The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore « Safegaard – Movie Theater

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore « Safegaard – Movie Theater | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Inspired, in equal measures, by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, “Morris Lessmore” is a story of people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favor. Morris Lessmore is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story. Using a variety of techniques (miniatures, computer animation, 2D animation) award winning author/ illustrator William Joyce and Co-director Brandon Oldenburg present a new narrative experience that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals. “Morris Lessmore” is old fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.

“The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore” is one of five animated short films that will be considered for outstanding film achievements of 2011 in the 84th Academy Awards ®.

Film Awards Won by “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore”

3DXchange5 Preview - Import Motion Builder Characters to iClone

Reallusion will be releasing its next super weapon - 3DXchange 5 in early Q2 of 2012. One of the most significant features is the capability to bring in any bi-ped character from other 3D software like DAZ4, Maya, MotionBuilder, 3ds Max (Standard bone, Character Studio), and Blender. 3DX5 will also be able to bring in human motions from FBX and BVH mocap files.
Not only this, but to complete the animation pipeline- 3DX5 will also be able to export characters and motions to most 3D tools and game engines through FBX and BVH formats. This will open up a whole new world for iClone users and content developers, providing them with more animation freedom to seamlessly work with the entire 3D animation community. ...

 

That's some breaking news :-)

Slug Invasion « Safegaard – Movie Theater

Slug Invasion « Safegaard – Movie Theater | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Movie of the week:

 

Bachelor film project 2012 from The Animation Workshop.
Story:
As morning dawns on a Norwegian suburb, a detachment of killer-slugs, led by the notorious Sergeant Slug, prepare for a heads-on attack on a small garden — their objective? A juicy, delicious flower on the other end, deep within a flowerbed.
A new conscript and his close friend, a medical officer, both suit and join in the massive charge into the garden. But as the slugs emerge into the exposed field, they stand head to head with a diligent, elderly lady, hell-bent on keeping her garden pristine and safe from pests.
As the two sides clash, it is as the saying goes: All’s fair in hunger and war!

It´s Brilliant @safegaard

One Beer - Banned Cartoon

This is a banned cartoon from the banned episode, Elephant Issues. It's about the dangers of alcohol. This cartoon was only shown once in America, when it first aired, afterwards, it was never shown again on TV in America in later channels like Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. I can't say if it was banned in other countries like Canada or Mexico.

 

WOW Youtube is banning it at as well but it´s still on Youtube - just go directly to:

DVICE: Look Ma, no hands! Self-driving BMW flies down the Autobahn | Machinimania | Scoop.it

We've seen plenty of concepts for self-driving cars, but now BMW has thrown their hat into the ring. Best of all, instead of showing off their car in the relative safety of a test track, they've gone for one of the most challenging driving environments in the world, the speed limit free German Autobahn.
