not everyone who blogs about social justice issues is a social justice warrior! there are social justice clerics, social justice rogues, social justice rangers, and social justice wizards, among other classes. nobody’s going to get anywhere without diversity; if you go into any boss dungeon with a party consisting entirely of social justice warriors and expect to beat it then you are going to be sorely disappointed.
Sir Ian had to act to these stands with the actors’ faces pasted on them. It’s hilarious. xD But at the same time, my heart also goes out to Sir Ian.
now this is neat
Now this is a professional.
"In order to shoot the dwarves and a large Gandalf, we couldn’t be in the same set. All I had for company was 13 photographs of the dwarves on top of stands with little lights – whoever’s talking flashes up. Pretending you’re with 13 other people when you’re on your own, it stretches your technical ability to the absolute limits. I cried, actually. I cried. Then I said out loud, ‘This is not why I became an actor’. Unfortunately the microphone was on and the whole studio heard.”
– Sir Ian McKellen (x)
this idiot finally did it.
after writing hundreds of songs day and night, his very own composition is finally being used by sm entertainment. he wrote it not for himself, but for jongdae and his juniors, because he really likes making music. his passion for the arts is really overshadowed in exo sometimes.
baby steps yixing… you’re getting there.
also pls all hail producer zhang and his obnoxious retweet on weibo to purposely inform us that jongdae is included in this song (✿◠‿◠)
i think the disney company somehow forgot that you can make a character attractive AND expressiveIN 2D ANIMATION, YES. CGI IS MUCH DIFFERENT AND MUCH HARDER TO FORM DIFFERENT EXPRESSIONS AND FACES OH MY GOD
Please, don’t undermine the skills of modelers, riggers, and animators.
And two fun facts:
•The Incredibles was the first PIXAR film to feature humans to the scale that they did and I think they pulled off expressions on ALL their characters pretty damn well.
•Jessica Rabbit was hand inked, hand painted, and hand airbrushed on celluloid and manually composited into each scene, but they didn’t sacrifice how expressive she was just because animation is hard.
In which Meg grinds people’s ignorance into dust under her shoe and it’s beautiful.
Hi, person trained in 3D animation here. Anyone who says “women’s faces are so haaaaard to animate in 3D” is talking out their ass, is making excuses for sexism, and/or lacks talent. There isn’t some magical difference between animating dudes and animating women that requires Disney to use the exact same damn face in Frozen that they used in Tangled. They and Pixar spent millions researching effects for feathers, water, fur, subsurface scattering, and countless other complicated, technical phenomenon. They can design and animate a damn character.
