Pogo hat heute gleich zwei neue Remixe rausgehauen, erstens obiger “Boo Bass” bestehend aus Monsters Inc-Samples, in dem er mal was halbwegs neues macht — und dann noch das unglaublich langweilige Sugarella.
Irgendein italienisches Fashionlabel namens Bossini hat eine Toy Story-Kollektion auf dem Markt gebracht und ich will so einen Slinky-Dackel-Schal! Alle Klamotten aus der Serie gibt’s auf Facebook.
John Lasseter, Chef-Animator von Pixar, zeigt seine Hawaii-Hemden-Sammlung. Aus dem Artikel zum Video vom San Francisco Chronicle:
John Lasseter, as Pixar fans know, wears Hawaiian shirts every day. A couple of years ago, when I was at Pixar for another story, I heard Lasseter casually mention that he organizes his shirts by subject. I made a request earlier this spring to see the “Toy Story” and “Cars 2″ director’s filing system first-hand, and was shocked when he not only agreed, but said it was OK if I bring a video camera.
Which is how I found myself inside a two-time Oscar winner’s closet, filming him with a Flip cam I had never operated before, while asking questions like “Do you feel completely disoriented wearing long-sleeved shirts?” And then the April Fool’s jokes started …
Tolles Posting von Pixar-Chef John Lasseter auf TheOnion.com: „Jesus Christ, we’ve got you dummies eating up this works-of-cinematic-beauty shit like your miserable little lives depended on it.“
Pixar is bulletproof, assholes. We can put out any old piece of shit that perfectly examines universal themes of love and friendship and just walk away with record box-office numbers. In fact, I think I’ll have my award-winning design team get cracking on an anthropomorphic piece of shit right now. Yes. Shit. I’m talking actual human feces here, folks. We’ll give it eyes and limbs, and—I don’t know—call it Danny Caca. Brad Bird can make a story about how it got lost on its way to the sewage treatment facility. Its best friends are a used sewage-logged tampon and a hypodermic needle. Then we’ll just sit back and watch the receipts come in.
Yeah, it’ll have heart and depth, but still, it’s going to be a talking piece of shit. Kids won’t flush for years because of it.
Ivan Guerrero hat nach Ghostbusters 1954, Raiders of the lost Ark 1951, Forrest Gump 1949, Empire Strikes back 1950und The Avengers 1952 nun einen fiktiven Trailer für Pixars „Up“ aus dem Jahr 1965 rausgehauen. Die Reihe halte ich ja für eins der schönsten Remix-Onlineprojekte überhaupt. Hier eine Frame für Frame-Analyse des Fake-Trailer:
What if… Walt Disney produced “Up” in the 1960s?
Ah, the swinging 60s. It was a time when films were dominated by flying automobiles and flying nannies. It was also a time when live-action Disney films flourished and spawned such hits as “The Love Bug”, “The Absent-Minded Professor”, and “The Monkey’s Uncle”. In an alternate reality, this era also saw the production of the high-flying adventure-comedy, “Up!”. Starring Spencer Tracy and Kirk Douglas, “Up!” followed the oddball escapades of the elderly widower, Carl Fredricksen, and his earnest band of misfits as they traveled through the wilds of South America. Produced two decades after “Saludos Amigos” and “The Three Caballeros”, the film continued the Disney tradition of telling stories set against Latin American backdrops. […]

Das spanische „Blog of Chibiboto“ hat ein paar Fake-Poster für „Nemo 2“ gepostet mit jeder Menge Fisch in Öl.

Pixar-Mitarbeiter Rodrigo Blaas hat sich von seinem Job eine einjährige Auszeit gegönnt, um diesen mehrfach ausgezeichneten Gruselanimationskurzfilm zu produzieren. Gibts über Weihnachten bei Vimeo online zu sehen, Snip von der Website zum Film:
Alma is Rodrigo Blaas’ first short film as a director. Originally from Spain, Rodrigo Blaas has worked in animation for more than ten years, in Spain and in the United States.
Seizing the possibility of directing his first independent short film, Rodrigo Blaas asked some of the best artists in their field to take part in this independent project: French animator Bolhem Bouchiba, character designer Carlos Grangel and Sergio Pablos, ArtDirector Alfonso Blaas, music composer Mastretta and sound designer Tom Myers.
From Toy Story to WALL-E, Pixar has produced some of the world’s most beloved animated movies of the last decade and a half. From their Emeryville campus, a short hop from the city of San Francisco, Pixar’s strive to innovate and passion for story has seen them mine cinematic gold pretty-much consistently since their first feature.
Many people think Luxo Jr. is the first Pixar animated film (see below), but it’s technically the Adventures of Andre and Wally B, produced while the soon-to-be Pixar crew was still at Lucas studios. Watch this and ask yourself–can you believe this was made in 1984!?
