Floyd Norman - An Animated Life - Teaser 1 from Michael Fiore Films on Vimeo.

This teaser came up on my news feed a few days ago and I think it would be a very intresting documentry that looks at the life of Floyd Norman.

   World War Toons
By Carlina Prawirawidjaja

World War Toons is a multiplayer FPS game designed for VR and non-VR platforms by RELOAD Studios. I usually do not play a FPS game because I am very prone to motion sickness. This game, however, really caught my attention because of its cartoony look, the stylized animation style and the 2.5D look on the effects they are using in the game. Besides these, I also love how the weapons which are obtained by the players, capable to change the character's class instantly. While it might seem very convenient, I'm guessing the players probably still have to be very wise in choosing their starting jobs.

Each of the character's class also seems to have their own unique animation, of which strengthened characteristic of each class, makes them very likeable and appealing. The cartoony style also makes the game more appealing and accessible to younger audience. I personally feel that it reduces the stress and pressure that I usually get when I play a war game that has more realistic visual style. Having said that, I am sure that the game will be as intense and fun as other FPS games out there. In addition, the incorporation of the VR technology would definitely bring a whole new experience for the players who have not experienced VR yet. I would love to check this game out once it is released next year!

   Super Mansion

Chances are you've seen Robot Chicken at some point in your life. If you haven't, you probably know what it's about. This comes from the minds of that and Bryan Cranston (yes, THAT Bryan Cranston). It's a world where super heroes are old and no longer wanted, and they have to fight for relevancy. It's not really a new idea, but if you enjoy the lewd humor of Robot Chicken, you'll find a home with Super Mansion.

Let's face it, there's nothing more scary than the blank page or character standing in classic T-Pose in Maya!

In this TedX Talk, brilliant Pixar artist Ricky Nierva shows why we shouldn't be afraid of blank sheets.

This is really invaluable talk, it even covers how to make character designs inseparable from a story.

How character design details are crucial to the story and character personality.

Ricky goes over characters from 'Up' as a case study, I am damn sure you will love it!

Ricky Nierva was a Production Designer on Up.

He also has worked as Production Designer on Monster University. His credits include, Art director on Finding Nemo,

Monsters Inc. : Visual development, character designer, additional storyboarding & Story Artist on Toy Story 2
