The Real Making of Frozen

Much like Tangled, the DVD/Blu Ray/Digital release of Frozen came with a dearth of extras that were actually interesting or relevant. I really didn't take to the "funny" musical Making of... spoof that was included with my iTunes purchase, probably because I am genuinely interested in how films, … [Read More...]

Rebecca Hahn Interview | A Creature Of Moonlight

I have a confession to make. When I first started reading Rebecca Hahn’s book A Creature Of Moonlight I got about 3 pages in and had to stop. I threw my Kindle onto the pillow in frustration.

“High Tide” Short Animated Film By Kristin Kemper

Kristin Kemper shared her student film "High Tide" on Vimeo and Tumbler yesterday and it is definitely worth a look (or ten). The animated film is full of wonder, mystery, seashells, reference books, seashores, mermaids and just about everything else I love. The character design and animation brings … [Read More...]

Soman Chainani Interview | The School For Good And Evil

As soon as I heard about The School For Good And Evil I knew I had to somehow interview the author Soman Chainani.
