I've no idea what's going on in this behind-the-scenes look at Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, but I like it. The video has script-writing super computers (render farms), mo-cap suit delusions, and even a Street Fighter Hadouken attack. Fight!


Clearly tongue-in-cheek, and also a fun watch...



I don't mean to be a Pixartard, if this even exists, but when I see all the other animation studios' work, I can't help but think that Pixar is so compelled to actually tell a story, with will, beauty and feel. They're not just making a cartoon via computer graphics. They get so much from japanese animation, philosophy and life. Dreamworks and all the others have a lot to learn with them.

By the way, I recommend Up to each and every single soul who reads this, for it is a beautiful, amazing story.
