I will wake up at three AM
And I will roll over
Into your arms.
You will rub my back
Until I fall back to sleep.
I will wait for that.
Michael Lee on animating Frozen
So that’s their (blatantly misogynistic) excuse for scrapping all but two of the female characters; that they’re too hard to animate? Those emotional female characters, they’re all the same, right? Here’s a hint: their “femaleness” isn’t what’s making them indistinguishable.
I read this in the most whiny baby voice imaginable (via kerly-fries)
An animator actually saying out loud that he thinks all women are the same.
Just like most storytellers who actually get their work funded in this patriarchal society of ours, he thinks women are just not worth getting to know for real. Men are easy to imagine all kinds of traits and differences for. Men are varied and rich with interesting thoughts and every kind of man is pleasing to see on the screen whether he’s big or small or dark or light or handsome or goofy or just interesting-looking. Women are only worth putting on the screen if they are young white blonde pretty things, and aren’t they all just the same?????? (via isympathizewithlinus)
things that are really hard to animate but worth investing the time and energy and creativity and technological innovation and money in to make sure they’re portrayed as close to life as possible:
things that are not worth it:

Reality rejected. Sokka’s statue is in front of the library, holding up a book, curb-stomping Wan Shi Tong.
