Keyframe closing its doors in September

It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing Keyframe will be closing in September. 18 years is an amazing run for any website and I am so incredibly grateful to everyone for their support.

The site itself will be backed up in full. As a gift to our top reviewers, I will be extracting emailing their reviews back to them. I know over the years a great deal of time and effort have gone into those reviews and I want to make sure that people have them.

Thanks again.

Award Nominee time 2012

The 85th Academy awards - better known as Oscars - are around the corner. Unlike last year's batch, 2012 actually has an entry from Pixar from the Academy, Brave. Though it's up against fairly stiff competition for the statue this year.

Disney have two entries - three if you count Brave, Aardman have another. Two of the year's entries have a distinctly horror vibe to them. None of the films have been nominated outside of Best Animated Film, or Best Short Film (Animated).

Best Animated Film



Short Film (Animated)



  • Adam and the Dog

  • Fresh Guacamole

  • Head over Heels

  • Maggie Simpson in the Longest Daycare

  • Paperman


ANNIES


The Annies have also announced their shortlist for their awards show, with the following nominated for Best Animated Feature.



BAFTAS


Also around the corner are the British Academy Film and Television Awards (BAFTAs), taking place on the 10th of February.

"Brave", "Frankenweenie", and "ParaNorman" are the three BAFTA nominations for Animated Film. "While Here to Fall", "I'm Fine Thanks" and "The Making of Longbird" are in the contention for Best Short Animation.

An Afternoon at Spark Animation '12

Yesterday, after a very hectic week, I had the opportunity to indulge my inner animation geek and take in a few talks at Spark Animation '12, my hometown's own small animation festival organized by the Vancouver chapter of SIGGRAPH. Here are some highlights from my afternoon including the talks I heard on ParaNorman and The Rise of the Guardians and the showcase of French animation.

Spark's been running since 2008 and I've attended it a few times now. There wasn't a festival last year due to the fact that the main SIGGRAPH conference was taking place in Vancouver that summer, but previous years they've been really great events where I got to see films like Mary and Max and The Secret of Kells, documentaries on animation like Waking Sleeping Beauty (highly recommended) and Walt and El Grupo, and presentations from studios like the team from Dreamworks talking about How to Train Your Dragon.

Here are some highlights from yesterday...


TALK: The Handcrafted Visual Effects of "ParaNorman"

VFX Supervisor Brian Van't Hul from Laika gave a talk on the role of computer-based visual effects on a stop-motion film. Now, I personally really liked ParaNorman, (for details, see my review), but I think there were a few people in the audience that took one look at all the painstaking effort that goes into a stop-motion film and wondering why waste all those computer cycles prettying up the stop-motion rather than just doing the whole thing in the computer.

Answer? Essentially because stop-motion is damn cool and we think it's something worth doing.

Much of this talk focused on the ways that the VFX department supports the work of the stop-motion animators. This includes things like:


  • digitally painting out the seam on the puppet's faces where the eye and mouth shape replacement happens (see this video on YouTube for more info on how the faces were done)

  • digitally painting out the wires and metal frames the animators sometimes use to support the characters in some of the more complex stop-motion sequences -- my favourite of these was a complex armature used to animate the tiny motion of a swing rocking in the breeze

  • set extensions and hiding the open parts of the set where the animators stand to work with the puppets

  • creating computer generated crowds to fill out the background behind stop-motion animated characters

  • compositing together bits of real world elements to create a digital collage

The last one I actually found really interesting because it focused on this notion of things that we might want to animate by hand but which would be way too time consuming to do so. One example is the manipulation of tulle through many parts of visual effects. For those of you who aren't aware, tulle is this semi-translucent fabric used for things like wedding veils. The designers behind the film liked the interesting crinkly shapes that the tulle makes when it's scrunched up and so they took tulle elements and brought them together in the computer for use in things like the smoke coming off the ghosts or the roiling clouds.

Now a good thing for you is that some of the behind-the-scenes clips that we saw in the talk are readily available on YouTube, like this one on all the various pieces of the Norman puppet. Check them out and considering check out ParaNorman itself which is still running in theatres.




TALK: "Rise of the Guardians" - Reinventing Childhood Icons

Ever since the first trailers and buzz started coming out for Dreamwork's next film, Rise of the Guardians, I've been excited. Now that I've had the chance to see the opening few minutes and a couple select clips from the film... I'm *really* excited. Seriously folks, if the rest of the film is half as good as the pieces they showed us, you are going to want to line up for this one in November.



This talk was done by Gabe Hordos, Header of Character on Rise of the Guardians. As someone who is intensely interested in story and character, I found this a very insightful talk as he went through all the development that went into each of the primary characters. He said that frequently on these films animators don't really get that rock-solid grasp of the character's performance until quite late into production, so what they tried to do with Rise of the Guardians is spend more time up front learning about how each of the characters moved and reacted. He showed us a lot of pose thumbnails and interesting bits of test animation. 

As an example, the character of North (aka Santa Claus) was inspired by a warrior cossack. His movements and poses have this underlying thread of a soldier--a kind of crisp, military precision even though he has this kind of boundless energy and child-like joy as well. They found inspiration in a character in the movie Snatch, (apologies I haven't seen that movie so I've forgotten that character's name), but they liked his kind of jerky energy and did a number of test clips with North using dialog from that film.

Now the beauty of doing all this test work upfront was it gave the animators the opportunity to try things out that you'd never get away with in the final film. Hordos described it as trying to figure out when they'd gone to far and when they hadn't gone far enough. It's unfortunate that these clips will never be available for public consumption, but let's just say that the combination between the test dialog and the test animation made for some rather raunchy experiments in places.

Anyways, a great talk for what I anticipate is going to be a great movie.


FILM: Student Shorts from Gobelins / "A Cat in Paris"

The evening event was sponsored by the local French consulate and was a showcase of animation from France. Gobelins, l'école de l'image, is a Paris-based applied arts, print and digital media school known world-wide for its award winning animation. We were shown films from students' first, second and third year of animation. To give you a sense of the kind of calibre of filmmaking we're talking about, second year students are put in five person teams and their task is to make short films for Annecy, which are they shown as trailers and interstitionals at this well-known international animation festival.

While the mix of films was definitely obscure and occassionally a bit baffling in terms of themes and subject matter, they was a strong reminder in a time when animation is frequently equated to cash that it has always been its own artform. Below is my favourite of the bunch which I actually highlighted recently on Keyframe's Facebook page. The filmmakers describe the relationship between the woman and the crocodile as a metaphor for her personal struggle with shyness, but it makes for a wonderful and very sweet bit of character animation.



As for A Cat in Paris... I will leave you with this trailer for the moment and save my full review for another day. In general I concur with Dogstar's review, that this is a solid little film that won't blow you mind but has some cute gags and will keep you generally entertained for its duration.

Help StoryCorps raise money for its animated special

StoryCorps is a non-profit organization dedicated to recording the stories of real people and one of the ways that they showcase these stories is through animation. They've done several wonderful animated shorts over the years--some of which I've featured on Keyframe in the past--and now they are attempting to raise money for their first long-form animated special. PBS has agreed to air the special in the fall of 2013, but StoryCorps needs to raise $25,000 to make this project a reality. As of this writing they'd raised a little over $17,000, but the great thing about a Kickstarter project is that every little bit helps. If you're interested in this project, but can only put in $5, then that's perfectly fine too.

To learn more about this project, check out the StoryCorps Animated Special Kickstarter page.


And here's an example of one of the great shorts they've done in the past...

A Cross-Generation Collaboration: The Inside Scoop of a Comic-Con Success Story
In 2009, a nine-year-old San Diego artist and award-winning film critic Perry Chen (Ingrid Pitt: Beyond the Forest) met Oscar-nominated animation legend Bill Plympton (Guard Dog) at Comic-Con and drew a "Hot Dog" next to the one Plympton drew for him from his acclaimed animation series. A year later, Perry was hired to work on an animation short, Ingrid Pitt: Beyond the Forest, about a young Holocaust survivor (actress Ingrid Pitt's story), under the guidance of Plympton. The rest is history. A panel of the creative team, sponsors, and distributor, including Perry Chen (animator), Kevin Sean Michaels (director), Bill Plympton (storyboard and character design), Zhu Shen (producer), Karina Bessoudo (Toon Boom Animation, vice president of marketing and communications), Douglas Little (Wacom, public relations), and Linda Olszewski (Shorts International co-head of worldwide acquisition), share the amazing behind-the-scenes story: how a first-time child animator's film got sponsorship from leading animation companies, went on to premiere at the 2011 Comic-Con and LA Shorts Fest, won multiple film festival awards, was featured in Animation magazine and on 2011 Animation Show of Shows, qualified for an Academy Award, touched many hearts, and secured worldwide distribution by Shorts International, the distributor of Oscar-nominated shorts and other outstanding short films. This lively panel, moderated by Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) will share tips and lessons learned not only about getting started with animation, but also how to identify and secure corporate sponsorships; how get your film produced, marketed, and distributed; and how to select the right film festivals for your film.

Whether you're a hobbyist or looking to go pro, if you struggle with deadlines, need help finding collaborators, want to know how to effectively work with a team without mortally wounding each other, or simply want to know how to get your foot in the door, this panel is for you!
