Smurfs 2 Trailer


Just out 4 hours ago! The new trailer for the smurtf! Congratz to all of my freinds that are currently working on it!!!!!

The hobbit: an unexpected journey (hfr imax 3d) just changed film forever....

"The hobbit: an unexpected journey" (hfr imax 3d) is un UNEXPECTED VISUAL JOURNEY... The VFX are something that you have never seen before, that will change film forever and that you will see a lot more in the future. The film story is....bha... However, WETA just created a new kind of film and it is IMPRESSIVE. Watching this I had the same feeling that I had when I watched the first Matrix; I understood that after this picture ,film, was going to change (for me, "the matrix" radically changed the action genere for ever). As soon as directors and viewers will learn how to use this new medium things will change, and in a good way. I want to congratualate all of my friends that had the luck to work on this "game changing" film. You guys just pushed the bar A LOT HIGHER...

Freddie Ravel - Tune UP to Success - Music Applied to Life and Artists


This is not strictly animation but I believe that animation is an art form, and as it is so, it feeds on every other kind of art that there is.
(I can't wait to put these ideas on practice on the graph editor!!!)

"Rise of the guardians" Very well done


Yesterday I went to watch "Rise of the guardians". It was a Saturday night screening at the 21:30(9:30 P.M.)show and the theater was full of kids. Well, it was a very nice screening with an incredible responsive audience. Everybody was laughing a jumping together with the film and everybody enjoyed the show. This means that it worked for its target audience.

As for me I found the film visually well done. The animation was PHENOMENAL (The first sequence is just perfect), the modeling of Jack Frost has A LOT OF CHARACTER, the effects were amazing and overall the technical quality of the film was very, very high. I am very impressed by the quality that Dreamworks is producing these days. The story lacked of something... Like a song without a base line, but the characters were strong and consistent.

 The only bad notes that I can find are about: The character of the "greyhound" was just off the mark and SPOILER ALERT the "Tooth  delivery" sequence was animated a bit too cartoony (Still, amazing animation work with great acting and spot on timing of movements...just it was not consistent with the animation style of the entire film)...

I really really want to congratulate everyone that worked on it. Well done ppl! These r the films that make kids (and adults) want to be part of this magic industry.

P.S. Finally Dreamworks makes very good human characters!!!
