Announcing Big Screen Animation
As the name suggests, the blog will focus mostly on feature animation, but expect to see shorts and other animation-related content as well. I hope to change things up with a modest redesign and insightful guest posts.
So why the change? There’s a number of reasons. For starters, I feel there’s a need for a fresh animation news and discussion site that’s accessible to a wide, non-industry audience.
Moreover, as animation takes a whole new place in the entertainment industry, there are many non-Pixar projects I’d like to cover. New studios are cropping up. I look forward to sharing the latest on the most interesting developments from across the world of animation.
Pixar will, of course, be at the forefront. It is, without a doubt, the greatest animation studio in the world.
Beginning Nov. 16, visitors to pixarblog.blogspot.com will be automatically redirected to the new address, bigscreenanimation.com. Individual posts from the past four years will still be available and will redirect to their new URLs. Twitter username will change accordingly.
I’ll be away from the blog for the next week starting Sunday, but will be checking (and responding to) comments. Please sound off below.
