i'm just a girl with a blog


Hello! My name is Carson and I'm an American teenage girl. I am naturally very curious, but since I never fell down a rabbit hole to have my own adventure, I'll have to be content with obsessing over movies, books, and TV shows. On this blog expect to find lots of Disney, Sherlock, Once Upon a Time, and Doctor Who. There also may be some Harry Potter, Hunger Games, superheros (I am in love with the Avengers), Star Wars, vloggers, other tv shows, or what ever I feel like, because after all it is my blog. If you follow me, leave me a message. I would love to get to know you.  I'll check out your blog as well.  I hope you enjoy this site, and have a magical day!

Favorite Barbie Soundtrack - Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper

Not gonna lie, this was one of my favorite movies as a kid and my sister and I made this dance/play to the songs and I was Erika and she was Annalise and the point if the story is that I still know every word to these songs



Do you like 2D animation?

Do you like Steampunk?

Do you like interesting, well written female character?

If you answered yes to any of the above then please take a moment to read about a really cool new project.

Hullabaloo is a steampunk adventure created by some of the great talent in the animation industry, including people behind the Disney Renaissance films like Lion King and The Little Mermaid.  It’s the story of Veronica Darling, a brilliant young scientist, and her friend Jules, trying to track down her missing father and stop a mysterious villainous, group by become a secret crusader and using her inventions for good.  Have I got you interested yet?  You can learn more here and here

Why should you care?

1.  All of the major animation studios have stopped producing traditional 2D animated features, in favor of 3D computer animation.  This means many talented people have been laid off and the technique that built the animation industry is in danger of dying out.  By supporting this project you can show studios there is still a market for 2D animation. 

2. This story is about two strong, interesting female characters that are both engineers.  By supporting this project you are encouraging better representation of female characters, and hopefully providing girls with role models in math, science, and engineering, a traditionally male dominated field.

3. By donating now, you can also get cool gifts, like digital copies, access to production notes, signed drawings, or an “Art of” book.

This post is one of my favorite things.  It honestly brings tears to my eyes.  To think that some people are so cruel, and people are in real life that cruel, to crush and cast aside people’s dreams like that, to leave people feeling completely unloved, this makes me so, so sad. And these stories, most Disney stories, and pretty much all of my favorite stories are about people who through sheer will and hope and perseverance overcome all the pessimism they face  It’s one think to overcome villains and other obstacles, but more difficult still to overcome the voice inside your head telling you that you can’t do it, to over come all the naysayers, to keep trying.  Whether your fighting for love, or family, or success, or justice, or just happiness never stop believing it can happen, because when you believe it can happen, it can happen. And it’s worth it.  Look at all the gifs on the right, how happy they are, so happy they can’t even remember the people who told them they couldn’t be that happy.  Always fight for your own hapiness.  


lipsredasroses asked: "I read one of the posts that said "computer animation wasn't prominent 10 years ago when Mulan came out." Mulan actually had its 15th Anniversary last year, however, computer animation or CGI has been around since the 1970s/80s. Disney did not start using computer animation until the Great Mouse Detective but computer animation has been prominent in Disney films since the late 80s. There was CGI in Mulan even if the characters themselves were hand drawn."

feministdisney:

ah, yeah. I think they more meant the way the characters are designed from a 3D perspective using computers, as opposed to the flatter hand-drawn style used for movies like Mulan… I’m not sure if there’s an easy name for that style? Maybe there is. But yes computers have been a part of animation for a while

Hey! I know all about this because I wrote a paper on it.
As you’ve pointed out computer technology existed and was being used to animate in the 1970s and 80s but this was very rudimentary. It was used more for special effects than pure story telling and you couldn’t make a movie just with computers.

In the 1990s, there were a few different ways computers could be used to make movies. In several movies such as Great Mouse Detective, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin. Disney used computers to animate the background for a scene (the clock tower, the ballroom, and escaping from the cave of wonders) the characters were still animated by hand. Another way computers were used was the CAPS project where computers replaced the cell and ink process or Xerox process. Again, the characters were drawn by hand. So in the 1990s when Mulan was made, computers were used to assist the production of movies, to make it cheaper and faster, but were still basically 2D hand drawn movies.

When people say a computer animated movie what they usually mean is a 3D computer animation. 3D CA is a movie completely made from the computer. It is very different from the processes described above and in fact, is more similar to puppet stop motion animation, except the puppets or models are created and moved within a computer.

The first computer animated full length movie was Toy Story released in 1995. Mulan was released in 1998. While Disney was using computers, it wasn’t really using Computer Animation until 2000 with Dinosaur.

I hope this helps :)



Avengers Opinion

So, I kinda hope we see some of the “sidekicks” like War Machine and Falcon and Sif in an Avengers movie. Obviously there are already a lot of characters and not enough time to focus on them, but it would make since if they showed up for some of the battles, right?
