Awesome behind the scenes of cel animation from Richard Williams
Some of these shots have not been seen previously, and we focus on details that are easy to miss in the final film. Some of this material will feature in The Thief and the Cobbler Recobbled Cut Mark 4.
Richard Williams is the legendary, triple Oscar winning animator of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Thief and the Cobbler, A Christmas Carol, and Raggedy Ann & Andy - A Musical Adventure.

Once you don't have to look into this guys weird eyes, the future gets even stranger when 3d printing is explained. This is not a new idea but the possibility once it is more accessible and prevalent this technology will become another under the radar game changer for not only labor and manufacturing but also for planet Earth. And it's not limited to just consumer goods, this process has also been utilized in bioprinting which creates synthetic human tissue and eventually maybe even human organs. The thing is about the future is it's so unpredictable and uncertain that maybe watching this youtube is the equivalent of watching some outdated 1980's commercial about the fantastical uses of the interwebs.
Interesting "inequity" experiment. Super amazing! Do monkeys really need to tell us all what we already know?
Is this what doggy heaven looks like? Or is this just another impressive youtube of how much some lady in America has nothing better to do with her time? And I have nothing better to do than reblog it?
Nature keeping her fans in check
The Autumn Bowl was built in 1890 on the Greenpoint waterfront as part of the American Rope Factory’s maritime operations. Named after its past incarnation as a speakeasy skate park, The Autumn Bowl will host a series of site-specific installations and performances by artists working primarily with light, sound, and projection. The series, curated by NBNY, will illuminate this impressively tall former industrial space and highlight its potential as a hub of creative activity.
The Autumn Bowl supports engrossing and intimate viewer experiences within a 360-degree video projection and sound environment. Connect with us on Facebook for announcements and updates.
Did they just put speakeasy and skate park together? Whoever wrote this is fucking fired. From life. And sure there is nothing wrong with establishing a new hub of "creative activity" but the fact is you could have called it the American Rope Factory or a million other things. You could even start with two really terrible combination of English language words like "Speakeasy Skatepark" and take it from there. But no, you're gonna call it "The Autumn Bowl" because you are a bunch of shitty opportunistic douchebags who can't take no for an answer. And thank you for making it semi awkward to reuse the name Autumn Bowl should that ever happen in the future. Their logo makes me want to eat a burger. I can just see it now, people rocking their new "THE AUTUMN BOWL" t shirts. Makes me cringe but prepares me for the fact I will tell someone their shirt sucks if I should see that.
UPDATE 10/10: It has been wisely suggested that people engage in upperdecking all toilets on premiss. If you think about it this addresses two things at once: a legitimate form of protest that challenges the institution while basically being the equivalent of leaving flowers on a porcelain headstone.
