Laika has made a name for themselves with their hand-crafted stop-motion animated feature films like Coraline, ParaNorman and the upcoming movie Boxtrolls. But the Portland-based animation studio wants to help hand-drawn animation make a comeback. During the Boxtrolls Hall H presentation at 2014 San Diego Comic Con International, Laika head Travis Knight would like to do a 2D hand-drawn animated feature film. Find out more about a possible Laika hand-drawn animation feature film, after the jump.
when people point out problematic and offensive things in media we are really sincerely not trying to ruin it for you
i know it feels like that and sometimes finding out an author is shitty or that a movie is racist can really sour the story you mightve enjoyed, but these are REALLY important things to acknowledge and yes, get angry about
because if no one is getting upset and people keep making excuses for these kinds of things they will continue to be considered acceptable and there’s no way any effort will be made to change things
I don’t know if anyone would be interested, but JFI
Saitama Municipal Urawa High School, nicknamed Ichiritsu Urawa or Ichiura, is the public no-seed school that played at the Koshien 1988 and got in the best 4! That “refreshing sensation” that inspired Higuchi-sensei to create Ookiku Furikabutte.
They were relaxed at Koshien and had fun playing 5 games.
Nakamura-kantoku (coach): I told them “because it’s the most fun scene so go and play”. I can’t believe we are in the best 4, it wasn’t supposed to be like that….
The ace Hoshino-kun pitched in all games, all of them complete games without relieving, including 2 games with extra-innings. He didn’t smile during tournament in 1987, but he could show his refreshing smile because they came to the Koshien!
"You had a refreshing face even though you lost”
"Yes, there is no regret at all"
"You came this far at the Koshien. Thinking back, how was the Koshien for you?"
"Well, I can’t believe it. Really. It was a dream within a dream so it’s true happiness we could come this far”
“People need to be encouraged. People need to be reminded of how wonderful they are. People need to be believed in—told that they are brave and smart and capable of accomplishing all the dreams they dream and more. Remind each other of this.”—Stacey Jean Speer (via emotional-algebra)
