In the ’80s, when you wanted big hair you whipped out the Aqua Net. But it wasn’t so easy for animators. The Little Mermaid‘s Princess Ariel was meant to sport curls, but the technology just wasn’t there in 1989—rendering that kind of bounce and frizz, cel after hand-drawn cel, was all but impossible 다운로드. Now, though, animated big hair is finally on the big screen in Disney/Pixar’s Brave.
The movie centers on Merida, a feisty Scottish princess on a quest to save her kingdom from a curse 다운로드. To illustrate her fiery spirit, filmmakers wanted Merida’s locks to spring off the screen—”Curly hair almost defies gravity,” simulation supervisor Claudia Chung says—but Pixar’s old CG hair simulator (used in 2001′s Monsters, Inc.) wasn’t up to the task 델타포스 다운로드.
So in 2009 Chung’s team designed a new simulator named Taz, after the wild Looney Tunes character. It forms individual coils around computer-generated cylinders of varying lengths and diameters 컴퓨터 게임 다운로드. The resulting locks stretch out when Merida runs but snap back into place as soon as she stops. Each strand is also strung through with a flexible “core curve,” like the string of a beaded necklace, that lets the coils bounce and brush against one another without unwinding 카카오톡 맥용 다운로드.
The full story – Pixar Reinvents Big Hair for Brave
Dear Pixar: You had me at her hair…
With a resplendent mane of fiery red curls, Merinda, the hero of Pixar’s latest animated feature “Brave” is truly the hallmark of a princess whose time has come 다운로드. And not just because the animation of her volume of hair required a technological breakthrough, which it did.
Six years in the making, Merinda is the first female protagonist to join Pixar’s all-male cast of leading heroes, breaking the mold of the damsel-in-distress princess archetype that punctuates virtually all films produced by Pixar’s predecessor, Disney 다운로드.
Associate producer Mary Alice Drumm describes “Brave” as a movie about redefining expectations for female protagonists:
“I think when people think about a girl as a hero, they think less strong, less brave sharepoint designer 2007. But Merida is brave like her father and brave like her mother. She’s a very relatable person, and I think people are going to have some interesting things to talk about after they see the movie.” ~SFGate
Producer Katherine Sarafian adds:
“There’s the bravery of adventure, with sword fights and chases and all that,” she says 다운로드. “Then there’s the bravery of being seen for who you are. If you see yourself in a certain way and the rest of the world sees you in another way, that’s a struggle 다운로드. It’s brave to look at who you are and speak your truth and find your way in the world.” ~SFGate
Brave opens June 22, and although its leading lass is garnering attention for her gender, Sarafian says the film is still a Pixar movie, with “big action, big heart, big humor, big adventure.”

Pixar’s “Toy Story 3” is the highest-grossing movie of all time in Mexico, where the animated adventure tale collected $59 million at the box office in 2010 포레이저 다운로드.
The follow-up from “Toy Story 3” director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson is also likely to have strong appeal with Mexican audiences — and to boast more authentically Latino characters than a Spanish-speaking Buzz Lightyear doll 다운로드.
The duo’s next movie is a still-untitled project about Día de los Muertos, the Mexican holiday of the dead, which Disney and Pixar first announced at CinemaCon last month 다운로드.
On the Day of the Dead, which has its roots in indigenous Aztec culture, families in Mexico and many Latin American countries pay tribute to deceased loved ones by creating graveside altars with treats like candy and bottles of Coca-Cola, and donning elaborate skull masks and costumes for processionals 다운로드.
“This is a very different view of death than the American one,” said Unkrich. “It’s not spooky. It’s celebratory.”

This original pitch tape, made by Jim Henson to sell The Muppet Show to CBS 다운로드.
Leo, dressed in a suit and tie, announces that Jim Henson and CBS executive George Schlatter have merged into one being, to bring to television: “The Muppet Show 윈도우 10 pe iso 다운로드! A show that will be loved and adored by Nielsen families all over the country!”
Leo insists that the show will make them rich and famous adobe flash cs4 다운로드. As his speech continues, he becomes increasingly excited and crazed (a motif previously used in “Sell! Sell! Sell!”). He practically explodes in a burst of patriotism and enthusiasm 다운로드.
