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.
Check out this story about illegal wage fixing in the animation industry. Even the bright colors of cartoons have a dark side!

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.
I’m Sorry everyone, for taking so long with this release. We were trying to get a new intro recorded but it just didn’t happen, so we are stuck momentarily with the original Secret Space Base Podcast intro. This won’t effect this episode because it was an amazing conversation with Ron Cole and well worth the wait. I hope everyone enjoys this and that it generates lot’s of comments and conversations. I really think this is one of our best episodes to date. So enjoy, as we tackle a very important and serious issue about the business called visual effects and animation!
I knew Frozen was a huge hit, but this is pretty amazing! A little boy with the powers to freeze like Elsa in Frozen!
Crazy, huh? :P
From 1986 a documentary about the Master of Stop motion animation “Aliens, Dragons, Monsters & Me“!
See the awesomeness of Ray Harryhausen!
Stare at the Amazing Ray Bradbury!
Shriek at the glory of stop motion animated creatures!
Oh the documentary gold from the 80’s!
We all know about the free 3d software called Blender. It actually is a very good alternative to high end 3d programs like Maya or Cinema 4d. I’ve used it from time to time and once you get the shortcut keys down you should be doing some amazing stuff with it. There is a huge user base and tons of tutorials for you on the internet as well as a plethora of books and videos out there. My wife sent me the following link. Check it out. You might be surprised.
With the current announcement that the studio that did the visual effects for the movie NOAH lost money on the contract and watching the following documentary about the state of the Visual Effects Industry I had to make a post. I’m outraged, upset, and just down right mad about what the movie industry is doing to the visual effects industry. I remember looking at issues of Starlog for hours just marveling at the visual effects shots and wanting to know how it was done and wanting to do that for a living. I’ve been working professionally in the animation industry for 15 years and, I can tell you, what I’m hearing about the visual effects industry is breaking my heart. As it is stated in the documentary, if something isn’t done there will be no more visual effects industry in the United States.
Please watch this in full! And support the people that make our blockbuster films special!
Behold the new trailer, and it looks like this is a sequel to the original 1954 Gojira!!
May can not come fast enough!
