I used to like reading cartoon brew. Maybe it was when Jerry Beck was part of the site. Now, admittedly I read it much like looking at a tabloid on a news stand at the grocery store. Its very entertaining. It’s really become quite a negative site though. Amid, in all seriousness, whats up?. I do like to reading strong opinions, but lately, there seems to be something about many of the posts that lend themselves to a sort of bitterness. Maybe its me but I do find there to be a lot of articles that tend to dig at a particular studio…I know negativity sells though…
Maybe the name of the site would be better called Cartoon Concoction.
Just my opinion. Come on guys, we are making cartoons..
The Good Dinosaur came out this weekend. I had the good fortune to direct the promo work on the film which was a blast.
I’m looking to continue the tradition of doing an animator roundtable with the animators.
If you want to hear this or something else please show your support in the comments section.
Go support animation and see the film. Its a great film with incredible animation and stunning set and effects work.
I recently had the good luck to run into my pal Carlos Baena. Carlos and I worked on many a film at Pixar and taught together a few times. Carlos is such a passionate animator and film maker. I was so happy to see him follow his dream to make a short film. He is currently working on a really great short film call La Noria. They have been in production for a while and are looking for support to finish the film.Hope you enjoy the interview. Excuse the informality of it.
Here are a few links to the film and short making of videos.
