Merry Christmas to everyone! I'm not going to give into political correctness and wish you Happy Holidays. Sorry, but it is Merry Christmas from me. I'm so sick of everyone tip toeing around afraid to offend others. If you don't celebrate Christmas, good for you. You can still accept a Merry Christmas without getting your panties in a twist.
Now for the Christmas animation wrapup. ...continued...
I wrote my first "exclusive" content for CGCHAR and posted it this morning. You can't see it here, but you can see it there! Hop over to www.cgchar-animation.com and you will find it. The story actually has to do with "The Business of Animation". Imagine that!
Hoodwinked will be opening nationwide in a couple of weeks. It has received a mild reception from those that I talked to that went to the premiere in LA. There really is no reason to bash the movie, we all know its short comings. Lets see how it performs when its wide release happens. Many eyes are watching carefully.
Pixar and Disney still haven't announced anything. So much for Jobs psychic abilities (he said an announcement would be made by year end).
A recent headline announced that animated films are the most lucrative of releases between 2000 and 2004. This really shouldn't be a surprise. The amount of animated films heading to the theaters in 2006 should be proof enough.
Rumor has it, a CG Chicken Little tv series is in the works.
The following items are still on my Christmas list. I have been informed by my wife that I will not be receiving either of these! The nerve!!
* Palm Lifedrive, Treo, or T5 handheld.
* A decent video camera (I recently dropped our last one).
