Brave, Pixar, and a Wider Lens [Jun. 18th, 2012|05:17 am]

I wrote a new article concerning Brave recently. It delves into animation/Pixar history in general and has to due with the film's comparatively lukewarm reception. 

I know it’s a tad long, but it would up being a cumulation of a lot of things I’ve wanted to say about the animation film industry, so I think you’ll enjoy it or at least get a new perspective from it. :)

If I Worked at PIXAR... [May. 12th, 2012|04:05 pm]

Copy and pasted from my dA journal: http://queen-asante.deviantart.com/journal/If-I-Worked-at-PIXAR-301732137



I'm not really impressed with PIXAR's upcoming projects. Dinosaurs, the human mind, the Day of the Dead, blah blah blah. If they keep this up with lame ideas, we're gonna be seeing film after film like Cars. *shudders* If I worked at PIXAR, here would be some of my ideas for films:


1. Apartheid South Africa - - We learned about this topic in school and I was always fascinated by it. It didn't just affect Blacks in South Africa but every minority: Indians, Spanish, etc. It would be cool to see a film for kids on this subject. I've watched almost every film from Catch a Fire and Tsotsi to A Dry White Season and Invictus. Yet most films made on Apartheid South Africa is for adults and usually violent. Yes, it was a violent time period, and SA, tho free, is still recovering from the bloodshed. But I think it would be awesome for PIXAR to tackle such a crucial period in History and teach kids to be more aware of these things. For once, I'd like to see PIXAR make a serious historical film.

2. A kid-friendly film about the Holocaust- - I'm also fascinated by this tragic bit of history, esp. after reading :iconzipzap1313:'s stories on the subject. There have been a few kid's films like The Diary of Anne Frank and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. How cool would it be to see the first animated Holocaust film? Maybe it's too dark a topic for PIXAR, but since it looks like they're trying to do more dark stuff like Brave, the Holocaust is a good place to start.  It would be a good way to each kids about it before they learn about it in HS. I know it's not easy making a ''kid-friendly'' movie on such a dark tragedy, but it's worth a try. Now if only they can get Billy Crystal and Frank Oz to star in it, it'd be an A-list winner.

3. A film about Japan- - I know I know I sound biased when I say this, having lived in Japan for three years as a transfer student, but it just baffles me that PIXAR would be really good buddies with Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, and yet, they haven't made one film centered in Japan! They've done Australia, France, and more recently Scotland, but c'mon! What about Japan?

4. A Ghost Story- - I was watching paranormal stuff last night and it just hit me: Hey, PIXAR should make a ghost story! I've seen fun anime shows on the Paranormal but I'd love to see a CG film about ghosts. OK maybe not like The Nightmare Before Christmas or Coraline, but something along the lines of a family who moves into a haunted house, and maybe their pets experience the activity first-hand, and their owners don't believe them. Who here watches The Haunted on Animal Planted? C'mon I know there's some out there! Raise your hands! Well, a ghost story from the POV of the family's pets would be a spectacular idea! I don't know why PIXAR didn't think of it before!

5. A Fantasy- - I had this random idea for a story about a girl who is transformed into an owl. I don't know I've been watching too much Harry Potter, but it's just a thought.


So if YOU worked at PIXAR what would be some of your ideas? C'mon let's hear them!

The Art of Monsters, Inc. [Apr. 26th, 2012|05:26 pm]

I meant to post this AGES ago but got very busy. I bought this book on e-bay with my dad's account during the New Year's. It is an extremely rare art book and it is actually out of print in the States- it has been since 2003- but they still sell it in the UK and Japan. I got mine from Toyama City, Japan for about $54.00 from a very good seller named Mariko from Japan. It's brand new, hardcover, with gorgeous illustrations and concept art. There's very little text but some- all in Japanese, of course, with English translation (or rather vice versa).






Mariko sent me some chopsticks and Japanese cookies from the Japanese New Year. She's a very good seller, I would definitely buy from her again.







I photographed the whole book, but I'm just going to include my favorite pages:








For those who can't find the book, because it is very rare, here is a link to a safe download of a PDF file version.

New Monsters, Inc. Community! [Jan. 19th, 2012|03:16 pm]

Hello, my lovelies. I finally got around to it yesterday. Since [info]monstersinc and [info]monsters_inc were already taken, I came up with ''monstersinc2001'', ''pixars_monsters'', or ''pixarmonsterinc''. I thought something like ''mi'' or ''monstropolis'' would be too vague. I ended up settling on the first choice.

So here it is: [info]monstersinc2001.

PLEASE JOIN!

I need members to get the community started. I'm hoping it will be an active community, unlike monstersinc, which died in 2010, and recently ontd_pixar. I want ALL the entries to be members-locked to keep out spammers and trolls, so you MUST join in order to see the entries, even if you have no desire to post anything. If you know anyone who might be interested, please invite them! Tell your friends! Come and join the party!

Thanks, guys.
