Something strange is going on in Brooklyn. A giant bread creature is poised to attack the city, aliens are living next door, a bear turns up missing, felt critters are walking & talking, and old people start hooking up on the internets. Maybe there's something funny in the water.

The Pratt Institute's Media Arts Department proudly presents the Traditional Animation thesis films of the graduating class of 2007, as well as selected shorts. Students will be in attendance for a Q&A to talk about their stop motion, 2-D computer animation, and hand-drawn films.

Free and open to the public, May 4th & 5th, 7pm at the Two Boots Pioneer Theater


We are a group of animators that attend Pratt Institute, located in Brooklyn, New York. Here is our archives of sketches, photos, and animations.

Movie Night Top 3

OK well...not exactly three, but the popular two are as follows:

Who Framed Roger Rabbit
and Secret of NIMH

So polling for the rest is pretty much done for nows...and all I have to ask everyone is to re-pick from either of these two. I know not many voted this time around, but we'll have a better poll next movie night when more people are at a meeting. Pick one of these two by tomorrow so I can make fliers.

Oh, and BTW...the movie will be shown this FRIDAY at 7:30 pm in E-2 at the ARC as planned. I've got the room all checked out for then.

Ink & Paint in G-50

Hey Animators-
So we finally have that ink & paint system set up in G-50. Almost. The camera stand isn't there yet, and the software needs a key-number which I will add tomorrow morning. In the meantime, the computer has iTunes and a big harddrive, so the next time you go to Pratt, bring a few CDs and add to the G-50 jukebox. I'll bring my Tex Avery music CD tomorrow,

Pixar: Bought by Disney

Apparently the most recent news is that Disney has finally bought Pixar. It now owns all Pixar's shares of stock and thereby the company.

It was on CNN news on television, it might not have made the website yet.

Project Development class needs people!

Hey, everyone, this is my first message here-- I'm glad to be a part of the community.

I've all ready posted this message on the appropriate facebook groups, and I'm trying to get the message across to as many people as possible. Here it is again, for anyone who's missed it elsewhere:

Rachel Johnson's Friday morning Project Development class is in desperate need of new recruits. It's a great class (anyone'll tell you) and will be totally worth it-- if you have a free Friday morning, please seriously consider switching in.

The catch is that the class is at 8 AM (which I know is hard, but it ends at 11, and then you have the whole day open!). Still, Rachel has said she might not be doing it much longer, so get in while you can, and get it while it's hot.

This is a learning opportunity, everyone, and if you can do it I suggest you take advantage.


If you can get this message to any who need apply, I would be eternally grateful to you. This means film majors and anyone else who will deal with story. Thanks very much.

mugging victim draws his own police sketch

AFTER a burglar broke into caricaturist Bill “Weg” Green’s Heathmont home on Sunday, it took the 82-year-old just seconds to draw his attacker. Fifteen minutes later, patrolling police caught a suspect — and Mr Green’s drawing proved they had the right man.
