CartoonBrew on the ball

  • by

If you weren’t reading CartoonBrew this week you missed some great posts. So here’s a shout-out to them and a chance for you to go back and see what you’ve missed.

First they linked to the new O-Meon podcast. This episode features some great interviews with animation illuminaries at the recent Annie awards. Included are Brad Bird, Tom Kenny and Nick Park.

Next they show some great artwork from the REMIXING THE MAGIC exhibit at Gallery 1988 that remixes Disney classics through the eyes of some of today’s best artists. 

They also discovered a great interview with John Canemaker on NPR’s Talk of The Nation. The Topic of Discussion – The recent Oswald the Lucky Rabbit trade.

Oswald is still selling Toys in Japan, so it won’t be long before we see his appearance at the International Toy Fair. But in the meantime CartoonBrew linked to examples from this years show. Including these from the Upcoming Disney release ‘Meet The Robinsons‘ and Pixar’s ‘Cars‘. If I wasn’t broke already, these toys would definitely find a spot on my shelves.

Then to top the week off they have this little trio of juicy animation treats. First, the have a roundup of comments from people who saw the extended Cars clip that ran at Wondercon. Second a link to an interview with Pixar director Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo). And today was the third juicy link to a great lesson in storytelling from story artist Jenny Lerew and how it applies to Disney’s Lady And The Tramp and Pixar’s The Incredibles.

Thanks guys, keep up the great work and I’ll keep reading you. I’ve really learned so much from your posts recently.
