good design

If you need to watch one animated penguin movie, watch Surf’s Up.

It’s the best written penguin movie, has fun character design, a nice soundtrack, and a pretty dang impressive environment/lighting/rendering considering it was made in 2007. The animation team needed to make a new program to create their wave and water physics to work, and another to give the cinematography a mockumentary look. 

It’s a little gem a lot of people overlook because of the silly premise and the fact that it was released by Sony Animation only a year after Open Season..


Speaking of awesome looking trailers from previously disappointing movie franchises.

So I saw the trailer for the upcoming Sony Animation movie, “The Emoji Movie”.

All I gotta say is this:

At the end of the trailer, when the cupcake emoji was about to say that this is a bunch of crap, those are the words that perfectly describe this trailer.

It’s a bunch of crap.

The movie will be crap.

The comments are even disabled!


Well, nice to know the main character in this teaser is as enthusiastic about this movie as I am.
