Anime director Satoshi Kon has reportedly died at the age of 47. He was the man behind such innovative titles as Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers, Millennium Actress, and Paprika. Farewell, Mr. Kon- the anime industry just won't be the same without you.

27.04. Аниме «Босоногий Ген» в Дни дизайна и экологии [27 Apr 2010|12:24am]


27 апреля, во вторник в 19.00 состоится просмотр аниме-фильма «Босоногий Ген» в малом зале Центра дизайна ArtPlay (ул. Нижняя Сыромятническая, д. 5/7).

В 1983 году фильм «Босоногий Гэн» получил приз имени Офудзи Нобуро на фестивале «Mainichi Film Concours». Фильм по праву называют одним из важнейших когда-либо снятых анимационных фильмов.

Это аниме-фильм по одноимённой манге Кэйдзи Накадзавы, повествовавшей о жизни 6-летнего мальчика Гена и его семьи во время и после атомной бомбардировки Хиросимы.

Просмотр проходит в рамках Дней дизайна и экологии в Москве и в Дни памяти о Чернобыльской катастрофе.

Just name them! [23 Feb 2010|09:26am]

Hi all,

I came across a pic that I made in Cannes 4 years ago.

This is a painted wall. One can see it (I hope one can still see it) close to the Town Hall.

I have counted very carefully, there are 34 personages.

Anyone will find Charlie Chaplin or Rabbit Roger. How about the others?

Up is now officially the first computer animated film to be nominated for a Best Picture academy award, and the second animated film of any medium to reach this feat, the only other being Beauty and the Beast.

[ mood | hopeful ]

Hi there, new member, hoping y'all will be able to help.

About a year ago, I encountered a jaw-droppingly gorgeous 'trailer' for an animated project that an independent possibly French (the site was French-language, I think?) animator was working on. The theme was Norse mythology, and I can't remember anything about its title, the animator, zilch.

I remember it was 2D/traditional, cel-painted-style, and dark and fluid and just... amazing.

Can anyone help, or direct me to a place that might be able to?

FOUND IT YAY --> link is here, pilot animation can be found in the sidebar :)

the mysterious explorations of jasper morello [03 Nov 2008|12:00pm]

i just wanted to post a link to one of the oscar-nominated animated shorts - the mysterious explorations of jasper morello. using sillouette animation, it is a dark, steampunk-inspired tale. it is about half an hour long, so set a little time aside to watch it! i think it is gorgeous.

Coraline (info and icons) [08 Sep 2008|07:15pm]

Neil Gaiman's novella Coraline will appear as an animated stop-motion fantasy film. It's directed by Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas) and coming out on theaters February 6, 2009.

Summary: The story of a young girl who unlocks a mysterious door in her new home, and enters into an adventure in a parallel reality. On the surface, this other world eerily mimics her own life—though much more fantastical. In it, Coraline encounters such off-kilter inhabitants as the morbidly funny Miss Forcible and Miss Spink, and a counterfeit mother—who attempts to keep her. Ultimately, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to get back home.
