1. Pixar’s Brave

Oh, I fell in love this past weekend. I went to see Brave, in 3D. Well, done Pixar! I loved that the lead characters were both female. I loved that the princess was not pining away for some guy to rescue her. I loved that she was strong willed, independent, and yes, brave. She was a perfect character in that she was smart, yet sometimes fool hardy and also remorseful when she made mistakes. The film really touched me. Not just the storyline, but the fantastic animation also. I had not seen a Pixar 3D film before. This did not disappoint! The hairs on the bear alone made me shed a tear at their beauty. The scenes with Merida and her horse galloping through the forest were incredible. It was just so real feeling. It was a pure visual pleasure to watch!

The short before Brave, la Luna, was oh so sweet! Yes, I cried during that too. What a unique concept for a short! A beautifully, touching film. Loved it!

Since watching Brave, Merida has been on my mind a lot. In discussions with friends about the merits of the film, in debates with other friends on the film concept as a whole, and visually. Her hair is just so fantastic to draw. Sketching her expressions was so fun! Here are a few sketches I did today of her. It was a lot of fun. I plan on doing a full fan art piece very soon when I have time, maybe with her horse!

We’re going to be open all night long to discuss the Oscars. We’re still waiting to hear the winners, but here are the results of Cartoon Brew’s Oscar Survey. Will ILM’s Rango and Pixar’s La Luna win the Feature and Short categories as our readers predicted, or will there be upsets in those categories.

While we’re waiting to hear the results, take some time to read our interviews with the five nominees of the Best Animated Short category:

Wendy Tilby and Amanda Forbis (Wild Life)

Enrico Casarosa (La Luna)

Grant Orchard (A Morning Stroll)

Patrick Doyon (Sunday)

Bill Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg (The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore)

3. Pixar’s “La Luna” to premiere at LA Shorts Fest

Sadly, Disney and Pixar are limiting their participation at next week’s San Diego Comic Con (they are saving their previews and scoops for the D23 event next month in Anaheim). However, if you are in L.A. and skipping the Con, you have a unique opportunity to see the latest short from Pixar ahead of everyone else.

On Thursday July 21st, the North American premiere of La Luna will screen as part of the opening night program at the LA Shorts Fest. A special presentation of “The Making of Pixar’s La Luna” by its director Enrico Casarosa will take place on Sunday July 24th at 12 noon. The presentation will be “loaded with original artwork and insightful looks into Pixar’s production process”. Casarosa will “discuss the journey that led him to create this very personal short, and demonstrate the singularly artistic style by which the film was crafted”. Tickets go on sale July 14th online, the screenings will take place at Laemmle’s Sunset 5 in West Hollywood. If you aren’t at Comic Con, I’d recommend checking this out.
