Hi there! My name is Sydney, and I'm a crazy fan of all things animation. I love 2D, 3D, stop motion, and anything in between! CSSSA Animation 2014 represent!
My favorite studios are Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar, Dreamworks, Studio Ghibli, Moonbot, and LAIKA. I especially love Disney (including Disneyland, Disney World, etc.).

I also like SNK, Free!, Dangan Ronpa, No. 6, Hetalia, Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra, Teen Wolf, Sherlock, Broadway music/shows, and figure skating.

Every time this post comes around, I have to explain this. 

Watch Dennou Coil, the most underrated anime pretty much ever. 

  • Yes, this is the standard of animation throughout the series. 
  • It’s basically about kids with what’s essentially Google Glass: The Game. The whole world is affected by this game. Traffic lights, school, anything. 
  • It’s good in the beginning and gets really, really good by the end. 
  • Shows the vulnerabilities of children.
  • Well-written children in general. They fall under some tropes but they don’t suffer from the usual fallacies of writing children into series. 
  • And yeah, the filler episodes are really good. The whole series is worth watching. 

Reblogging as a reminder to myself

 wish this show was longer.

Concept art and animation panels for Treasure Planet 2

Before Treasure Planet was shown in cinemas, Thomas Schumacher, then president of Walt Disney Feature Animation, mentioned the possibilities of having direct-to-video releases for Treasure Planet as well as a television series. He stated that they already had “a story and some storyboards and concepts up and a script for what a sequel to [Treasure Planet] could be,” and that they also had a “notion” of what the series would be.

Director Jun Falkenstein and screenwriter Evan Spiliotopoulos began early development on Treasure Planet 2. In the sequel, Jim Hawkins and Kate, his love interest and classmate at the Royal Interstellar Academy, must team with Long John Silver to stop the villainous Ironbeard from freeing the inmates of Botany Bay Prison Asteroid. Willem Dafoe was set to voice Ironbeard. The sequel was canceled when Treasure Planet disappointed at the box office.

Some interesting Disney animation history popped up in my dashboard this morning. Artists on the project include:

  1. Jun Falkenstein (storyboard artist for Despicable Me, director of The Tigger Movie)
  2. Emil Mitev (Iron Giant, Road to El Dorado)
  3. Yarrow Cheney (Despicable Me 1 &2, Curious George — you really should check out his portfolio, wow!)
  4. Mike Inman (background painter for shows like Avatar: the Last Airbender, Scooby Doo reboots, Angry Beavers, Spider-Man and more)
  5. Ken Boyer (animator of the hyenas in The Lion King as well as dozens of television shows you probably recognize. Take a look at his portfolio!). 

Here are a few more images from the film / television series that never was.
