‘Piper’: How Pixar Turned R&D Into an Oscar-Contending Short (Exclusive Video)

8 February 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s been 15 years since Pixar won the Oscar for Ralph Eggleston’s”For the Birds,” and it has another fine-feathered gem in Alan Barillaro’s “Piper” that’s getting lots of buzz (watch the clip below).

In “Piper,” a baby sandpiper overcomes a fear of water as part of her rite of passage. But, uncharacteristically, the short began as an R&D project in the tools department to create greater sculpting control for the artists. They used the new RenderMan Ris platform for photoreal shading and lighting (first used on the “Finding Dory” feature).

“For me, the goal was to make computer animation more expressive,” Barillaro told IndieWire. “There’s more personal stories we can tell and more visual language we can use with the toolset. How do we tell a story with little birds that’s not anthropomorphized? »

An Open Letter to President Trump: Watch Some Iranian Movies, They’re Good For You

7 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Dear President Trump,

On a recent Saturday, as you were watching your first movie in the White House, an unprecedented wave of protests swept across the country in opposition to your decision to impose a ban on visitors from seven predominantly Muslim nations.

I am not going to focus on the striking irony of foreign travelers being detained in the U.S. airports as you were enjoying Pixar’s “Finding Dory,” the story of a migrant fish detained in this country and aided by aquatic friends of different colors to find her parents.

Instead, I would like to bring to your attention an event of a smaller scale that was eclipsed by the news of the national uproar over your travel ban: the limited opening of an Iranian film, “The Salesman,” inspired by an American play to rave reviews and strong box office numbers.

Of course, there’s nothing wrong »

The 5 Best Movies Added to Netflix This Month

3 February 2017 1:32 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

5) Finding Dory – If you missed out on this long-awaited sequel to 2003’s Finding Nemo you can go check it out right now on Netflix.  Although it couldn’t quite stand out from a crowded animated field – which included Zootopia, Kubo and the Two Strings, Moana, Sausage Party and the criminally underrated Long Way North – it was a mesmerizing return to form for Pixar after having kept these highly memorable characters on ice for over a decade. It is well-voiced, gorgeously animated and just as emotionally resonate as its predecessor.  While not quite as memorable or narratively fresh

Latest Movies Reviews and Our Personal Thoughts

7. Inglourious Basterds – Release Date: June 2009

Quentin Tarantino has the ability to evoke passion from audiences. Love him or call him a hack that repeatably steals the visions of other directors for his gain, this auteur has a style all his own…. In his first movie since 2003/2004’s Kill Bill, Tarantino heads to Germany. Nazi Germany.

Starring Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger, Samm Levine, and Mike Myers (yes, that Mike Myers), Tarantino’s upcoming World War II movie centers on a group of Jewish-American soldiers who scalp and barbarously slaughter Nazis. If that doesn’t say “fun”, I’m not sure what does.

8. Sherlock Holmes – Release Date: November 20, 2009

Coming off two brilliant performances in Iron Man and Tropic Thunder, Robert Downey Jr. will be Sherlock Holmes next Thanksgiving. From director Guy Ritchie (Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch), the legendary detective and his faithful partner Watson (played by Jude Law) must »

Ellen DeGeneres Comments on President Trump’s Refugee Ban Using the Plot to Finding Dory

30 January 2017 7:49 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ellen DeGeneres had something to say about the refugee ban imposed by President Donald Trump, and she did it by talking about Finding Dory.

DeGeneres, 59, who voiced Dory for Finding Nemo and its sequel Finding Dory, touched on the subject of aiding others in the wake of a ban that has spurred protests across the country and angered many around the world.

“Even though Dory gets into America, she gets separated from her family,” DeGeneres said. “But, the other animals help Dory. Animals that don’t even need her, animals that don’t even have anything in common with her. »

The Line of Duty star discusses improvisation, Notts County and mucking about with the cast of This Is England

1.55pm GMT

Thank you for all your questions. Some funny ones in there! I'm still trying to think about what I find most exotic - I'll get back to you on that. Thanks for all your support with my work, and it's still quite overwhelming that this is my job.

RickHall1 asks:

You, Stephen Lowe and Billy Ivory all feature on the Nottingham Trams. What is it about Nottingham and drama/theatre talent?

Maybe it's in the brown sauce... I think there's a lovely, humble trait that runs through Nottingham. We're a city that are incredibly proud of what we've achieved but we don't shout too loud about it. I think when people discover the talents that come out of Nottingham, it is getting bigger. But I think we'll always remain really humble. »

Oscars 2017 Animated Shorts: Will ‘Piper’ End Pixar’s 16-Year Drought?

25 January 2017 5:39 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s been 16 years since Pixar won the Oscar for best animated short (Ralph Eggleston’s “For the Birds”). Wouldn’t it be fitting if Alan Barillaro’s fine-feathered “Piper” ended the drought? That would give Pixar four Oscars (alongside Geri’s Game” and “Tin Toy”).

However, “Piper” faces stiff competition, particularly from Theodore Ushev’s much darker “Blind Vaysha” from the National Film Board of Canada, which has earned a dozen Oscars.

The other three contenders range from Robert Valley’s bleak “Pear Cider and Cigarettes” (Vimeo’s first Oscar nom), the melancholy Western, “Borrowed Time” (made independently by Pixar’s Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou-Lhadj), and the introspective “Pearl” from Oscar winner Patrick Osborne (Disney’s “Feast”), the first Vr nominee from Google Spotlight Stories.

Poll: What’s the Most Shocking Snub From Oscar Nominations?

24 January 2017 5:09 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Oscar nominations were announced Tuesday and, while some started their days with awards nods, there were also, as always, the inevitable snubs.

There was hope that Oscar might show some comic book love in the form of nominations for “Deadpool,” but the Ryan Reynolds passion project was shut out completely. Speaking of passion projects, Martin Scorsese’s meditation on faith, “Silence,” nabbed only one nomination for best cinematography.

On the acting side, few snubs seemed more glaring than Amy Adams for “Arrival” and Tom Hanks for “Sully.” And “Finding Dory” was overlooked in favor of other Disney favorites, even after its predecessor, “Finding Nemo,” became the first Pixar movie to win best animated feature in 2004.

Which snub shocked you the most? Weigh in below. Did we forget the snub that left you the most surprised? Let us know in the comments.

Oscars: Pixar Shut Out of Animated Feature Category

24 January 2017 9:08 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tuesday morning’s Oscar nominations for best animated film skewed towards Disney Animation, stop-motion films,  the international and the quirky — but Disney’s Pixar saw a rare shutout in the animated feature film category.

Finding Dory,” Pixar’s blockbuster that grossed over $1 billion worldwide, was not among the nominees.

Moana” and “Zootopia” led the charge for Disney Animation, which scored two nods in the category.

Pixar has dominated the animation category since 2004, when “Finding Nemo” won the Emeryville-based company’s first Oscar. Other winners include “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille,” “Wall-e,” “Up,” “Toy Story 3,”  “Brave” and last year’s winner “Inside Out.”

Pixar did receive a nomination on Tuesday for animated short “Piper,” which played before “Finding Dory.”

Oscar Nominations: 12 Biggest Snubs and Surprises

24 January 2017 7:23 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The biggest curveball from Tuesday morning’s Oscars announcement arguably wasn’t the nominees — it was how the Academy decided to unveil them. Rather than a live press conference at the crack of dawn in Los Angeles, ABC aired a protracted infomercial, starring second-tier Oscar winners like Marcia Gay Harden and Dustin Lance Black.

La La Land” beat out all other films, with a record-tying 14 nominations (on par with “Titanic” and “All About Eve”). “Arrival” and “Moonlight” followed up with eight each. And in other good news: After two years of #OscarsSoWhite, 35 percent of this year’s acting nominees are people of color, including previous winners Denzel Washington (“Fences”) and Octavia Spencer (“Hidden Figures”).

Here are the 12 most glaring snubs and surprises.

Our favourite voice work performances in time for The Lego Batman Movie

Our favourite voice work performances in time for The Lego Batman MovieOur favourite voice work performances in time for The Lego Batman MovieAdriana Floridia1/23/2017 10:13:00 Am

Many of us have different opinions on who played Batman best, but we'd be willing to throw out a far left candidate: Will Arnett.

That's right. Will Arnett plays Batman in a whole other way, by voicing Lego Batman. He was such a scene-stealer in The Lego Movie that he got his own spin-off, which has to say something, right?

Arnett is no stranger to voice work as he stars as the titular "Bojack Horseman" on the Netflix series. Playing a horse who once starred on a popular sitcom and now has fallen from grace, this is another voice performance that is so good, it makes Bojack-- an anthropomorphic horse, feel real. We'd argue Arnett does the same with the Lego version of Batman. »

Pixar Reveals Easter Eggs Connecting All Its Movies

19 January 2017 5:50 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For years, Pixar fans have harbored the sneaking suspicion that all their most beloved animated movies are connected and in fact take place in the same universe.

Now, the famed “Pixar Theory” appears to be more than speculation, after Pixar published an Easter egg-laden video on the “Toy Story” Facebook page.

While some eagle-eyed fans will have spotted many of these cheeky references before, for instance Boo’s toy collection in “Monsters, Inc.” includes a Jesse doll from “Toy Story 2” and a stuffed-toy clownfish that bares an uncanny resemblance to Nemo from “Finding Nemo,” others would require the finest of fine-tooth combs to find.

For instance, who knew that one of the blue-colored cars from “Cars” was in the background of the final fight scene from “The Incredibles?” Probably no one. And who could have guessed that a girl standing in the background of an aquarium scene in “Finding Dory »

2017 Oscar Predictions: Best Animated Short

19 January 2017 12:39 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This year a record 69 animated short films vied for an Oscar nomination, with ten making the shortlist, and five final nominations. 

For six years, Disney or Pixar has been nominated in the category every year, and won twice (“Paperman” and “Feast”). This year Pixar’s “Piper,” from Alan Barillaro (“Wall·E,” “Brave,” “Finding Nemo”), could mark a Pixar win for the first time since Ralph Eggleston’s “For the Birds” 15 years ago. That would give Pixar four Oscars (alongside Geri’s Game” and “Tin Toy”).

Disney Easter Egg Video Shows How Every Pixar Movie Is Connected

17 January 2017 8:39 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We've long suspected that every Pixar movie from Toy Story to The Good Dinosaur takes place in the same universe. Now a new Disney Easter Egg video shows how that is possible. With a few fun transitions, a dozen interlocking Easter eggs are revealed that quickly move through the entire Pixar catalogue. And it's nothing short of amazing, especially considering some of the foresight the animators had to have to pull it all off.

Things kick off with Dory bumping into a group of school children on a trip to the local aquarium, and if you look close enough, you'll spot Riley from Inside Out in the back ground. That transitions to Inside Out, where we see how Riley fondly remembers back to her time with the dinosaur, which cleverly connects to The Good Dinosaur. This then transitions to Milo, the star of that movie, who was actually a toy »

Animated Fare Like ‘Zootopia’ and ‘Red Turtle’ Toon Into Heavy Issues

6 January 2017 8:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The maxim that good scripts are essential to making good movies is especially true in animation.  In this medium, scripts and storyboards provide blueprints for completely invented worlds, and dialogue is recorded before the animation is done.

There’s been an Oscar category for animated feature for just 15 years; and toon screenplay nominations are relatively recent. Prior to that, animated movies typically were likelier to be recognized for song. Thus far, writer-director Andrew Stanton tops the list of Oscar-nominated animation screenwriters with four to his name (including “Toy Story,” “Wall-e,” “Finding Nemo,” and “Toy Story 3”), and he could compete again this year with the Disney/Pixar billion-dollar winner “Finding Dory.”

There’s another billion-dollar baby attracting awards buzz this season, too.  Disney’s computer-animated “Zootopia” nabbed 11 Annie Award nominations (including writing) and a Golden Globe nod for animated film.  It’s also the only animated feature among AFI’s 2016 honorees. »
