Disney Haunted Mansion Halloween Audio Treat

Doombuggies, an unofficial fan site devoted to Disneyland's Haunted Mansion ride, will premier a new audio production that tells the story of how the Haunted Mansion got haunted. The file will be available on on Halloween day! That's October 31st in case you didn't know.

The mythic, haunting history of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion will finally be told by voice talent Kat Cressida, the artist whose performance as the gothic "Black Widow Bride" was added in early 2006 to the Disneyland version of the Haunted Mansion attraction as part of park-wide enhancements made to the attractions during Disneyland's 50th anniversary festivities.

Visit Doombuggies site to get the audio.

Single-Handed Feature Animation!

Romeo & Juliet: Sealed with a Kiss is a 77-minute feature animation by former Disney animator, Phil Nebbilink. He spent 4 1/2 years animating the entire film in Flash. It is the story of two star crossed seals from warring families that fall in love against the wishes of their parents.

This is where it's at folks. When a guy can animate an entire feature alone using readily available software and his own drawing and storytelling talents, well then you've simply got the future of 2D animation right in front of you.

Visit the film's web site and see a trailer
