Bits Journal #2

Again, this is sort of an experiment for my blog… It's not necessarily news articles, but just bits of news that I feel don't need full articles based on each. It's like a collection of thoughts, really. Almost like my "tidbits" stuff, but done in a much different way. Anyways…

Bits Journal #1

This will be a change of pace, not like the usual "Tidbits" pieces I do. It's a new format I'll be experimenting with, an unorganized collection of thoughts. Basically animation news that I hadn't covered that I wanted to, but not in individual posts. Bear with me here…

This year's first wide-release animated film opens on Friday, the derivative-looking The Nut Job. It's a lower budget Canadian/Korean production directed by Pete Lepeniotis, an animator who worked on films like Toy Story 2 and Fantasia 2000. It looks like a run-of-the-mill kids film, but…

'Disney Infinity' in Progress… (Part 2)

I'm almost done with the starter pack, actually, though that's nothing considering all the toys and play sets out there. Currently, I plan on getting at least one play set before winter break ends. I'm thinking either Toy Story or Cars; the space fan in me wants the former, the race fan in me wants the latter.

The Party is Coming

Party Central, a Monsters University short film, was set to be attached to what was going to be this year's Pixar event, The Good Dinosaur. That film was delayed to the autumn of next year, so it left us asking… What will happen to the short film?
