World of Tomorrow Episode Two Review: Don Hertzfeldt Does it Again. Any number of superlatives have been hurled at Don Hertzfeldt’s “World of Tomorrow” — this critic listed the 16-minute short as one of the 10 greatest films of the 21st Century — but perhaps the highest compliment it’s received is that nobody ever really asked for a sequel.
Well, maybe that’s not true, maybe Hertzfeldt has actually spent the last two years being hounded by fans who wanted more of a movie they loved, but I’ve watched the original more times than is medically advisable, and the thought never occurred to me. A Woodsman Fights an Army of Angry Trees in This Vivid Fantasy Short. This Guy Hacked an NES Power Glove Into a Sweet Animation Tool. Most of us fantasize about being the badass kid with the Power Glove from The Wizard.
Dillon Markey went and made that dream his day job. Markey is an animator for Adult Swim’s reliably bizarre stop-motion show Robot Chicken. His toolkit includes one very unique item: A modified Power Glove that wirelessly controls his animation software. The bespoke peripheral is the subject of this lovely short video by LA filmmaker Ava Benjamin. The origin story: A few years back, Markey was animating a scene, moving from one side of the stage to the other, walking from the stage to his computer and back again. Behind The Scenes of 'Mr. Carton': The Animated Series Made With a Game Engine. Why a game engine?
Prior to the production of Mr. Carton, Bolufer worked in both the video game and animation industry. During that time, he could experiment with the available tools. With the usual off-line production toolset in animation, Bolufer told Cartoon Brew that he would be “spending time scratching my nose, playing guitar, drawing something on a paper under my keyboard, going to the cafe, waiting for my render to be finished.” But on games, due to the real-time gaming engines being used, he found he didn’t waste time composing a final image. The idea, then, to use Unity in the first place came about after Bolufer had actually developed a teaser in 2012 with other 3D tools. Bach, Brandenburg Concerto 4, 1st mvt., Bach Collegium Japan. "Pure geometry" by Romanowsky. More than animation: Software supports animated storytelling. Disney Research has developed new tools to help people use animation to tell stories by eliminating distracting details that hamper creativity, suggesting ways to fill holes in plots and assisting in the creation of virtual worlds where stories can play out.
"We are empowering anyone to create their own animated stories," said Mubbasir Kapadia, a former Associate Research Scientist at Disney Research and now Assistant Professor at Rutgers University. This could include anyone from a professional screenwriter who is creating pre-production storyboards to casual users who simply want to try their hand at animated storytelling. The researchers have developed two such tools - CANVAS, a computer-assisted tool for creating narratives, and Story World Builder, a graphical platform where people can create "story worlds" populated with characters and props.
Earlier this summer, CANVAS was presented at the ACM SIGGRAPH / Eurographics Symposium on Computer Animation held in Zurich, Switzerland. Terry Gilliam's Lost Animations from Monty Python and the Holy Grail Are Now Online. This year marks the 40th anniversary of Monty Python and the Holy Grail and as the group has always been upfront about shamelessly milking their fans for cash, there’s a new version of the Blu-Ray out, and a new print touring the world.
John Cleese and Eric Idle are currently also on an American tour, sharing the stage as a duo for the first time. Michael Palin has a book tour for the third volume of his diaries. Terry Jones is still working on movies and plugging charities on his Twitter stream. What Hayao Miyazaki's Films Taught Me About Being a Woman. “I wanted to make a movie,” the Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki told Roger Ebert in 2002, “especially for the daughters of my friends.”
The renowned filmmaker was referring to Spirited Away, his masterpiece about a young girl who finds herself working in a magical Japanese bathhouse run by a witch. But he could have been talking about almost any of his movies. Perhaps more than any other living maker of animated films, Miyazaki has created a grand library of work that, among other things, shows a keen understanding of the complexities of what it might mean to be a woman. Miyazaki’s films are bewitching and bewildering, beautiful and challenging in the best of ways. They are beloved for their strong female protagonists, their gorgeous largely hand-drawn animation, and for the way they blur conventional boundaries: between good and evil, between life and death.
