  1. Honestly, i like the classic cartoons much better than the 3D animations these days! The stills from "The Princess and the Frog" look amazing. I hope they (Disney) continue to make cartoons.

  2. I really wish this was happening at a better time (for me, at least). As far as I'm concerned, Goldberg's book is up there with "The Animator's Survival Kit" and "The Illusion of Life". Phenomenal stuff.

    Good thing they put videos of these webinars up afterward. :)

  3. Well this promised to be very informative.

    Although 7 – 8pm (PST) is a bit late for me. That's just about midnight where I live.
