Dark Earth


 

I’ve been waiting for this to hit the internet and I’m very excited to support the craftsmen and filmmakers behind this production.  I’ve been wanting a movie like this for a long time and some of the shots already look amazing!  I can honestly say that I have faith in the crew of  Peter Montgomery, Norman Yeend, Kent Burton, Nick Hilligoss, and Ron Cole.  Extremely talented animators and visual effects artists, all!  If anyone can pull off an entertaining visually stunning adventure sci- fi movie it is this amazing crew. Plus the added roll of Kevin Conner, director of some of my favorite films growing up, The Land That Time Forgot, The People That Time Forgot, Warlords of Atlantis, and At the Earths Core gives credibility ( and star power) that this project is for real and will move forward.  If you are a fan of “Dynamation”, stop motion animation, practical effects, and 80’s style visual effects movies (yes, like even Star Wars) then you are going to want to support this movie!

Dark Earth is Arriving!

Holy Crap! I can’t wait to see this!  I hope it gets a US Release.  I can not stress enough the importance of bringing back stop motion animation to adventure / fantasy / Sci fi Films.  There is something about them that is magical, and and as Ray Harryhausen always used to say “Dream like”, that we lose with CGI.

Graphic Resume

I’ve created a graphic resume, something a little bit different than the average run of the mill text on paper resume.  I am trying to go for a retro 60’s -70’s feel, not sure that I succeeded but hey it’s the beta version. Just thought I would share since it’s been a while since I posted my own work up here.

It’s one of those times when you just slap your face and shake your head. Then praise the creativity of people on YouTube.

Dr. Who Animated

I saw this today and was giddy with joy that some one actually did it in a fun Cartoon Network sort of style. Well played sir! Well played.

Godzilla Smashes The American Box Office!

 

 

Godzilla 2014

Godzilla 2014

Out performing what analyst had suspected, Godzilla 2014, is running away with this weekends box office, and well deserved because the movie is nothing short of awesome!  Being a fan of Kaiju movies from Godzilla to Gamera to Pacific Rim I can honestly say that the latest Godzilla movie is, if not the best, one of the best Kaiju movies ever made. With a reported budget of 160 million it looks like opening weekend will take in a whopping 93 million! This is what BoxOffice.com is reporting:

Opening Weekend: $93,205,000 [est.] |

Total Domestic Gross: $93,205,000 [est.] |

Worldwide Gross: $113,205,000 [est.]

I guess we can expect more Godzilla on the way!  I predict that we will have an announcement by the end of the month (if not the end of the week) that another Godzilla movie is on the way.  Excitement abounds!  I scream like a little girl at a Justin Bieber concert! Godzilla…..Ahhhhhhhh! (end of the Hanna Barbera Godzilla song).

At least I can hope for an appearance of Megalon and Jet Jaguar in the next movie. Yeah, not gonna happen, I’m sure.
