  • RIP 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…

  • Star Wars: Uncut
    Star Wars Uncut: Director’s Cut. Star Wars ’77. Chunked into 15 second segments.

  • 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…
