The Princess and the Frog
will be out on DVD next month! Under the cut is "Friends on the Other Side," DVD quality. It's probably my favorite song, but this movie has grown on me so much since I saw it. I also recommend the reprise, but that involves some major spoilers for the end of the movie.
Also under the cut is a clip from the movie The Secret of Kells
, which I watched the other day (you might know it as "that other movie nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Oscars"). Ohmygodohmygod I LOVED IT. Gorgeously animated with such a unique style that really fit the movie's concept, with fantastic characters and a wonderful story. I've heard talk about a US release, but being so close to the actual Oscars, I'm guessing it'll be a limited one. But if you get a chance to see it, PLEASE DO!( That's an echo, gentlemen.Collapse )
I'm thinking about ditching Art History classes for a little and taking Digital Animation I next year. I need both for my Digital Media major, but I'm almost definitely going to be in school for an extra year, so what the hell. If I was actually good at drawing, I would love to be an animator, but I don't think I have the discipline for it. I would also kill to be on the story team at an animation studio, but I have no idea how to get into that.
I've been pretty busy these days, but the snow keeps messing my schedule/attempt at a structured routine up. I really need to do research for one of my professors, I haven't seen her in almost two weeks and I feel awful about it.
I hope you are all doing well! I apologize for my extremely lame commenting skills.
