Did you know that "Villa" means error in Icelandic? That theme can be seen in this video by Guillermo Daldavo, an Argentine graphic designer, art director and motion graphics animator based in Barcelona Spain. The thinking behind this work is focused upon purposely creating error and distortion to enhance the audio visual experience. Villa was produced in conjunction with the Punto y Raya Festival in Reykjavik, Iceland which will take place at Harpa Concert Hall from January 30 to February 2 2014. The audio for Villa was created by Bernard Arce. Take a look at this unique animated expression...

That's the subject of "Caminandes: Gran Dillama" which is the second episode in the series of animated shorts. This is an Open Movie from the Blender Foundation in the Netherlands. Blender is a popular CG animation software which is offered free to anyone who would like to learn it, animate with it and help develop it.

Pixar Layoffs - November 22 2013

Pixar has announced a layoff of about 5% of their 1200 person workforce. That's around 60 people who've lost their jobs just before the Thanksgiving.Holiday in the US.

Tough when that happens anywhere.

Pixar will not have a feature film in release for 2014. The movie they're working on - The Good Dinosaur - has had its release date pushed from May 2014 to November 2015. That's a stretch of a year and a half.

This was first published in the LA Times article here.

Pixar had previously shut down their studio in Vancouver BC so the trend continues towards shedding weight and making adjustments.

I'm certain the extra time will make for an extra special movie.

Meanwhile, here we have another example of why it's wise to develop an independent aspect to one's career cuz ya never know what's going to happen with work-for-hire. This is a great opportunity for artists who've lost their employment to develop something new and exciting and go with crowdfunding and see what happens!

AnimationNation is here to help get the word out about what you're doing. 

Wishing everyone good luck and good times creating!
