Kajola



Just saw the preview and to believe that special effects and animation is finding a voice in Nigeria, is just beautiful. i believe so much more in my dream now.
Back to Kajola, it a science fiction movie coming out July 30th, a day after my birthday (coincidence or what). It is wonderful movie, which is set to mark the beginning of the vfx and animation industry in Nigeria. The special effect was done by Anthill multimedia and I know they are set to do great things....

Toy Stroy3::: No Fun and Games



Last weekend, Toy story 3 opened with great review. To imagine that a 3d animated movie topped the summer chart so far with $109 million opening weekend, was just amazing.

Hearing this news gave me joy,knowing the possibilities in my chosen industry was just great.

A box-office analyst for Hollywood Paul Dergarabedian said "Disney-Pixar is the best box-office insurance policy you can have,". "It's a brand that just resonates with audiences. If they go to a Pixar movie, they know they're going to be entertained. They're going to have a great time and also get a message. There's always a positive lesson you walk away with."

This is certainly a must watch this weekend, cant wait...

Back in 3D: Yogi Bear...

One of my favorite classic is going 3D, at first I was elated but it soon turn into shock when I saw the proposed models;
yogi:


Boo-Boo:


It going to be combination 3D and live-action like Garfield. Don't get me wrong I love Garfield, I think my issue with this, is the models and it's supposed quality. And really, I personally will prefer fully animated movie like Up(Pixar).

What do you think...wonderful or horror!!!...

His iconic creations like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Pepe Le Pew, Wile E. Coyote and many other characters filled my heart with joy as a little girl.

a little kick

I found this website while surfing for update on the Oscars. i look through their video collection and their commercials struck me. they are really good.........

and winner is..........



when i watch the short film(animated) logorama, i was impressed. The use of entirely contemporary and historical logos and mascots was imaginative, this will definitely be a great piece in cinematic history.



And the other short film in this category were also lovely. i love granny o' grim version of the sleeping beauty.
