There's so much great content coming to us from the forums that's worth featuring on AN's homepage we're experiencing a backup. Switching to this new format has really made a positive difference. 

Here's something that was posted by longtime ANer Jeff Nevins. You may recall Jeff's project was featured here on August 5 regarding TangerinePop, a company that produces online video games. Jeff posted a music video produced by Ghostbot, an outstanding commercial animation studio located in San Francisco. It's just been released. The video's entitled "Good Girl Bad Girl". It's a lot of fun to watch and I bet it was a blast to work on.

Here's the topic on the AN Forums which also features credits from the film. Check out the video...

Wacom's latest product has just been made public as their YouTube video went up only yesterday. Longtime ANer Glen Moyes just posted this topic on the Forums and I'm eager to share it with all our visitors to the homepage.

Imagine drawing with a pen on paper, then being able to digitally transfer what you drew to your computer as a vector file by plugging in a devise that has captured the memory of your drawing. It may have been a futuristic vision at one time, but it's a reality today. Take a look at this video and see for yourself. The Inkling in action...

Worker abuse at Disney and Mattel toy factories - China
Written by Charles   
Monday, 29 August 2011 18:43

The image above on the left is from an article dated November 26, 2004. The one on the right from another article dated August 19, 2005.

This is nothing new. Reports of abuse of workers, skirting labor laws, child labor, slave labor conditions, incredibley long work weeks, this is behind the sweatshop practices in factories in China which produce most of the toys that are marketed on the planet, including virtually all the toys sold by the Disney and Mattel corporations. 

For years, these companies have stated that they will investigate the situations at the factories they employ to produce their toy products, and yet the allegations continue to come to the public through the press.  Will anything ever be done to ensure some basic standards in the toy factories these companies utilize or is humanity something that doesn't suit the bottom line.

Initiated by long time ANer Greg Boone, the topic is being developed on the AN Forums. Please follow the link to read articles and commentary associated with this important issue.

Fun with Animated Music Videos
Written by Charles   
Sunday, 28 August 2011 18:01

We've always had a special place in our hearts for animated music videos on AN. Lately I thought to feature a few that have gone under the radar with us over the past few years. This topic on the AN Forums is being developed with several videos to enjoy, starting out with "Young Folks" by Peter, Bjorn & John with vocals by Victoria Bergsman of The Concretes. It's been on YouTube since 2006. In that time it's accumulated 20,613,050 views as of this writing, a testament to its continuing popularity.
