The Little Prince - Trailer

In a strange turn of events for The Little Prince, Paramount has dropped the CG, stop-motion animated film one week before its scheduled U.S. release on March 18.
Director Mark Osborne confirmed the news in a statement on Twitter: “Many thanks to everyone for the outpouring of love and support in these strange times. As it turns out, the much anticipated U.S. release of this special and unique film will have to be anticipated just a little bit more.”

He continued, “All I can say is [The Little Prince] will in fact be released by another distributor later this year. Until then, head to Canada! The film opens there in wide release this weekend!”

Paramount did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.

The Little Prince is an adaptation of the 1943 children’s book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The story follows a pilot who meets a young boy while stranded in the desert, and the film features both CG and stop-motion animation. Watch the trailer below.

1 on 1 Animation Kickstarter

1 on 1 Animation

Located in Van Nuys, California

My good friends Wayne and Mike have a Kickstarter to start a traditional animation school! Won't you support their effort? This is just what most newbie animators need and it is an "in-person hands-on" workshop!

Our goal at 1 on 1 Animation is to produce animators at a professional level. In a nutshell, that's IT.  That's what it all boils down to. Upon completion of the necessary classes, we want our students to be able to enter the animation industry and apply everything they have learned in order to animate confidently in any medium of animation. Be it computers, hand-drawn, stop-motion, or cut-outs. Our teaching method is as customized to your needs as we can make it, hence our name, 1 on 1 Animation. We have worked at various studios from Disney Feature Animation to Nickelodeon and Warner Brothers and many, many more. We want to pass on the fundamentals of animation that uencompass ALL forms of animated projects from E-cards to the film and gaming industries. We are an in-house school giving "1 on 1" attention.

Animated Short - Animator VS. Animation

Animated Short - Animator VS. Animation


The artist's description of this little flash movie:
An animator faces his own animation in deadly combat. The battlefield? The Flash interface itself. A stick figure is created by an animator with the intent to torture. The stick figure drawn by the animator will be using everything he can find - the brush tool, the eraser tool - to get back at his tormentor. It's resourcefulness versus power. Who will win? You can find out yourself.

-- This took three long months.. i think it's worth it.
