It's great that Disney is using this technology, but it's not really groundbreaking in 2013 given that James Cameron was using a virtual camera setup in a mo-cap volume in 2005 through 2009 to choose shots for Avatar.By:Geoff (not verified)
So when you say "paradigm-changing", you mean "Copying NewTek LightWave" right?
Because this looks like a cheap (while probably more expensive) version of LightWave's virtual camera system.
Sure, this is a big paradigm shift. But Disney just copied NewTek.

PLEASE, the powers-that-be, keep this show alive! I only discovered it last year and can't get enough of it. I don't want to loose it now. There are no laws that regulate the term of a series. Especially one as well written and well acted as this one. Always you see Merlin as an older sorcerer. This younger perspective is refreshing and leaves a lot of growing up room to continue for many more episodes. Please give in to your fans and continue to entertain us!!By:USYaya (not verified)
Inthe interest of historical accuracy, Sony Pictures Imageworks pioneered a very similar virtual camera system in 2006 for the animated film Surf's Up. This allowed for a handheld, documentary feel to the movie.

Just want to make sure all paradigm shifters are recognized.By:

Amon from legend of korraBy:Anonymous (not verified)
I think the movie was great. Its not making as much money as other dreamworks or pixar movies, but as a movie it was wonderful. There have been so many good movies that didn't do well in box office, but went on to win oscar. Its just unfortunate for dreamworks is all i can say. Animation was great, visuals were great, probably the pace of the movie could have paused at times. Never the less its the best animated movie I saw this year.By:elan (not verified)
this is too simplistic an article...
how about something sensible like how to write a deal memo. Most artists need to set the parameters with their client even before the job begins...By:Anonymous (not verified)

So you "put an artist on a project" and expect them to be in direct contact with the client about schedule and deliverables?
That's a producer's job, not an independent contractor's. If you're producing the project it's YOUR responsibility to make sure all the involved parties have the proper information. It's YOUR job to traffic what the artist creates.By:Rocky (not verified)
It's amazing how Spongebob is stil going strong.. and of course the ratings are high.. Thanks for uploading this because other articles won't provide updated informationBy:Justin Terrell (not verified)
uhh this article starts off wrong:
NEVER, NEVER, EVER Deliver ON TIME OR EARLY.. Always deliver LATE.. from the very get go(its all about conditioning).. during production tell a client you will have the first proofs in an hour.. and then wait a day to deliver.
why deliver late? because clients never pay full for their projects anymore or sometime will try not to pay at all.. so not worth your time to kill yourself on it.
THE KEY IS CONDITIONING... if you condition them that they will receive stages of the project late and later then by the time the project is due.. you can be out drinking with friends and they will not expect it on due date...
The best thing you can do is to condition clients to not be upset that work will always be late... and trhe best is to let them really get it in their mind.. by always setting up delivery on friday and then party on the weeekend work the following monday and tuesday and send them it on the Wensday AFTER the friday you told them they would get it.By:JoeJ (not verified)
Anonymous member - Well said Ed Hook. Personally a great fan of watching the film (visually), its familiarities of characters and concepts, but most of all it's outstanding appearance. BUT! Disney will have clearly done this to make marketing advancements into Asia; as they have just handed in the original character's emancipation; so they smuggled them over to the Disney family.By:Anonymous (not verified)
