2011. Could this be the year?

Over the weekend I was lucky enough to finally see Tangled. I took my 2 year old and not knowing what to expect (as far as violence and story for a toddler) we went anyways. The movie was absolutely awesome. It was a great story and it totally reminded my of old school Disney. Lots of action, song and dances, silly thugs an evil Mother and the animation. I noticed that they're really pushing 3D to the limits of what is accomplished with 2D. The crazy poses, lots of squash and stretch and the real essence of 2D animation. Since John Lasseter took over the Disney story department they've made some amazing movies! Bolt, Princess and the Frog, Enchanted and now Tangled. I was surprised (and happy) they decided to do Princess and the Frog in 2D (obviously there were 3D elements throughout the movie) but none-the-less an awesome movie. If you haven't seen Tangled yet, go! It was a great movie and I can't wait for the DVD to come out with all the special features.

2011 there are a ridiculous amount of animated movies coming out this year. Rio, Rango, Cars 2, Kung Fu Panda 2 and Gnomeo and Juliet. I'm planning on seeing all of them! In other news, I'm still looking for an Animation Job and began working on new shots for my reel. It's just hard to find extra time.... my goal is to have something done by July so stay tuned. Till next time...
