engrave it on my tumbstone
What the fuck did I mean contest #1 : I found this working on some script for Kali. It seems I’ve written it and it must somehow have a powerful meaning, but I just can’t figure out what it is.
If you happen to find a meaning for it, just send me a message and I’ll try and reward the most accurate (or dumbest) translation with a doodle !
Anonymous asked: it really silly to me that people are raging over Frozen winning based on that sensasionalist biased article. Not only because it's a good movie from Disney, but because clearly it had the most popularity and cultural impact amongst the contenders and THAT is why it won. The Oscards are an award show based on ENTERTAINMENT more than our presumptuous notions of 'high art'. It would be weird for the Oscars to give it to a more obscure movie when Frozen was popular AND critically acclaimed.
I said it before and I’ll say it again : it’s not that much about the movie, and as another anon asked me it’s not about a hipsterish mentality of “the public is stupid and doesn’t know what a good movie is”. Why ? Because these awards are not given by the public. The oscars (like the Cesars, Magrittes and other Bears) are supposed to set a standard, not congratulating movies for their success in the box office. They give the tone for the movies we’d like to see next.
But then I’m certainly not asking to see obscure movies in the oscars, there are actually a lot of excellent movies in the main stream production - what I want is to see some respect in the field of animation. When someone says that he didn’t vote because animation is for children or they had something more important to do, then there’s a problem and a huge disrespect.
That doesn’t minimize the way Frozen is a great entairtenment with nice intentions and values - but it’s still a christmas pop-corn.
sprytemage asked: No hate, only curiosity. What animated feature would you have given the award to?
Honestly, it’s not really about who got the statue. It’s about how animation is disregarded by even the people who are supposed to have an eye for cinema and creativity.
Now, what I’m going to say is strictly my opinion. Don’t feel insulted in any way, it’s just personal taste : Ernest & Célestine (Definitely). I don’t undersand how the Croods was selected because it’s a disgrace. Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2 and Lego diserved at least a nomination tho, but I can understand why the academy didn’t want to nominate a giant ad for a toy company.
Thanks for asking ! Here, have a doodle.
I’m not dead ! Graduating movie is taking the best of me, and unfortunately I often pass out without even touching a pen. BUT ! I’ve taken the time to revive an old comic project of mine, called Detective Shatterton. I’ve been character designing, and somehow this little lady came out.
Don’t expect too much on this front tho : I’m focusing my free time on Kali, and I don’t have much free time. I expect to release the first chapter before summer. More as it devellops - see you guys !
