The Pixar Theory

The Pixar Theory
Every Pixar movie is connected. I explain how, and possibly why. Several months ago, I watched a fun-filled video on Cracked.com that introduced the idea (at least to me) that all of the Pixar movies actually exist within the same universe. Since then, I’ve obsessed over this concept, working to complete what I call “The Pixar Theory,” a working narrative that ties all of the Pixar movies into one cohesive timeline with a main theme. This theory covers every Pixar production since Toy Story. That includes: A Bug’s LifeToy Story 2Monsters Inc.Finding NemoThe IncrediblesCarsRatatouilleWall-EUpToy Story 3Cars 2BraveMonsters University The point of this theory is to have fun and exercise your imagination while simultaneously finding interesting connections between these fantastic movies. [SIDE NOTE: All text in blue indicates updated edits since the original version] You can read the full theory below, or watch this summarized video that was made and narrated by Bloop Media. Or does he? Mr.

By WA There’s no denying that the world is full of cruel, evil people capable of things you probably couldn’t even imagine. We see it on the news pretty much every day. But believe it or not, there’s a lot more good and kindness out there than you probably realize. Gregory House and Sherlock Holmes connections - House Wiki 'How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?' - Sherlock Holmes in The Sign of the Four (1890) on the basic concept behind the differential diagnosis. Series creator David Shore has said in an interview that Gregory House's character is partly inspired by Sherlock Holmes.[1] The name "House" is a play on "Holmes" (with English pronunciation, a homophone for "homes").[2][3] The "Uncle Jeremy's Household", published in "Boy's Own Paper" magazine is considered the first sketch that has clear raw material relating to Sherlockian stories, including notably Baker Street, a Watson-like narrator, a strong-willed woman looking ahead to Irene Adler and a prototype of Holmes, whose early name was Hugh Lawrence.

James Carlisle: Armature upgrade Back to uni and starting third year with a mime/after effects project. Started by upgrading my summer armature from hard foam to balsa wood.

"Will O' The Wisp" Production Bumper + Short Film (2014) - StopMotionAnimation.com Hello Everyone :) I've been posting some random W.I.P. photos and little test videos over the past year or so, but I recently discovered there's a "your project" section here in the forum. So this is a thread for my ongoing project, "Will O' The Wisp". 'The End of the Whole Mess' by Stephen KingStephen King needs no introduction. He is the award-winning, best-selling author of novels such as Carrie and the post-apocalyptic masterpiece The Stand. Although he is most well-known for his novels and the movies they’ve inspired, he is a prolific author of short fiction as well, having written enough of it to warrant several collections including: Everything’s Eventual, Night Shift, Skeleton Crew, and Nightmares & Dreamscapes. “The End of the Whole Mess,” appeared in the latter volume, but was originally published in Omni magazine in 1986. It was nominated for the World Fantasy Award, and was recently adapted into a one-hour movie as part of a TNT Nightmares & Dreamscapes miniseries.

The Best Faith Film You’ll See All Year Amidst all the hype and debate surrounding this year’s flood of faith-related films--Noah, God is Not Dead, and Heaven is For Real--a quiet Oscar winner from 2013, recently released to DVD, provides the most compelling story of faith I’ve seen on the big screen in years. (Well, technically I saw it on the little screen on Delta Flight 1768 from Seattle to Atlanta, which is pretty much the only way I see any movies these days…but, hey, at least the cookies and pretzels are free.) Philomena traces the heart-wrenching journey of a devout Irish woman (played by the incomparable Judi Dench) who sets out to find her long lost son, whom she was forced to give up for adoption as a teenager by nuns who kept her like a prisoner in a convent full of other unwed mothers in the 1950s. The film is based on a true story as detailed in Sixsmith’s book, The Lost Child of Philomena Lee, and is at once laugh-out-loud funny and excruciatingly sad.

How the Puppets from Fantastic Mr. Fox Were Made [Slide Show] With Haymoz’s drawings as a reference, the Mancunian puppet makers went to work. Sculptors began by fleshing out the designs into three dimensions using plastiline clay. The main animal puppets—the ones used for close-ups—were approximately 12 inches tall, and the human characters were slightly smaller; since they don’t share much screen time, the difference in scale wasn’t a problem. After the plastiline figure was approved by Wes—who directed this film remotely from his Paris apartment; Haymoz says that when he finally did visit the studio, it was like seeing Santa Claus—the sculptors removed a layer of clay equal to the thickness of the fur that was going to be applied to that particular area. Says Saunders, “It was kind of half science, half art, how you shrunk the character down so that when you added the hair to it, it would go back to the original volume.”

The 40 Best Stop-Motion Animated Movies of All Time This technique has been used since the dawn of cinema to bring objects to life and manufacture magical worlds. Before the days of CGI, it was a primary way to produce special effects, in classics from King Kong, to Jason and the Argonauts, to Star Wars. It’s called stop-motion. It’s rumored that the legendary cinema pioneer Georges Melies accidentally discovered it when his camera jammed once, and upon restarting it he noticed how everything slightly changed. Soon after, stop-motion films began appearing in Europe. What started as a novelty turned into an art form when artists with unique skill and vision began making their films utilizing it.
