How ‘Finding Dory’ Pre-Show Short ‘Piper’ Bypassed the Pixar Pipeline

3 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If you want to make a short at Pixar, the studio offers a special program where resident artists — those who work anywhere in the company — have the chance to pitch three ideas to a panel of directors. But “Piper” skipped that step entirely, in part because it grew out of an experiment Alan Barillaro was conducting in his spare time.

“In computer animation, the tools aren’t done yet. At Pixar, we’re constantly asking, ‘What’s the best way an artist can express themselves?’ and I take that pretty seriously, so there’s this whole laundry list I have in my head of how can this tool be more visual,” says Barillaro, who used his free time following “Brave” to see whether he could “sculpt” one of Pixar’s existing bird models into a sandpiper.

“I wasn’t planning on making a short,” says Barillaro, who repurposed a crow »

‘Finding Dory’: 5 Reasons the Pixar Sequel Smashed Records

19 June 2016 12:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Finding Dory” shattered box office records this weekend, setting a new high-water mark for an animated film debut with its $136.2 million opening.

The sequel to 2003’s “Finding Nemo” succeeded where many followups this summer have failed, nearly doubling the original film’s $70.2 million launch. Its impressive results come amidst fears that the movie business is suffering from “sequelitis,” as one by one spinoffs and fresh installments such as “Alice Through the Looking Glass” and “X-Men: Apocalypse” sputter at the box office.

Here are five reasons that Disney and Pixar were able to make a big splash with “Finding Dory.”

1.) Pixar is the Movie Business’ Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval

Over the course of 17 films, Pixar has established a reputation for excellence that is nearly unparalleled. Perhaps only Miramax during its ’90s heyday rivals the Pixar association with quality films, and its run of “Pulp Fiction,” “The English Patient” and “The Crying Game »

Watch a clip from the new Pixar short, ‘Piper’

13 June 2016 10:44 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Piper clip: Our first look at Pixar’s brand new short.

The Piper clip is below – the short film will debut in cinemas before Finding Dory, which is released in cinemas in July.

Piper clip: The short film will open with Finding Dory in July.

The folks over at Den Of Geek have secured a first look clip from Pixar’s new short Piper, which will screen before their new feature film Finding Dory, which opens in the UK next month.

The short tells the story of a hungry sandpiper hatchling who ventures from her nest for the first time to dig for food by the shoreline. The only problem is, the food is buried beneath the sand where scary waves roll up onto the shore.

The Piper clip isn’t very long, but it does give you a look at the high quality animation on display in the short film.

Piper is directed by the animation genius that is Alan Barillaro who has worked on almost every Pixar film as an animator, including A Bug’s Life, Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc., and the Academy Award®-winning features Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Wall•E and Brave. On those last three features, Barillaro was given the role of supervising animator and was therefore responsible for overseeing the team of animators who worked to bring the characters in the films to life.

Following his work on Brave, Barillaro went to work with Pixar’s software development team to help craft an animation tool that would help provide additional creative flexibility to the studio’s filmmaking process. As a proof of concept, Barillaro created a short animation test about a small bird – a sandpiper – on a beach. This animation test soon grew into a full-fledged short film, Piper, directed by Barillaro which, as previously mentioned, will be debuting theatrically with Finding Dory on July 29, 2016.

Check out the superb Piper clip below, and look out for it in cinemas very soon.

Meet Piper in the First Clip from Pixar's New Animated Short

13 June 2016 5:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in April, we got our first look at the new Pixar animated short Piper, which will be attached to theatrical prints of the studio's animated sequel Finding Dory when it hits theaters this weekend. With just a few more days left until this short is unveiled, the first clip has surfaced, featuring the title character in action. This brief scene shows how tough it is for a young sandpiper to find food along a crowded beach.

The story centers on a baby sandpiper who is trying to both find food, and overcome hydrophobia, the fear of water. Longtime Pixar animator Alan Barillaro makes his directorial debut with this short film, which was inspired by the numerous birds he used to observe while running along the shoreline, just a mile from Pixar's Emeryville, California headquarters. While this short marks Alan Barillaro's directorial debut, he has worked as a Pixar animator for nearly two decades.

Alan Barillaro first joined Pixar to work on 1998's A Bug's Life. He also worked on Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Wall-e, Brave and Monsters University, along with the shorts Jack-Jack Attack, Igor and Lifted. The first-time director revealed in April that he originally started toying with the character as a test, but he was encouraged to keep working on the project by his mentor, Finding Dory director Andrew Stanton. Here's what Alan Barillaro had to say about working with his mentor back in April.

"You always want to show directors, 'Hey, are these cool tools you'd like to use to make films?' So I showed Andrew the Piper tests thinking I was very much just showing him a test, but he kept poking at me, like, 'It's a cool test, but keep working on that story.' And then John [Lasseter] did the same. There's remarkable encouragement at Pixar that when you think of an innovative idea, don't forget the story. It was their encouragement or else I would have stopped at the test phase."

Since the short film is just six minutes long, and it hits theaters in just a few short days, it seems unlikely we'll get any more footage from Piper. The short film will most likely be included on the Finding Dory home video release later next year. While we wait for both Finding Dory and Piper to hit theaters in just a few short days, take a look at this clip below courtesy of Youtube. »

Peter In Wonderland?

12 May 2016 5:49 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

In Disney’s attempt to cash in on both newly acquired properties (Marvel, Lucasfilm) and its classic catalog (Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland series, Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book), it’s now looking to create a mash-up of two of its beloved animated films from the 1950s, both of which are based on classic literature: Lewis Carroll’s Alice’S Adventures In Wonderland and J.M. Barrie’s play and novel Peter Pan; Or, The Boy Who Wouldn’T Grow Up.

The twist? In the newly announced live-action film — titled Come Away — to be directed by Brenda Chapman (codirector of the Mouse House’s successful Brave), Alice and Peter are siblings. Taking place before either of their adventures, the script by Marissa Kate Goodhill has the children mourning the death of an older brother and dealing with their parents’ anguish, prompting them to find solace in fantasy worlds.

Brave director to make live-action debut with Alice in Wonderland/Peter Pan prequel Come Away

12 May 2016 1:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Brave director Brenda Chapman is set to make her live-action directing debut with Come Away, which is said to be envisioned as a prequel to the classic tales Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan.

The premise reads: “Before Alice went to Wonderland, and before Peter became Pan, they were brother and sister. When their eldest brother dies in a tragic accident, they each seek to save their parents from their downward spirals of despair until finally they are forced to choose between home and imagination, setting the stage for their iconic journeys into Wonderland and Neverland.”

Producers Michelle Manning, Leesa Kahn and Andrea Keir said on the news: “Brenda is a true visionary and her previous experience in perfectly creating imaginary worlds with such precise detail is exactly what is needed to bring to life Marissa’s enchanting script, which explores the universal theme of the importance of family, »

Brave's Director Brenda Chapman to Helm 'Come Away' A Prequel to 'Alice In Wonderland' and Peter Pan'

11 May 2016 7:24 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Brenda Chapman, one of the Oscar winning directors of Brave, has signed on to direct the live-action fantasy adventure Come Away, which will be a prequel to both Alice In Wonderland and Peter Pan.

Here's the synopsis:

Before Alice went to Wonderland, and before Peter became Pan, they were brother and sister. When their eldest brother dies in a tragic accident, they each seek to save their parents from their downward spirals of despair until finally they are forced to choose between home and imagination, setting the stage for their iconic journeys into Wonderland and Neverland.

The script was written by Marissa Kate Goodhill.  I did a quick search for her on IMDb, but I couldn't find any entries, so I'd say it's safe to assume Come Away is her first produced screenplay.

There is one redeeming quality of this ‘Peter Pan’-‘Alice in Wonderland’ mashup

11 May 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you were already exasperated by Disney’s long lineup of live action remakes and by the studio race to win the multiverse game, prepare to be all the more exasperated. If you’re excited by all the mashups and reimaginings and crossovers, then, well, you may be happy to hear this news. In the works in Tinseltown is a prequel to both Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan.

Brenda Chapman, who directed the Academy Award-winning animated film “Brave,” will make her live-action directing debut in “Come Away,” a prequel to “Alice in Wonderland” and “Peter Pan.”

11 Marvel Studios movies awaiting a greenlight

With news that a Black Widow movie may finally be moving, we look at 11 Marvel films stuck in development...

When the next Avengers movie hits cinemas, it will have been ten years since Marvel Studios came onto the scene since Iron Man. At the time of writing, they've already released 13 movies and so far (touch wood), there hasn't really been a single clunker among them, and certainly no box office bombs.

The studio also has dates staked out for the next 11 movies, including sequels to Thor, Guardians Of The Galaxy and Ant-Man, along with films based around Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Black Panther and Captain Marvel, in the run-up to a two part Avengers movie that will tie off a lot of the franchise's over-arcing storyline. They've got plenty to be getting on with, but there have been a few projects along the way that didn't quite get the green light. »

By now you’ve surely been spoiled by the major character death on The Originals this week. No one could save Cami from the super strength werewolf bite by Lucien, and no one wanted to save her more than Klaus which made this episode all the more sad. All the elements for a beautiful and dignified death scene were there in Cami’s final moments, right down to the Birdy song playing in the background. She truly got the best possible send-off with Freya treating her physically as best she could while Klaus tended to her mentally. They shared one last stroll

Disney Premieres 27 Minutes of ‘Finding Dory’ at CinemaCon

13 April 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are movie studios and then there is Disney.

With its arsenal of Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm, the studio has long ago transcended the bonds of Hollywood to become an entertainment behemoth with no equal.

Most of Disney’s rivals — perpetually finding themselves punching up as the studio rolls out fresh “Star Wars” spinoffs and “Avengers” sequels — send their top emissaries to CinemaCon. Sony Pictures sent its head Tom Rothman to woo theater owners. Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara hit Sin City to praise the theatrical experience and take a thinly veiled swipe at Screening Room. And Paramount vice chairman Rob Moore interviewed Megan Fox and Will Arnett to promote a new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”

Disney sent distribution chief Dave Hollis to fill in for motion picture head Alan Horn. Moreover, the company, which prefers to reveal teasers and break news at D23, its annual fan expo, mostly relied »
