TMNT > Astroboy

There is a new article from Ninjatron at his AstroBoy world blog talk about TMNT, imagi and Astroboy, there is a really encouraging article to me and the crew here.


"March 23rd, 2007 was a big day for
Ninja Turtles fans and animation enthusiasts, as TMNT was released to theaters in North America and elsewhere around the world. It was the very first feature-length film from Imagi Animation Studios, who are, of course, set to bring AstroBoy to cinemas in 2009. I am a HUGE fan of the Turtles, and have been since I first became aware of their existence, so I was definitely looking forward to this movie when it was announced. Not only did I enjoy the film immensely for what it was when I saw it on its release date, I also saw it as an important step towards the future of animated film making, which is where our boy Astro comes in.

Not only does TMNT look spectacular, with its use of colors, textures, and lighting, but if one takes into account how the budget of this film is a meager fraction of a comparable animated movie from a company like Pixar, then Imagi's achievements with this movie are even more incredible. The aspect of the film that I thought was best realized was the attention paid to the backgrounds. The scenery itself had a very lived-in feeling and truly captured what I would expect the TMNT universe to look like. Obviously there are some talented artists and animators working at Imagi, and they clearly know how to construct a world that contains unbelievable characters and situations in a believable and visually appealing setting......
As a fan of animated films and classic anime characters, it makes me happy to know that the AstroBoy movie is being handled by Imagi, who did an amazing job in capturing the spirit of the Ninja Turtles. AstroBoy is a story that is not only historically important, but also has a unique spirit of its own to be captured as well. Time will tell if the AstroBoy movie will live up to the legacy of the title character, but judging from TMNT, I am more than willing to give Imagi the benefit of the doubt.
And while I'm looking forward to AstroBoy, I'll also be hoping for another Turtles movie!

感觸





photos by jack lee

看到這些相片,特如其來很大的感觸。他們都是一起工作的伙伴,其中有些更由團隊成立至今一直工作。未至於出生入死,但一起經歷過的如數星星。

雖然做了幾廿年人,有人辭官歸故里、有人漏夜趕科場。工作上的離離合合算是平常事... 對於分離,我就是從來都不習慣。特別那些投契的、欣賞的、一起經歷過很多... 雖然千萬個不願意。不論是為世所迫、還是另有理想。每個不同的人生階段都有自己最想追求的一片天。

在我們每人頭上的那片天重疊的那段日子就應該豁出去吧!Thank you for everything and Please remember, I am so proud of you!!

希望您找到想要的幸福。相信在不久的將來,會再一起打金兵、匈奴、洋鬼子!!
