My name’s Eep and this is my family: T h e C r o o d s. If you weren’t clued in already by the animal skins and sloping foreheads: w e ’ r e c a v e m e n.
what breaks my heart is that Guy followed his parents’ dying words literally.
"Don’t hide. Live. Follow the sun. You’ll make it to tomorrow"
Guy does just that. He follows the sun to get to that place: tomorrow.
but it’s also symbolism to looking forward to a bright future, and I JUST CANT WITH THIS MOVIE
It’s finally here: The Art of DreamWorks Animation!!!
Founded in 1994 by Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and David Geffen, DreamWorks Animation instantly became a world-renowned animation studio. Though its earliest films, such as The Prince of Egypt, feature traditional hand-drawn cel animation, DreamWorks soon forayed into claymation with Chicken Run and Wallace & Gromit, and pioneered advanced computer animation with films such as The Croods, Megamind, and How to Train Your Dragon.
Brimming with concept art, preproduction designs, and character sketches, The Art of DreamWorks Animation marks the studio’s 20th anniversary and offers unprecedented behind-the-scenes access into its archives. An introduction by DreamWorks cofounder Katzenberg provides insider perspective on the studio’s most popular films, as does running commentary from artists and directors on all of DreamWorks’ 30 films to date.
Last one for tonight. Genderbent Guy and Belt from The Croods.
A Quick Thought on the How to Train Your Dragon Trilogy and DreamWorks’ reputation…
If DreamWorks and director Dean DeBlois can pull this trilogy off — and after seeing DeBlois’ work in Lilo & Stitch and the original HTTYD, I have faith that he can — Dragons could become the new face of DreamWorks.
I don’t know about you, but I think it’s time DW became famous for something other than Shrek. While Shrek was considered by many to be a revolutionary film at the time of its release, the dated jokes, cringe-worthy musical numbers and less than stellar sequels have seriously tarnished its once ‘edgy’ reputation — and DreamWorks’ rep along with it.
With the Dragons films, DW has the chance to reestablish themselves worldwide as the creators of high quality, critically claimed, audience-adored animation. Honestly, I can’t wait to see this happen!
