Sam: Yeah, it kind of is. My mum and dad were very much into Lord of the Rings, and my father called me Samwise.
It was one of those things where no matter how great something is, when you are utterly exhausted, and I was sick, too, it just was too much… I tried to go to an after party, but it was absolutely miserable, and I walked right back out and went home and ordered a pizza.
When someone unfollows me I take it very personally.

He seems to be sleeping peacefully, but he is not asleep. Rose can only stare at his still face as the thunderbolt of realization goes through her. All hope, will and spirit leave her. Rose closes her eyes. She is so weak, and there just seems to be no reason to even try. And then.. her eyes snap open.

Anastasia’s Blue Dress Appreciation Post
Was there some sort of special animation for this movie because it has never looked quite like other animation.
It was almost entirely rotoscoped, if that’s what you mean? That means it was drawn on top of live action film, which is how they got the realistic subtleties.
Whoa, that’s so cool. Wow.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is rotoscoping done fantastically right.
Because all you really need to do is find some cheap animation produced by lesser-to-completely-unknown studios to see how horribly disturbing rotoscoping is when the artist cannot animate very well; if the frame rate is too slow? It looks jerky, choppy, and repulsively unnatural. It leaps right into the uncanny valley and sets up house there.
It’s quality rotoscoping because it’s a Don Bluth production. Director of such classics as “The Secret of NIMH” and “The Land Before Time”.
Bluth (and the animators he hires) are just that fucking good.
I have what I fear is a dumb question, but I was talking about growth mindsets with my students today so I feel like I have to ask. This is how you learn! If they rotoscoped this, and rotoscoping is drawn on top of live action film, are you saying they had people act it out and drew on top of that? I think I’m missing something here. It’s an animated movie and silly/unreal things happened in it. Either way, I’m on a youtube spiral and hunting down my DVD!
It’s currently playing on Netflix.
I sometimes forget that Death is a female (who’s in love with deadpool) in the Marvel universe.
I will always reblog this.
