The site is opened since two days nows, but better late than never : Spirit Source (english) is now officially opened!
That makes the third site in (almost) one week!! Yes, that's madness, I admit. At the same time, they were ready, so I didn't want to make any of you waiting...
I already know that Spirit Source and All Dogs Go To Heaven Source will be the two most popular sites here after Balto Source. Which is logical, these sites are made for attracting the current visitors while the others are there for "enlarging" the members base.
In any [...]
* UPDATED * See below!
The Princess And The Frog is now available widely (in the US!) and here's its first week end box office :
My analysis? Disappointing. VERY disappointing.
This is below the expectations, below any 3D animated film being released over the past years. UP made 3 times that, other lesser efforts such as Cloudy With a Chance of Meatball or Disney's A Christmas Carol made much better.
Enchanted, a film with similar aspects but limited target, made 35M$. Heck, even Curious George, a 2D animated film that no one talked about when it was released in 2006 and [...]
In case you didn't already know...
The Princess & The Frog is opening today in theaters, in the USA!
So if you live there, well...what are you waiting in front of your computer??? Get out and see it! Now! It's an order!
More seriously : for now the film has grossed $2,410,820 in only two theaters. (pre-release) which is an impressive amount (but was expected!) We should receive the "real" figures in a few days with its first wide-release week end.
Will it make an honest effort (10-20 M$) or become the highest-grossing 2D animated film of all time? (> 50 M$) We'll [...]
They're on fire! Yes, the Source websites are multiplying at light speed.
Today, I present you with a site dedicated to this film that, I'm pretty sure, everyone here already knows : All Dogs Go To Heaven, including information on the sequel, the series and the Christmas Carol.
This site has been one of the most requested during the lifetime of Balto Source, so I hope you'll be satisfied!
EDIT : Sorry about that, I'm very impolite. You can thank Silver Deni (graphics) and Mohammad891 (content/info) for all their work on the site!
Yes, there is a new Source site! Maybe not the one you expected (don't worry, the english version of Spirit Source is still on its way)
Nonetheless, this is an important one.
The main reason is simple : this upcoming film is Disney's comeback to traditional animation!
Let's remember : in 2003, Disney closed down their 2D animation department, deciding to stop making more "line drawn" animated films like their past glories from the 90's : The Lion King, Aladdin, Beauty & the Beast... That [...]
I have performed a lot of changes on the sites recently, in order to solve some trouble with webranking.
Especially, the forums URL have changed : but don't worry, if you bookmarked some pages, you will be redirected to the right page.
I have done some testing, but if you see experience some bugs, please report them!
Also, I have added some neat "Share" buttons on most site pages, so that you can now easily share your creations, the interesting articles you find, etc...on Facebook, Twitter and others![...]
