Each year post-2000 sounds more and more Sci-Fi.
I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed it's 2006 and we don't have rayguns or flying cars.
Yet another childhood hope smashed. hahaha
Featuring over 500 works of original art on loan for the first time from Pixar Animation Studios, the show includes paintings, concept art, sculptures, and an array of digital installations. The exhibition also includes a complete retrospective of Pixar films. Demonstrating the symbiotic relationship between traditional and digital media pioneered by the studio over its twenty-year history.
The curator of the show said, "We wanted to make sure that people understood that computer animation wasn't created by pushing a button. The preparation work is done with traditional pencil and paper just like animation has always been done."
The show will run through February 6, 2006. More here.
"Stop-motion pioneer Willis O'Brien and sculptor Marcel Delgado animated Kong using two 18-inch armatures; metal skeletons covered with sponge rubber, latex rubber, and fur. The two puppets had distinguishably different heads, one used in the log bridge and T-rex battle sequences, and the other used for all of the New York scenes and the balance of the Skull Island scenes. These puppets were not only incredibly realistic and detailed artworks, but the metal framework inside the T-rex Battle Armature was durable enough to survive the grueling shooting schedule of the original film, and later for SON OF KONG."
$475, for rich single fanboys.
