  2. A History of Women in Animation: Mothers of a Medium

    Supergirly

    When I first decided to do this article, I was naive. With all the modern resources at my fingertips, I thought finding information on the ladies behind animation would be super easy. “Oh, you sweet summer child,” has run through my head a few times, as I struggled to find even the most basic pieces of information. Standard books used for animation history classes barely mentioned women in passing, much less their achievements. Because of the technical nature of animation, there is an underlying sense of sexism which is not unlike the sexism that exists in the tech space. This is true even today, where it’s not uncommon to be one of a handful of girls within a studio setting. The lack of notable female animation professionals within history only reinforces this assumption that it is ‘boys club’ industry. As a result, the names of women who have moved the industry forward have faded. This is my attempt to bring them back into the spotlight.

  8. Thought Wreck-It Ralph Didn’t Get Enough Time In Other Games? This Deleted Scene Shows One More.

    and let it be known

    In Disney's Wreck-It Ralph, the lead character says goodbye to his own game to explore other opportunities. While we see cameo characters from tons of real games, Ralph only visits the fictional "Hero’s Duty" and "Sugar Rush." But apparently there was another left out for time and thanks to the blu-ray we can see a little bit of what it would have been like. Take a look at the storyboard animation for the game "Extreme Easy Living 2," in which Ralph looks...a little different.

    i'll just leave this here

    Oh, good, well now I know what Wreck-It Ralph was about. Now if someone can just find me a supercut of all of Sergeant Calhoun's scenes and maybe, like, the bit where Vanellope becomes president, I wont even have to watch the actual movie. Yes, this video contains spoilers. (via io9.)

  13. Wreck-It Ralph Gets Its Medal, Wins Big at the Annie Awards

    I'll Allow It

    Wreck-It Ralph was the King (Candy) at last night's Annie Awards, beating out Brave and ParaNorman for Best Animated Feature. It was nominated alongside Hotel Transylvania, Frankenweenie, Rise of the Guardians, The Pirates! Band of Misfits, and The Rabbi's Cat too, but honestly, did any of those have a chance? Actually, speaking realistically ParaNorman was a long shot as well, but I really (really really really... ) wanted it to win and may have deluded myself as to its chances a little.

  14. Watch the Entire Paperman Animated Short Film Right Here

    If you weren't already aware, both Wreck-It Ralph and the animated short film that preceded it, Paperman, are amazing. That's assuming you're a human being that has emotions and not some kind of shell that's built to withstand even the strongest of feelings. Paperman's even been nominated for an Oscar in the Best Animated Short Film category. Unfortunately for everyone everywhere, there's been no good way to actually see the short after Ralph left theaters. Well, until now.

  16. Power Up: East London’s Brick Lane Gets an 8-Bit Makeover to Promote Wreck-It Ralph Release

    Disney's Wreck-It Ralph may have come and gone for us yanks in the United States -- hey, we at least have an expedited digital release to look forward to this February -- but our friends over in the United Kingdom are gearing up for the film's countrywide debut, and they did it the best way they knew how: By turning East London's Brick Lane shopping thoroughfare into #8bitLane this past weekend. Although Wreck-It Ralph won't be hitting theaters across the pond until February 8th, Londoners were treated with the opportunity to explore the world as the animated feature's titular hero would see it, complete with life-size 8-bit models of trees, dogs, pigeons, and other common urban sights -- all designed and crafted by sculptor Aden Hynes and his team at Sculpture Studios. Fortunately, the promotion wasn't plagued by adverse weather conditions or programming bugs, and so far as we can tell, no one was injured by having a plumber land on them. Keep reading for a look at the results, and the work that went into them.

  18. Doing It Right: Wreck-It Ralph Available for Download Before DVD and Blu-Ray

    Wreck-It Ralph was perhaps, without a doubt, one of the greatest odes to the modern video game industry as a whole and the golden age of video arcades during the early '80s. As such, if you're one of the unfortunate few that happened to miss it, well, it's a downright shame. Luckily, Disney won't have people waiting too long for a market release as the company has announced that Wreck-It Ralph will be available on February 12th... only as a digital download and via streaming services in both HD and 3D. That's right, those with mobile devices and computers will be kicking back and enjoying Wreck-It Ralph in a few weeks, while everyone else anticipating a DVD and Blu-Ray release is going to have to sit tight and ride it out until springtime.

  20. Wreck-It Ralph: How Video Games Should Be?

    Essay

    In 108 minutes, Wreck-It Ralph accomplishes something the entire video game industry has failed to achieve for more than 30 years: Wreck-It Ralph contains more positive and nuanced female characters than the entire current video game landscape. Three major consoles. Hundreds of major and indie developers. Mobile and handheld gaming. Thousands of writers, programmers and artists. Millions, maybe even billions, in marketing dollars. All schooled by one movie. I applaud the filmmakers, but I’m utterly baffled, because they made it look easy. And for so long, we have been told it’s “hard” to sell games with female characters we can look up to, care for and relate to. I think $49.1 million at the box office, which is Disney Animation’s highest opening weekend in history, tells a very different story. Listen up gamers, it’s time for a revolution. Let’s start with Vanellope Von Schweetz and her home game, Sugar Rush. Editor's Note: The rest of this post contains SPOILERS. Read at your own risk!
