The Pixar Experience: A Tribute to Pixar Animation

I want you to experience Pixar's films on deeper and more emotional level than that of the traditional "montage" or "tribute." I created this not only for Pixar fans but for film and animation enthusiasts in general; anyone who has never outgrown their inner child and sense of wonder.

Pixar, in my opinion, has created some of the most memorable animated films out there and can proudly stand alongside such Disney classics as The Lion King, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and more. 

A great story, memorable characters and brilliant compositions which linger even after the movie has finished; these are the components of great filmmaking and ones which Pixar has successfully woven into their films. 

This is simply me wanting to convey my passion for Pixar and its films with some of my favorite Pixar scores from Thomas Newman and Michael Giacchino. 

Since a very young age Pixar has held a special place in my heart, and I aspire to work there as an editor one day. Enjoy from DisneyDude

Paperman and the Future of 2D Animation

Animators and animation fans can see the future of 2D animation in this inside look of "Paperman", the animated short film that is now playing in front of "Wreck It Ralph". The behind-the-scenes featurette demonstrates some of the techniques used to combine 2D animation and 3D animation. The technique uses traditional hand drawn 2D animation by carrying the information with the 3D CG using a program dubbed "Meander" created by Eric Daniels.

"Paperman" director John Kahrs has described the process: "It's not like a texture map. It's just like painting on the surface of the CG. It acutally moves on a 2D layer that's driven by the CG."

John Kahrs goes on to describe the working process of animating: "...folds in the fabric, hair silhouettes and the like come from of the commited design decision-making that comes with the 2D drawn process. Our animators can change things, actually erase away the CG underlayer if they want, and change the profile of the arm."

2D animation has, for some time now, taken a backseat to 3D computer graphics but John Kahrs has stated that although he does not believe they are ready to do a feature length film using the technique that it is a direction that they are eventually going to move toward and that Disney believes there is a strong future ahead for this technology.

"Paperman" is one of the 10 animated shorts being considered for an Oscar at the next Academy Awards.

Sean Stoakes's curator insight, March 20, 2013 5:54 PM

the video discusses the way that animation has evolved and about the animation in the select short "paperman". It discusses the use of both traditional and CG animation into one project. that feature length films in this style are possible

Space travel can appear enchanting, as astronauts drift among the stars, marveling at sights never seen before by anyone, gazing down on Earth as a big blue marble.

"Gravity" is just one of a number of Nightmare Fuel movies out this fall. Robert Redford's new film, "All Is Lost," stars the actor as a lone sailor whose boat is damaged and must fight the vast ocean to stay alive. And "Prisoners" features one of the worst nightmares of any parent when two girls are kidnapped and the man believed to be their abductor won't reveal their location.

The Four Biggest Innovators in Animation | All That Is Interesting

The Four Biggest Innovators in Animation | All That Is Interesting | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it
These four animators helped shape and change animation throughout television and movie history.

 

"Émile Cohl was a French cartoonist and animator who is often referred to as “the father of the animated cartoon.” In 1907, Cohl began work at Gaumont, a motion picture studio who hired him as a scenarist, which is someone who came up with one-page story ideas for movies. It was between February and May of 1908 that Cohl made what is regarded as the first fully animated film: Fantasmagorie."

 

Read this story and more, watch the movies and have fun. It' really not today's mainstream, it's history and it's awesome :-)
