GUYS LETS SUPPORT ABDUL NADADI, an animator from Ghana who has created a new animation entitled Orisha’s Journey. His animation is going to be shown at the Hiroshima International Animation Festival in Japan (21st August 2014-25th August 2014)

For more information:

Follow him on tumblr abdulndadi

An interview he did with the SVA alumni blog

An article by discover african cinema

(these are all his images/animation)

Reblogging because representation matters.  And, I really hope they CAPTION this movie for deaf and hard of hearing people (and release it on Blueray or DVD in the U.S.) so I can watch it.

Oscar nominees Best Animated Feature 2014

Earlier today this article was brought to my attention, in which it becomes clear that some of the Academy voters have little to no respect for the animation industry. They openly admit not having watched the nominated films and/or claiming that animated films are for kids, so they didn’t vote. Even the ones shown in the article that did vote barely motivated their choice.

I find this extremely disrespectful of the animators who poured their heart and soul into making these movies, only to have their work be pushed aside without a second glance by the judges of one of the most prominent and well known film awards out there. As an aspiring animator, I am deeply insulted.

Please note that in this post I am expressing no opinion on whether Frozen should have won or not. I think it’s a wonderful film, just as all the other nominees. I am simply saying that we deserve better.

What they did is disrespectful to the creators of every single one of these films, even Frozen. By barely motivating their choice, they make it look like they voted for Frozen simply because of Disney’s status in the industry. Because it’s Disney, and it made a lot of money, so it had to be at least somewhat good. To me it seems like some of the voters just defaulted to voting for the Disney film, and nobody likes to win by default.

Don’t get me wrong, I too have been guilty of loving Disney simply because it’s Disney, but there is so much more beautiful animation out there and it deserves to be taken into consideration. And if Frozen won, it should have won because the majority of the voters thought it was the best film, not because part of the voters was too lazy to even watch the nominated films.

yep

I love the Croods so much, Eep is amazing, Ernest & Celestine is awesome, French (and french speaking) animation deserves to be more seen and this one was so cute… despicable me 2 was funny and cool and The Wind Rises…. come on: Miyazaki…: do I really need to say more ?

animation is awesome and deserve waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more recognition

“Animating female characters are extremely difficult. They have to go through a range of emotions, and having a film with two female characters and building distinguishing aspects was hard.” — Michael Lee on animating Frozen, explaining why they removed all the female supporting characters and replaced them with men.

Yeah, I call bullshit.

Whaaaat. Please tell me this quote is fabricated.

“I love how Brother Bear has no definite heroes or villains. It’s a story grounded on human interaction, and the goods and evils that are innate in each one of us.”

AT least I find someone mentioning this!
I mean most critics I just saw on the internet, either positive or negative didn’t mention this.
Disney tend to have the reputation to be ultra manicheist, with obvious villain and heroes who never do any serious harm…. and then there is this movie!!!!

Text is:

ARTHUR: arrange the Marriage !

ODETTE (fortunately I know her name in the original version because in the french version her name is Juliette (Juliet)): Wait!

ARTHUR:What? You’re all I ever wanted… You’re beautiful!

ODETTE: Thank you… but what else ?

ARTHUR:What else ?

ODETTE: Is beauty all that matters to you ?

ARTHUR: I…uh.. what else… is..there..?

Ellipse to a scene later without Odette

The guy with white hair whose name I’ve forgotten is tal king to Arthur:

What else is there?! You should write a book… “how to offend women in 5 syllables or less”

What movie was this? I think I need to rewatch it. I’m thinking Swan Princess.

It Is the Swan Princess.

(I didn’t put this in epilepsy warning because it seems not to be really flashy I hope it’s ok, I’ve tagged it gifs though!)

I want to make a kids cartoon starring adorable demons learning about the unholy power of friendship.

And the equally unholy but far more harmful and not remotely pleasant power of abuse and abuse culture and how to recognize it and prevent it.

Because really we need kids shows about recognizing and responding to abuse.

Please do it.
