When I first heard about the Nerf Gun event, the most recent of the Last Saturdays gathering at Petra Gallerie in Beverly Hills last month, I imagined it was going to be a Nerf Gun shotout. I was mistaken, as it turned out to be an exhibit of amazing Nerf Gun works of art by a noted array of artists and designers. Take a look at the video below and see more at this link. Last Saturdays happens monthly on last Saturdays and are open to the public if you're over 21 years old, pioneered by the inimitable Snakebite Cortez.

If you haven't seen this short yet, by all means take a look. It's a great example of why I believe some of the best animation being created today originates from France.

Check out this video. A student film from the Ecole Supérieure des Métiers Artistiques (ESMA School of Arts) in Montpellier, France. It was completed in September, 2010. Here's the film's website. Also take a look at the excellent making of video for Mytho Logique. From the development art all the way through, it's incredible that students can do work this good. On par with just about any animation studio I can think of. You can see it here.

Here's something different. You can't buy it as a set, but it's made entirely of original Lego parts that can be purchased at BrickLink.com. Proof that da Vinci's contraption works. His genius celebrated centuries after his time. It's amazing what can be done with Legos. The person who assembled this model did a great job. You can see their website here.

Disney's 'Wreck-It Ralph' release November 2 2012

If you're wondering why the official poster for Disney's next animated feature, 'Wreck-It Ralph' looks like an old school video game, that's because it's about an old school video game character, a villain actually, who wants to prove that he's really a good guy.

What's interesting is that there's a character by the name of Fix-It Felix. Wonder if this is a reference to Paul Felix, Disney's top production designer.

Here's a video from Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim, California last August that gives us a little glimpse into the nature of the film. Follow Wreck-It Ralph on Facebook. Here's the link to the Forum topic.
