There are just a few more hours left on the Dragon's Lair movie pitch crowd funding on Indiegogo The crowd funding has already way passed it's goal, so if you want a lot of cool things for really cheap price as well as helping out Don Bluth bring Drangon's Lair to the big screen, than you better get over there now and contribute before the few hours are up.

For example if you just contribute $20, you will get
  1. The complete set of ten Don Bluth's TOONTALK magazines in digital format. Plus "Animation: One way to approach it" animation manual in digital format. A 39-page animation hand-out exclusively for Don Bluth animation Master Classes.
  2. An exclusive password-protected hyperlink to our studio blog. Plus, video updates on our progress as well as a "thank you" credit on our website.
  3. The Art of Storyboard and The Art of Animation Drawing digital books. These books are currently out-of-print but now you can have them both in digital format!
  4. 3 Video tutorials by Don Bluth on using perspective and how to draw Hands & Eyes as downloadable video.

So you get all of that for just $20.  I personally put in a lot more for the extra stuff, because I loved those Dragon's Lair games growing up, and I want to finally see it as a film. To help celebrate I uploaded a long 16 minute per-production animation of Dragons Lair 2 (see below).  It has lots of rough animation in it, which I love to see.

The Art of Penguins of Madagascar

With the busy Holiday season I was not able to go see the Penguins of Madagascar in theaters until this month.  Boy it blew me away at how funny it was, my family and I were laughing the whole way through it.  I wanted the art book right away too, and I wanted to share some of the artwork in it.  So here's another review of some of the awesome artwork you will see in the book The Art of Penguins of Madagascar
