Cool Stuff: Le Royaume

Le Royaume (The King and the Beaver) is yet another gorgeously animated short from Gobelins that will have you wondering exactly how in the hell any group of people could be allowed to be that talented. In the short, a king presents a beaver with an axe so that so that it might build his majesty […]

Un tour de Manège is a beautiful short, full of fluid, luscious color that dances about your screen. In it, a young girl plays on a floating merry-go-round, when suddenly a wind causes the carousel to drift away the from the dock to which it was connected, separating the girl from her mother.

NYCC2010 NYAF2010: Day 3 Impressions

The third and final day of New York Comic Con had a relatively light schedule in terms of events to attend. However, with the North American premiere of the film Gundam 00: A wakening of the Trailblazer, it was not truly a light day in any other respect. Press Conference with Mardock Scramble author Tow […]

NYCC2010 NYAF2010: Day 2 Impressions

Day 2 at New York Comic Con was much more eventful and lively than Day 1. As the weekend had officially kicked off, the crowds were large and dense, especially in the artist alleys and showrooms. Lines for highly-anticipated panels such as Durarara!! and Young Justice wound far into the distance of the Javits Center […]

NYCC2010 NYAF2010: Day 1 Impressions

Friday was, unfortunately, fairly uneventful. From walking the floors of the show room to attending FUNimation’s sneak peek, very little actually happened. As a first-time con-goer, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, though what I got definitely wasn’t whatever that might have been. FUNimation Sneak Peek: The FUNimation sneak peak started late as there was […]

Cool Stuff: Bottle

Kirsten Lepore’s short, Bottle, is currently a finalist in the Vimeo Festival Awards. Separated by water, a sand and snow person build a friendship by exchanging bottled messages and other items. It was worthwhile and enjoyable for the sheer amount of work that went into it even though the punchline fell flat.  Go here to […]

Looking Back: The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack

Yesterday, I looked at the Cartoon Network series Chowder and its rocky history, both on and off-screen. Today, I’m tackling a fellow Cartoon Network show slated to end this month, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. While the show may not have always gotten the respect and recognition it deserved (as seen by Cartoon Network’s recent […]

Looking Back: Chowder

This month, two cartoons will have ended their runs permanently on the Cartoon Network. Chowder and The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack represent the beginning of an era to some and the end of one to others. Their relatively short lifespans have been marked by high drama, extreme office politics, and a chuckle here or there. […]

Cool Stuff: MakingOf speaks with "Despicable Me" screenwriters, Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul

MakingOf has an interview up with Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul as they discuss pitching ideas to financiers. What struck my fancy was their pitch style, which doesn’t include many visuals. Also, they sing. In the pitches. For more on their interesting approach, watch the video below.
