WN 17: Kubo and the Two Strings wins the BAFTA


Kubo and the Two Strings
[Focus Features]

Welcome to the Weekly News… well, kinda. To be honest, there was very little animation news to report on this week, down to the point where theres only one noteworthy story. That one would be Kubo and the Two String’s win at the BAFTA Awards.

While we all patiently wait for the Academy Awards, it’s Britain’s turn to deliver film awards. On February 12, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA for short) presented the 70th British Academy Film Awards in Royal Albert Hall of London. [...]

[Image by Figa]

It’s that day of the year where a bit of love and kindness is shared around the world. On Animation Source, especially on the French side, Valentines Day is commonly celebrated with fan pairings being created in drawings and images. For the first time, the English side joined in with the French side for the first time in a Valentines project like this, and we have a lot of impressive entries to get through.

I have loosely adapted this article from Nakou’s French-side article. You should also give that a look as it has many [...]

Animation Source goes MOBILE!


Ten years ago, while riding a train, I had an idea : why not making a WAP version of Balto Source? It would be very nice to see the latest fanarts whenever, wherever!

Mobile Animation Source

Even though this never happened, I'm glad to announce Animation Source is now mobile friendly!

It's exactly the same site, with all the same functionalities (thanks to responsive design), just with things resized and moved so it's more practical.

Of course it's not perfect yet, I'm still fixing things but it's already much easier to browse the site on a phone or tablet!

On a side note, I've also made quite a lot [...]

Riding Free News




New video with more information on the "Spirit: Riding Free" series.



Apparently, the buckskin character featured is not in fact Spirit himself, but a mustang of the same name (this was done for copyright reasons).


There are many more models, characters from the series. Interestingly, (alongside the fact that the three main horse characters are a buckskin, paint and palomino - like Spirit, Rain and Esperanza) some of these other characters seem to resemble (in basic design) characters from the book series [...]
