This is part of the Trolls opening sequence. Concept art and fabrication by Me, AFX animation by Erik Tillmans and storyboards by Joel Crawford. Each asset was hand built with felt, paper and embroidery.
My process started with presenting an animated gif to directors, Mike Mitchell and Walt Dorhn. Painting and working with the animation tool in Photoshop allowed me to design fluidly. I evaluated the story boards to plan out camera movement and work out character action. I knew the camera needed to push in through the dead Troll atop the cage, so I designed the town path to compliment this movement. Next, I focused on the buildings and set dressing. Bubbly poo shapes felt appropriate for Bergentown, while my colors needed variation within the muted palette. The real challenge of this piece was to find the exact materials that reflected the tonal range in grays and browns. I reserved my blacks for the cage and full saturation for the Troll Tree as it represents happiness. The result was three separate backgrounds, six hero buildings that could be flipped and duplicated in interesting ways, three Troll Trees, cages, and various set dressing assets. Each asset was photographed separately, edited and composited. For each scrapbook peice, I would deliver a psd packet to Erik to animate.

Now we could have dedicated a post to Justin Timberlake’s stellar music career, but we at RTTP figured that there was something equally iconic that deserved its own ‘ode to’ while still keeping JT involved. And so we dedicate this post to the ever-changing creature that is - Justin Timberlake’s hair.
Early 2000 - Cornrows
JT was at the peak of his N*SYNC boy-band days; considered a heart-throb by many young teenage girls. We’d like to think his new found superstar status was the catalyst for trying something a little 'out of the ordinary’. Probably wishful thinking, JT maintains his whitest man alive mantle.
Late 2000 - Ramen Hair [pt. I]
Ah the ramen noodle hair phase. Curly on top. Dark underneath. Frosted tips. Perfection! This hairstyle spurred on a whole host of hilarious meme’s still around today
2001 - Sleek and Sophisticated
JT unveiled a more mature look - possibly foreshadowing his move into a solo career with a more mature sound. A small glimpse into what was to come in the future.
Early 2002 - Ramen, [pt. II]
Why JT, why?! You nearly had it and you let it all slip away again. I wonder if the return of this hairstyle was Brittney’s idea…
2004 - Au Naturale
Ah Justin, finally we’re beginning to see the man you truly are. This short, naturally coloured hairstyle represents the start of JT domination - suave and effortless, much like the main man himself.
Late 2006 - Shortaaaay
Go on wit ya bad self JT. Gone are the days of the curly ramen hair, Justin has finally come into his own and found a look that suits that beautiful bone structure of his. Girls hearts are melting worldwide.
Present - Mmmmm
Much like a fine wine, it all gets better with age. Besties with Jimmy Fallon, married to Jessica Biel, new album out and world tour under wraps. The man has it all. Some may say this is due to his immense talent, but we know better - it’s all in the hair, that sweet sweet hair…

'We'll all be there!' Lance Bass confirms NSYNC reunion and vinyl album re-release
The band announced a hiatus back in 2002. But it seems like that break is over for NSYNC, as Lance Bass recently revealed to Entertainment Tonight that the group is coming together for a reunion this year.
‘We’re doing something [special]. I don’t know if I can announce it yet,’ stated the Grammy nominated crooner, before spilling about some other big news about the band. 'We’re coming out with a really cool vinyl edition of our Christmas album because it’s coming up on the 20 years of that [1998 Home for Christmas] album,’ he gushed.
It also seems the guys are once again being recognized for their talents, with Lance stating 'we’re going to be getting our star on the [Hollywood] Walk of Fame this year at some point.’ Then he dropped the big news, affirming that 'we’ll all be there’ for the awards ceremony.

Woody Allen’s ‘Wonder Wheel’ Scores December Release (EXCLUSIVE)
“Wonder Wheel,” a drama set in Coney Island during the 1950s, will debut in limited release on Dec. 1, 2017. That pits it against “The Disaster Artist,” a comedy with James Franco about the making of the cult film “The Room.” It’s actually a pretty open period on the release calendar. Disney will launch “Coco,” an animated movie, on the weekend before “Wonder Wheel” opens. The weekend after “Wonder Wheel” lands will see the release of Guillermo Del Toro’s fantasy drama “The Shape of Water,” but many films seem to be steering clear of December. That likely has a lot to do with “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” which hits theaters on Dec. 15.
Amazon Studios is distributing “Wonder Wheel,” having previously worked with Allen on last year’s “Cafe Society.” That comedic drama went on to make $43.8 million globally. “Wonder Wheel’s” cast includes Jim Belushi, Juno Temple, Justin Timberlake, and Kate Winslet. A logline for the film says that it will contain “larger-than-life characters, lovers, infidelity, and gangsters.” It’s Winslet’s first time working with Allen. She was previously tapped for 2005’s “Match Point,” but had to drop out for family reasons.
