Future of Animated Features?

Hello - How do folks here see the feature animation industry evolving?  I have been amazed for decades how feature animation in the west has been so completely stuck in one sort of mould, its all family films, same looking characters and style of storytelling etc. There is so much new tech now for a...

Two Yeti-themed movies this year, huge budgets, and simplified scripts (journey, will they make it? of course...)

Simon Turnbull

Yeah I feel you,. Cool stuff does get made, like Persepolis, or Sylvain Chomet's films but The mainstream stuff is all very samey. I don't even bother going to see a Pixar style animated film any more...

Brian Shell

Chandeliers. Balcony. 1928 Barton organ.

It accompanies showings of Nosferatu

How to PITCH a Screenplay online....

Kay Luke

OK, I'll bite-- How do you pitch a screenplay online?

Doug Nelson

The harsh but simple straight answer is, you don't. This is still an eyeball--to-eyeball business.

Craig D Griffiths

How do you get a date online

How do you buy a suit online
