- Aug 18, 2019RIP Richard Williams
Richard Williams has died. He is one of the people who has inspired me over the years. I have done rudimentary animation as part of my web work over the years. Some of that work was featured in a book on Macromedia Flash 2 a long time ago. I can’t claim the title of animator…
- May 06, 2013Pogo for Monday
A sweet little remix for your Monday morning. Pogo’s “SquareBob SpongeMix”:
- Feb 15, 2012Watch this: about code, creativity, creation, and principle.
Astonishing, mindblowing, and suspiciously self-evident once you see it. Brilliant. Bret Victor – Inventing on Principle from CUSEC on Vimeo. Follow Jeff Victor on Twitter.
- Jan 21, 2012Star Wars: Uncut
Star Wars Uncut: Director’s Cut. Star Wars ’77. Chunked into 15 second segments. Segments claimed by filmmakers, amatuers, animators, goofballs, and then the segments are reassembled into Star Wars. Certain people will find this beautiful, wonderful, incredible. I expect some people won’t be able to watch more than about 6 minutes. I watched the whole…
- Funky Monk
Funky Monk, from Small Fry, a wonderful short that played before The Muppets, which Leah and I saw a while back.
- Paul M Bowers
In this post from 8 years ago, I mention Paul M Bowers, a photographer that was around the corner from us at AVENCOM in San Diego. He took many of our photos. I thought I’d check out his site, http://www.paulmbowers.com/, and see how it had changed. I’m actually sort of delighted that it is the…

- May 16, 2009Sharing; this one time…
In keeping with the “all I’m going to do is post videos indefinitely” theme that seems to be occuring, here are two of my favorites, they’re really phenomenal, which were posted on Cartoon Brew: Sharing from kris anka on Vimeo. This one time… from nelson boles on Vimeo.
- May 16, 2009Whitney Brothers; Processing, Jbum
At BarCampLA, Jim Bumgardner was inspirational for many things. One small thing was for pointing out these two films: “Lapis,” a short film by James Whitney: “Catalog,” a short film by John Whitney, 1961 Over on Coverpop, Bumgardner shows off work inspired by John Whitney: Whitney Music Box which is beautiful and hypnotic and surprisingly…
- Digital Breast Reduction in Pixar’s Knick Knack
jwz has all the details on the breast reduction that took place in the re-release of Knick Knack. I remember seeing Knick-Knack at a computer animation festival and at other animation tournees in San Diego and I do remember the original version. In fact, I think I have a VHS tape with the original versions…
- Animation: Initial energy lost in final product
This is a problem in all the arts, I think. The energy of a a musician’s demo is higher than the final recorded song. A sketch is more fun than a final drawing. It’s acute here in the storyboard and the final rendering from the new film Bolt: Funny commentary from Cartoon Brew:
- Tennis Pong
Really wonderful silliness via B3ta: And now, live from Wimbledon, the interactive Pong championships 2008 Busy today. Lots happening. Behind on some side stuff, but the day job has to come first. Also, got to hit the pool at lunchtime. Promise to catch up soon!
- Movies This Year
One of the things we do at work, at lunch and otherwise, is talk about movies, old, new and forthcoming. We kibitz and argue and I get a lot out of it. I like talking about movies about people who care about them. The one movie I am excited about that NOBODY else is is…
- Dec 28, 2007Happy Holidays!
I like how this animation screwed with my expectations. Supernifty!
- Nov 30, 2007Misc Never Knows
I’m up relatively early this morning. I can hear rain outside the window of the office. Leah acquired some of the lovely All Natural Cola by Whole Foods and I’m having one of those. I feel a tickle in my nose and I think I might be getting a cold. That’s not optimal. I have…
- My name is Misc, How do you do?
Uncov got some para-journalistic love from Wired. I have mentioned uncov before. I have thought a bit more about the salty language Ted uses, and I’ve decided it’s really interesting to my brain to have the subject be computer science and business and have the language come out of, oh, Quentin Tarantino. Id meets intellect….
- History of Flash
“The story of Flash as told by its inventor Jonathan Gay” — kind of neat. At my first web job we did lots of Splash work, crazy crazy stuff. I have the old FutureSplash and Flash icons in my old resume (I’m not linking you to old resumes. Yuck. The brave and/or crazy may visit…
