Okay ladies and gentleman - I would love to hear your opinion (good or bad) on the recent comment made by Lino Disalvo (Head of Animation for the film Frozen) regarding women being difficult to animate. Please feel free to send me any comments or general feedback!

The comment is also included below if you have not had an opportunity to read it yet. 

"Historically speaking, animating female characters are really, really difficult, ’cause they have to go through these range of emotions, but they’re very, very — you have to keep them pretty and they’re very sensitive to — you can get them off a model very quickly. So, having a film with two hero female characters was really tough, and having them both in the scene and look very different if they’re echoing the same expression; that Elsa looking angry looks different from Anna being angry."

Anonymous asked: what are some good sites to look at for disney news?

For just overall news I’m assuming? 

  • Rotoscopers - These guys aren’t Disney specific, but they cover Disney quite a bit, and in general just offer a great variety with what news they offer. 
  • Disney Parks Blog - This is Disney run, and it’s good for construction updates and photos for both Disneyland and Disney World 
  • Mice Chat - More general and widespread Disney news (also good for the international parks).

Those are probably the three I would recommend the most as they tend to be more fact based, as well as quick with news.  

Let me know if that wasn’t at all remotely helpful! 

Anonymous asked: have u ever done the college program?

Great question - although I apologize to my followers as this isn’t exactly a news update. But I actually haven’t done the college program as of yet, however, I have been accepted for the Fall 2013 program at Walt Disney World! 

Hopefully come August I’ll be a bit more qualified to answer that in depth. In the mean time, if you’re interested in finding out more about the program, I encourage you to sort of root around tumblr, as there are a lot of great DCP blogs out there!

I hope that was vaguely helpful! 

Anonymous asked: Do you know anything about this 20,000 Leagues deal?

Hello anon! I unfortunately only know a bit about the potential remake of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, however I will do some research and digging around to see if I can uncover any additional or more substantial information.

But, what I do know, is that Disney has not actually green lighted the project yet, so there’s no official word as to when production would start or any anticipated release date.  It has been mentioned as of late (which is, I suspect, why you’re asking) that the Australian government has offered a pretty hefty incentive of over $20 million to encourage Disney to film in the country.  But again, Disney hasn’t actually announced that they will be doing a remake, so that might just be wishful thinking on Australia’s part.  

Like I said, I’ll do some digging and hopefully I’ll be able to do an update with a bit more info later down the line! 

Thank you for your question!
