It’s opening day for Toy Story 3!
We are all really excited to see this film. It’s currently sitting at an amazing 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
So go out and see it and let us know what you think!
We sat down with Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois to talk about How to Train Your Dragon. Chris and Dean have long been a creative team; their brief history includes writing together on Mulan, writing/directing Lilo and Stitch, and writing/directing How to Train Your Dragon.
The two were gracious enough to spend time speaking with us about creative decision making and articulate their thought processes while making a film. It was very inspirational to hear such talented people discuss how they bring their visions to life. We talked with them about story structure, design, cinematography, character animation, directing, and much, much more. A lot of very talented people came together to create the film, and these wonderful directors are never shy about handing out credit! Among many others, they discussed the amazing contributions of Simon Otto (Head of Character Animation) and the famed cinematographer, Roger Deakins. You can find a larger crew list here to search for any other names they bring up.
The promo video for our new podcast is up! We interviewed Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois about their latest film, How to Train Your Dragon. This is a really great interview, and we hope you guys get excited for it!
UPDATE: The podcast is now available and can be found here.
Oh yeah, and we started a vimeo channel.
We will still be uploading videos to youtube (like the above promo), but having both channels keeps our options open. Plus, we like the embedded vimeo player better than youtube’s.
So check out the promo and then come back on Monday to hear the whole podcast! Oh, and feel free to repost the promo and help us spread the word!!!
