John Lasseter and Tangled

I hadn't been over to Onanimation for a while so it was a real treat to see some shorts and things that I had missed out on.

First up is the beautiful Untangling the Look of Tangled.  fine panel of Disney artists, including Art Director Dave Goetz, discuss in great detail the design of the film as well as working with Glen Keane. The presentation includes a great animation test, of finding the character of Max (the horse) that was so great it made it to the film. This is a wonderful watch for all.

A Day In The Life of John Lasseter
Onanimation also featured this clip that has shown up almost everywhere as well. Disney/Pixar has released a 20 min video documentary on John Lasseter during the production of "Cars 2". This offers great insight from picking out the right Hawiian shirt to perfecting a score and changing a line in the film after the animation has been done. I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Last up, is this Pixar Intro Parody by College Humor, where Luxo Jr is judged and sentenced for his murder!! Normally, we're not keen on the posting of shorts, but this one just made me laugh and I hope you guys enjoy it too.
