Sup, today I was able to see Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and it was amazing. Expect a review for that soon but I this got me thinking. There are quite a few movies that I’m looking forward to in 2019. Here is five live-action movie adaptation that I’m looking forward too.
What is anime? According to sources, anime is the Japanese term for animation. Outside Japan, anime refers specifically to animation from Japan or animation style often characterized by colorful graphics, distinct character designs, and fantastical themes
What’s good, here is my day 6 submission for the 12 Days of Anime. The topic for today is Anime I’m looking forward too in 2019. I touched briefly on my thoughts and expectation for the coming year.
Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki 終わらない人 宮崎駿 (Owaranai Hito Miyazaki Hayao) is a documentary about Hayao Miyazaki and his never-ending work ethic directed by Kaku Arakawa.
I was able to watch a screening of the movie at Anime NYC. Hayao Miyazaki has won many awards for his films because of his love and dedication to his work. He is an extraordinary filmmaker, animator, screenwriter, and manga artist. He is to me one of Japan’s greatest animation director’s of all time. It was an interesting documentary and even more amazing watching him battling with himself for coming out of retirement.
While I sat in the Dante Buford panel, I met Matthew Bordenave who is a Storyboard artist and up next was his panel. He was very funny and had a great stage presence. I really got to enjoy this panel and had a lot of fun. I was interested in learning about storyboarding because it is part of what makes an animation, this is one of the many jobs that brings an animation to life. With everyone’s hard work, everything comes together into the animation we see. I originally sat in this panel because I was curious about what the panel would be about, I was able to learn a lot about the behind-the-scenes in developing an animation. Continue reading
At J1-Con I was able to meet Dante Buford a Director and an Animator. I never understood the behind the scenes of creating an animation and all the work that goes into creating animation. There are so many people that work together in creating an animation. There are storyboard artists, animators, artists, voice-over actors, and many other different positions. With all the work from everyone, everything comes together it is visualized into the animation we see. I sat in the panel because I was curious about what the panel was about, I was able to learn a lot about the behind-the-scenes in developing an animation.
This will be our first time attending J1-Con and I’m looking forward to quite a few things. One being the Blackfinity Gauntlet which is a podcasting summit. The Music Festival and Gaming Tournament.
Incredibles 2 Spoilers!!!
This has been so long overdue that we’ve literally waited 14 years for part 2 to come out and it was worth the wait. Now before I get into this if you plan on seeing the movie anytime soon, if you have a history of epilepsy or light-induced seizures be aware that this movie does have a few scenes that have intense strobe lights and for minutes at a time. I wasn’t aware of this and I don’t have a history of epilepsy or light-induced seizures but I am prone to getting really bad migraines when exposed to intense flashing lights.
This is the last day of AnimeNEXT and it’s really been a blast we have so much content to push out that we hope you guys think about coming out to Atlantic City for next year’s AnimeNEXT. This weekend has been a never-ending fun filled con full of cosplayers, events, and games. I’ve said this before there is so much space the elbow room is so amazing and AnimeNEXT always has something going on so finding things to do is an easy part but this year felt like there were so many choices that picking where to go will be the hardest part.
