  1. Imaginears Animation Studio scam

    I found out about a Scottish animation studio that has taken Disney Pixar properties as well as my own and scammed several artists at major studios (Dreamworks, Pixar, Sony, Blue Sky) in order to crowd-fund a short film for $250,000 through kickstarter.

    I presented all this information here:

    http://giro3d.blogspot.com/2014/01/scam-adam-and-antony-murphys-imaginears.html

    I would be interested in the story to be featured on cartoon brew as they are still contacting artists and asking them to collaborate.

    thanks!

                                It's an article from the Financial Times about how Frozen did wonders for Disney's income statement. Bob Iger says he'll take advantage of the franchise.

                                This is probably the final word on how huge of a success "Frozen" was.

                                      • Retrofuturistic, Heavily Akira inspired Street racing music video

                                        Http://www.vimeo.com/crookedline/motn

                                        Prepare yourself for an excellent night of retrofuturistic, heavily Akira inspired street racing courtesy of Amsterdam-based illustrator Stefan Glerum and animation studio Crooked Line for DJ/Producer RipTide. Droning retro synth brings this dark, neon-tinged world to life, replete with a Speed Racer-esque lineup of colorful racers bringing their own gimmicks to the table.

                                        Amsterdam-based illustrator Stefan Glerum teamed up with animation studio Crooked Line to create this animated music video for DJ and producer RipTide. Crooked Line was responsible for bringing Stefan’s illustrations to life for the first time.

                                        • Free Maya Character and Facial Rigging Tutorial

                                          I recently created a new, free Maya character named Mike and Tina, and wanted to share it with the community. This rig is free for non-commercial use, and packed with options.

                                          You can download the rig from Creative Crash by following this link:
                                          http://www.creativecrash.com/maya/downloads/character-rigs/c/mike-and-tina-character-rig

                                          I also have a video describing the rig features here:
                                          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-_67sjP0x4

                                          And if you're interested in knowing more about the techniques I used to rig this character's face, be sure to check out my Lynda.com Facial Rigging Tutorial here:
