Frozen screenplay Jennifer Lee ScriptNotes v2As a father with two young kids, I see almost every single animated movie that hits theatres. Thankfully, I skipped out on The Smurfs 2. So when I saw Frozen with my kids on Saturday afternoon of opening weekend in a packed theatre, I was thoroughly in awe. Somehow, Disney had managed to publicize a movie for months and never reveal it was a musical. It’s a really good musical, too, taking story risks not typically seen in Disney animated films. Now as screenwriters, we get an excellent opportunity to hear writer and co-director Jennifer Lee break down the entire creative process and screenplay of Frozen on the latest episode of ScriptNotes.

All is Lost screenplayToday, we have two very different scripts. One is only 31 pages long, featuring one man adrift at sea, using all of his resourcefulness to stay alive, although his outcome looks bleak. The other script runs 126 pages, featuring a man who can’t stop talking about his philosophies and potential tall tales, convincing a boy and his friend to help this man elude bounty hunters to reunite with his love.

despicable me 2 the croods screenplays for your considerationAnimation is a special breed of film, including screenwriting for animated films. Most animated films are developed in-house, and if writers are hired from outside, they are typically hired to fill an open writing assignment for a story that the studio has already developed. Nevertheless, the screenplay for an animated film is extremely important as every visual and audio element of the story has to be created essentially from nothing. To give us a better understanding how screenplays for animated films translate to the screen, we have screenplays from two of the most successful animated films of 2013: Despicable Me 2 and The Croods.

The Blender Foundation is constantly pushing the boundaries of availability, openness, and access to the raw materials it uses to create its ‘proof-of-Blender’ animated shorts. This type of access is usually more associated with open source software than filmmaking, but especially since the Project Mango live-action CGI/VFX-heavy  Tears of Steel was realized, that distinction has become increasingly blurred. Now filmmakers, animators, or compositors looking to cut their teeth on professional-grade material have access to the entirety of Tears of Steel‘s footage, in 4k OpenEXR (in the ACES color space), courtesy Xiph.org. In the meantime, the Foundation has also made available a number of resources concerning their post-production pipeline, which allowed them to transcode 4K Sony F65 footage to those Linux-workable OpenEXR frames. Check below for more details. More »

In the midst of some tension and even some quite literal (and legal) contention, Sony’s RED/Alexa-aimed F55 and its less feature-rich sibling the F5 are in-stock at B&H and shipping out order to order. We’ve previously mentioned the comprehensive firmware update timeline released by Sony for the F5/F55 family, which also sees eldest little brother the FS700 rejuvenated with RAW support using Sony’s R5 recorder in July. Meanwhile, Sony is urging F5/F55 owners to update their cameras to firmware release 1.03, a previously unscheduled update which corrects a “black edge on highlights issue” in S-Log2 or HyperGamma modes.
