valid criticisms of Anita Sarkeesian: Her unclear reasoning behind still asking for money for her videos, her absolutely glacial rate of video making, the fact that she analyzes games which she knows little about, or how her views on Feminism do not represent all schools of feminist thought

invalid criticisms of Anita Sarkeesian: She hates men, she wants all games to pander to women, she wants to take our games away!!!!

still completely blown away by how amazingly well done this little guy is—they gave him an incredibly expressive face without anthropomorphicising it one bit. he doesn’t have a shorter snout or bigger eyes or a more rounded forehead or anything, he looks exactly like a raccoon. but you can see every little irritated or devious or sad thought he has.

just… amazing. i want that animation team to win some fucking awards. 

I love the design of this guy <3

James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.

From the film’s IndieGo page:

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

Omg this looks amazing, and look at all those amazing vets working on it, I adore 2D animation and I hope that more projects like this will pop up to help reinvigorate it for future generations because it shouldn’t become obsolete because of 3D animation, it’s simply another tool to work with to get stories across and it has a lot of merit so let’s not let it disappear!
