Joe Bowers shot breakdown

A great breakdown of some shots from Joe Bowers. Really neat to hear how Glen Keane would go over his drawings and always push them. Gave me an idea to try with a new shot I'm working on at home. Really awesome stuff!

More great reference

This is definitely a happier situation than the last video. If you look at the person breaking down in both there is a difference. It's really something amazing when you really look at them. I'll do a comparison detailing some differences between the two within the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned...

You are forgiven Sir.

This is another amazing clip for some amazing reference of a true breakdown. Not to mention great reference of someone who has to do what I would consider the hardest thing a person could do when talking to the murderer of his child. Sad story, amazing reference footage. Happy Monday!

Morning with Frankie

SO I bought some new camera gear and installed some custom firmware and thought it'd be fun to test out. All filming was done on my own and in about 2 hours. I know there are issues with colour grading and lighting but it was just a quick test and fun to do. Also I know there are continuity errors :P Hope ya like!

Sad story but amazing emotion

Its an obviously horrible thing this guy has gone through but these are the types of things we need to watch to get full passion and emotion from people. Absolutely amazing reference coupled with a horrible story.

Rango Animation Breakdown

Pretty cool montage of some of the Rango animation before and after rendering. Always love seeing this stuff. Especially when you're able to see it without motion blur. It gives you a chance to really look hard at the animation. Great movie BTW I highly recommend seeing it (IN HD) if you haven't already.

Reference people! Very important! Even to the God like 9 old men!

Keith Lango's sites are going dark...

Sad and good news today. I'm sure many of you know who Keith Lango is. He's announced today that his websites (all of them from the sounds of it) will be going dark and will not be updated. Its sad because well, I've been following this site for a loooooong time and it sucks to see it go. It is however good news that Keith is able to make a decision like this to better his life as I'm sure he's crazy busy. So thanks for all the great stuff you've posted over the years Keith and good luck! Read the post about it here...

Slug Invasion

Found this over at OnAnimation. Really fun short. Love how its innocent with the old lady, but hardcore with the blood and swears from the slugs. A nice contract between the two situations :)

Why we do what we do

Its funny that I came across this video today while waiting on a playblast at work. I've been doing some crazy hours lately and kind of getting down about how much time is spent putting all your hours, hard work and life into a few seconds of screen time. Then something awesome like this video comes along and reminds us why we do what we do. We love it and although it can sometimes be really hard to what you do in the big picture even though it feels like you're working on such a small part of that big picture, when you step back and look at all the things made possible by you and your coworkers you gain this sense of satisfaction and remember you're doing what you love. I'm very lucky to be doing what I love and have been very fortunate to meet and work with amazing people. So with all that said, if you're having a rough day and need to remember why it is you do what you do. Why you put up with the hours and why you put every bit of you into every shot. Just remember the feeling you get at the end of this video.

Star Wars Brisk commercial

Not too sure if this is for a re-release in 3d but if it is you can count I won't pay to see the Star Wars Franchise molested some more.
