Pixars 22 Rules of Story Telling
9 is worth the price of admission, holy crap.
This is genius. So many great writing tips!
And this is why Pixar is a master in their field.
Why do I feel so weird reblogging this… this is the weekend dammit! Anyway, great advice.
This is something I definitely needed to hear right about now. Makes me want to storyboard!
sometimes I think back to the interviews Christopher Eccleston did while he was the Doctor and how he talked about how great it was that the series was moving away from the sexism of previous series and then I look at the show now and I just feel so sad
Wait. Not sad. What’s the other thing?
First of all, Nickelodeon did screw up, but not as bad as everyone else seems to believe. When you think about it, going digital Korra is probably the best option. Back when Book 2 was airing, we knew ratings were poor, but that it was doing great in the digital sphere. If Korra is…
In light of the 50 Shades of Grey trailer coming out today, quick reminder that that book is about an abusive and controlling relationship, not BDSM.
Fanfiction (published or not) is important for women of all ages to explore gender roles and sexuality in a way that is less stigmatized and more accessible.
But do not do the BDSM community a disservice by calling the relationship described in the book a BDSM experience.
This this this
This is at the stage of ‘Okay no more touching this tonight you’re gonna ruin it for sure’.
More WiP because.
Teaser WIP of the film I’m working on!
A fan animated version of Kesha’s song “Die Young”
playing around in After Effects was fun, and I actually have quite a bit more animated, but I think it’ll be a while ‘til I show the rest of that attached too the music.
reblog for the morning peeps <3
DAN: When you do interviews, you’re faced with the choice to either be the most boring person on earth or just get ridiculous things written about you from time to time
JOSH HOROWITZ: Sometimes it might be good to be boring
DAN: It might be but I just get bored of myself

“Countless others have come before you, seeking weapons or weaknesses or battle strategies!”
this is one of the truly brilliant things about this show. while most kids’ shows will have good vs evil conflict, atla has a war. a real war, between people, with all the moral greyness and points of view made clear. the fire nation isn’t evil: it’s a repressed country under the strict control of its ruler. we’re shown how history is altered and propaganda is taught as fact, so the people grow up moulded to hate all other nations.
and then we get lines like this, which make us stop and think wait, is what the other nations are doing really right? after all, Ba Sing Se was supposed to be a haven, but turned out to be repressive and full of lies.
in this case we know that Aang is justified, and we trust him to do what’s right because he has such high moral standards. then we get to the finale and all that is challenged again.
it’s just a brilliant show guise.
I would also like to point that even after Aang is gone, 170 years later, and Korra enters Ba Sing Se— absolutely nothing’s changed. It keeps being a city of oppressors and oppressed.
