Laff Trakk Animation POV at Hersheypark

Take a ride on Laff Trakk, a new spin on an old favorite! Laff Trakk is the first indoor, spinning, glow-coaster in the United States. Coming to Hersheypark Summer 2015! To learn more, visit...
Marc Morrell's insight:

This is something that my wife will like. The preview of the ride, since it hasn't been completely built yet, is an animation made to look like you are sitting in the front seat of the coaster. This ride comes out in the Summer of 2015 at Hersheypark, PA.

How to Animate Your Dragon - Technologizer

How to Animate Your Dragon - Technologizer | Cartoons for Kids | Scoop.it
“Technologizer How to Animate Your Dragon Technologizer Mr. Peabody and Sherman, the computer-animated movie which DreamWorks Animation released in March is–of course–the tale of a dog and a boy who go traveling back in time.”
Marc Morrell's insight:
I can't say enough about all the little things that go into making a really great movie like How to Train Your Dragon 2. When you think about almost 400 TB of data rendered over millions of hours, and almost 500 animators using Apollo on Red Hat Linux, with 100 GB of RAM on Intel Xeon processors, it just boggles the mind how DreamWorks is going to produce 13 movies within 4 years. HTTYD2 is the best movie of the year, in my opinion. If you are a fan of animation, you notice all the fine detail that makes this movie great, and you'll understand why you'll cry when Hiccup's Dad touches his Mom's face after believing she was dead all those years Hiccup was growing up. You are completely lost in the story, because the characters have become real.

The Man Who Created Bugs Bunny - Do You Remember | Cartoons for Kids | Scoop.it
A salute to Mel Blanc, the legendary voice of Porky Pig, Daffy Duck and Tweety Bird, among thousands of others.
Marc Morrell's insight:

Mel Blanc WAS Bugs Bunny. No doubt about it. Mel created the persona. The character design was done by Warner Bros., and went through many different alterations over the years. My favorite years were the Chuck Jones years. Mel was the true pioneer for all voice actors.
