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.
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.

Yo! My name is Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey…This is cosplay as Cinematic Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider Man. This suit was made by Jesse Covington( Writer and Costume Designer) and sewn by Sasha Williams ( Fashion Major graduate). Photos were taken by Pierre BL Brevard I specifically would like to thank Marvel Comics Artist Sara Pichelli for designing this character. I’m also very excited to see Olivier Coipel's work on Spider-Verse!
(Full shoot will be shot in New York itself just in time for NYCC)
Dope as hell!! I want this costume!
I am so here for this!
I N C R E D I B L E
I THOUGHT THIS WAS LEGIT PHOTOS FROM AN ACTUAL SPIDER MAN FILM??!
I was fiddling around with my gimp program trying to figure out how to animate something and did a rough animation of eyes opening/closing and changing colors.
The idea was of my character Hestia, the possession of the Greek Gods in her body are represented through her eyes. In this case, Nyx is taking over.
I’m pretty happy with how this turned out overall. Esp. since it’s my first gif ever and I’ve been wanting to animate eyes opening/closing for a year+ now. A lot more simplistic than I expected!
Erin! This is so good! Ahhhh, her eyeshape is so lovely and you did a good job overall on the blink. :D
I know you’re probably not looking for critique BUT YOU’RE GETTING IT ANYWAY (because I love you <3) Honestly the only thing I’d say at this point is you could probably afford to make the frames a little quicker on the eyes reopening? (not even by adding another frame, just speeding up the frame rate would probably do it) Adding more frames obvs. would smooth the animation out more, but it’s pretty clean as is tbh. The overall motion is good and it loops really really well!
These are the only movies that just keep getting better
FUCKING BEN KINGSLEY
I AM SO EXCITED
SO EFFING EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE AHHHHHH
MOTHER F*CKING LANCELOT.
((#Honesty Hour: As a Brit, I usually hate American films that do the whole Let’s Go To London! trope (ok maybe not HATE, but at least, have to put up with the same dumb jokes and kind of just ignore the cringe-y stereotypical parts of the film in order to get on with my life) but the FIRST clip they show of them in London is a lady throwing American stereotypes at HIM. /And then/ he’s all “that’s not even remotely right” I’m dying because it’s perfect. These films are freaking legendary.))
Please let yourself be proud of small things. Please do that. Please allow yourself to get really excited about playing a video game well or sending an ask you were nervous about or letting a bug outside or peeling the whole orange in one try. Please get so excited about that. Please. That’s so cool I’m so glad you did it.
"I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain."
