Indie Animation Spotlight

November 5, 2015

Don Bluth and Gary Oldman are teaming up once again to produce Dragon’s Lair: The Movie, which is based on a well loved 1980’s arcade game. The two creators have provided audiences with some great animated films like An American Tail, The Land Before Time, Anastasia and many others, so it will be exciting to see what they have planned for their next venture.

You could get a great sense of what they have in store by viewing the film‘s Kickstarter campaign, which launched last week; here Bluth and Oldman present their goals for the film and provide many perks for backers that range from limited animation drawings & Blue-ray copies of Dragon’s Lair: The Movie to character maquettes and animation master classes.

If you had to choose one film project to help support this year,  Dragon’s Lair: The Movie is definitely worth a look; please check out the campaign and help independent animation via donations and link sharing.

Canadian animator Lynn Dana Wilton is visiting Los Angeles and screening a program of animated shorts (including some of her own) from the Toronto Animated Image Society (TAIS) with whom she frequently works.

Join us at the Echo Park Film Center (http://www.echoparkfilmcenter.org/) at 8pm on Saturday, June 6th for the screening and a discussion afterwards on the challenges of independent filmmaking in the changing cultural landscape, as well as the benefits of surviving long enough to see your favorite techniques fade in and out of (and in) fashion.

Today’s featured indie animated project is the lovable Quipsters, an upcoming animated show for both children and children at heart. Its first season will begin this summer and the show features various fun and mischievous characters like the creepy cool Spooksters:

The creators of Quipsters (Joe Plascencia and Thomas Corkran) will be continually updating its Facebook page with new characters, videos and news, so stay tuned by liking its page at https://www.facebook.com/QuipstersTV
