I haven't yet seen the Croods, but my four year old's pester power means a trip to the cinema is inevitable this Easter. When I saw the first trailer a number of months ago, however I was left a little cold and felt little compulsion to make the effort to see it. It seemed rather predictable, not particularly lovable characters and no real 'hooks' to grab me. I did change my mind completely a few weeks later when Chris Sanders started releasing his story boards for the Croods. They are nothing short of stunning.
I loved the first slice of 'Despicable Me'. And it’d be an understatement to say I am excited about this new trailer and release of ‘Despicable Me 2’ this summer! On the site, you can see some of their 3D turntables of the CG car they designed that is amphibious, there’s also some concept art on there too.
If you live in the UK and watch television from time to time, you might find yourself familiar with the BBC… well to be honest, unless you live in a cave and aren’t aware of the technological progression of the western world over the last 100 years, you will definitely have heard of the BBC.
So, the time is nearly upon us to open our doors to all you budding VFX artist wannabes to show you what we’re made of!

For some reason I’ve come over all Disney this week
We reckon that this is quite simply on of the most excellent (and unique) animated shorts you’ll have seen in a while!
An animation by Patrick Smith, created entirely on the back of a pre written score by musician Karl Von Kries. This short shows a mad scientist that perfects a cloning process of a small grey population of people. Who in turn are edible to the larger, superior Masked folk. The little grey clones have a trick up their sleeve though, so make sure you watch until the end!
The animated short has won a number of awards in it’s time, and if you haven’t seen it yet – click away
I’ll probably get in to trouble if I say that EVERY young girl dreamed of having their very own Prince Charming slip on the glass slipper and whisk her away from a life of boredom, ill-treatment and endless cleaning, but it would be fair to say that quite a few girls grew up getting lost in this particular fantasy, and it would appear that Emma Watson is one of them!
Happy International Women’s Day!
