loving this new oscar-nominated short from disney. it sort of reminds me of my thesis project back when i was trying to be an animator (and now i’m in bschool).

it was made by a first-time director using innovative technology that merges computer and hand-drawn animation.

good job, disney. i see having john lasseter at the helm is really helping. although i haven’t seen wreck it ralph (yet), that had a lot of promise too.

thomas bangalter does fashion

the cooler half of daft punk, thomas bangalter, directed a short film for luxury fashion brand co starring his wife elodie bouchez for their spring/summer 2012 collection.

daft punk is no stranger to directing as they released a full length film called electroma before.  they should stick to making music…not that this one was bad.
