Happy 60th Birthday Glen Keane <3
One of the most amazing, most talented artists came to this world, bringing us so much magic and pureness, the one who got thousands of people into the world of animation, and giving them the reason to dream, thank you for creating these masterpieces, thank you for changing so many lives, and in particularly mine, my ultimate idol <3
It’s true, if it wasn’t for Cinderella and The Little Mermaid, Disney would have been closed long time ago, Walt Disney put all his money on Cinderella, if it flopped in the box office it would have been the end of Disney, same goes with The Little Mermaid, both movies were a huge success, so huge that Cinderella helped Walt building Disneyland, and The Little Mermaid rose Disney from the Dark ages to the Renaissance.
"Frozen" has thawed out a new spot in box office history. This weekend, the Oscar-winning Disney film became the top-grossing animated film of all time with $1.072 billion in domestic and international sales.
The film has surpassed original record holder “Toy Story 3,” which had earned $1.063 billion. It takes up a berth as the No. 10 biggest global blockbuster, and is also the first billion-dollar film from Disney Animation Studios.
It surpassed Toy Story 3 and The Lion King
This is huge O_O, first animated DISNEY movie to gain them a billion$
there are a lot other amazing Disney animation, but going through the making of and seeing how trouble and patience the animators went through is rather inspiring and personally i love this kind of animation, even though love the Illustration-like animation too.
and i would like to know what other people’s list as well ?
that is frickin animated rain what the hell
this is miyazaki rain, which means that every frame was hand-drawn
This is art,
I needed this.
That’s not Miyazaki, that’s Makoto Shinkai's Garden of Words, he’s known for his amazing backgrounds, i hope you guys give him a shot and watch his movies, there are some hella amazing anime film makers other than Miyazaki.
Makoto Shinkai's most memorable movies :
Alan Menken : July 22, 1949 (63)
Occupation : Composer, Songwriter, Pianist, Record Producer.
Movies : The Little Mermaid - Beauty and the Beast - Aladdin - Pocahontas -The Hunchback of Notre Dame - Hercules - Tangled. (Click on the movie to listen)
He’s #1 Disney composer, and one of the pioneers in getting Disney out of the Dark ages along with Glen Keane and John Lasseter. His long time friend Howard Ashman was the Lyricist to most of the work Alan has done, He thinks his best work is at The Hunchback of Notre Dame and that he topped himself in that movie, he holds the record of the most Academy Awarded man alive with 8 Oscars with another 11 nominations.
"We’d like to dedicate this to our guardian angle, that’s my son, Ryder Buck. Thank you, Ryder." -Chris Buck, Director of Frozen, on accepting the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film
Chris Buck’s youngest son, Reed, goes to my school, so I know the story of what happened to Ryder Buck, who Chris Buck, the Director of Frozen, thanked in his Oscar speech, and I wanted to share it with you because I feel like 99% of the audience in that room and across America did not, and still do not know the meaning of Mr. Buck’s acceptance speech.
Ryder Buck was diagnosed with Stage 4 testicular cancer in August of 2012. He loved music and was aspiring to be a musician, and remained positive through everything he went through. His treatments began to work, and his test results showed he was cancer free in April of 2013.
In October, my neighbors were having a party which my parents went to, and Ryder’s mother was telling everyone how excited and ecstatic she was that her son was free of cancer.
A week or so later, Ryder died in a car crash. He was hit by two cars on the freeway. Over 1,200 people attended his memorial service in November. The service was only to last 90 minutes, but as so many people showed up, it ended up being over 3 and a half hours.
Ryder had died 24 days before Frozen hit theaters.
This is so sad…
Oh how awful! I hope he was proud of his fathers work. =[
