More details about Disney’s Moana

Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans today for Moana, a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog, Aladdin).
In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.
“John and I have partnered on so many films—from The Little Mermaid to Aladdin to The Princess and the Frog,” said Clements. “Creating Moana is one of the great thrills of our career. It’s a big adventure set in this beautiful world of Oceania.”
“Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” Musker said. “She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”

'Yearbook' project for my animation pre-production class - come up with a character and draw them each year from preschool through high school. My character is a boy raised by wolves :) I had 2 days to make these, and there's a lot of parts I wanted to rework before presenting them anywhere - but I have about 7 projects that are at this stage right now and I've been feeling bad about keeping everything under wraps for so long!

In the mean time I just started using twitter, and will try to post some of that stuff more often over there! Would love to say hello to and meet more of you guys there! @BearsAreRed

I just finished up the most exciting AND the most stressful month of the last year(at least), if any of you guys are interesting I’ve  been wanting to talk about a little of what I’ve been up to!

What is left, if even faith can die? Nameless asked.
New life, replied the Scientist.

What is the point of a gate that does not lead anywhere? asked Nameless, turning to avoid the glare of the setting sun.
The Scientist squinted ahead as the semicircular disk continued its downward trajectory past the horizon, and finally replied. To frame that which we otherwise might not notice.

Thank you so much to everyone who bought Nameless & the Scientist Book 1! I’m so stoked by your support. The book is currently being printed (!!) and I’ll start mailing them out on the 27th May! (when the shipment arrives)

If the Scientist were here, he would have told Nameless that this was a window, and windows, unlike Gates, were not made for safe passage.
The Scientist was not here.

The New World Shopping Mall has been abandoned since 1999. It shut its doors after being condemned by local regulators. A few years later a massive fire destroyed the structure’s roof. Not long after that monsoon rains flooded the lower floors.
As a way to combat the spread of mosquitoes and other insects breeding in the stagnant water, locals introduced koi and catfish to the former mall. Not only did the fish take care of the pest problem, they’ve thrived. It is now one of the world’s largest urban ponds.

Chefchaouen, a small town in northern Morocco, has a rich history, beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful architecture, but what it’s most famous for are the striking and vivid blue walls of many of the buildings in its “old town” sector, or medina.

The maze-like medina sector, like those of most of the other towns in the area, features white-washed buildings with a fusion of Spanish and Moorish architecture. The brilliantly blue walls, however, seem to be unique to Chefchaouen. They are said to have been introduced to the town by Jewish refugees in 1930, who considered blue to symbolize the sky and heaven. The color caught on, and now many also believe that the blue walls serve to repel mosquitoes as well (mosquitoes dislike clear and moving water).

Whatever the reason, the town’s blue walls attract visitors who love to wander the town’s narrow streets and snap some beautiful photos.
