinging the canvas to go either way as it should.

This video is a perfect example of enjoying new storytelling possibilities with a vertical canvas.  Watch how the horizontal world is referenced and the vertical is enhanced.  Storytelling is going in every axis; embrace it all!

Everything I Can See From Here

Star Wars Uncut

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

In 2009, Casey Pugh asked thousands of Internet users to remake “Star Wars: A New Hope” into a fan film, 15 seconds at a time. Contributors were allowed to recreate scenes from Star Wars however they wanted. Within just a few months SWU grew into a wild success. The creativity that poured into the project was unimaginable.

SWU has been featured in documentaries, news features and conferences around the world for its unique appeal. In 2010 they won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media.


Blender | Big Buck Bunny

Friday, May 30th, 2008

Blender is the amazing open-source 3D modeling and animation program available for all major operating systems under the GNU General Public License.  Each summer a handful of artists from all over the world converge in Amsterdam for six months to produce a CG short using only open-source (FREE) software.

Elephants Dream

Since seeing the first movie I have been learning to use Blender, which is nothing like any other 3D program I have ever used.  The interface takes some getting used to but once I unleashed the power of this unique software I realized that I want ALL of my programs to work this way.
