Ladies'n'Gentlemen...Here comes the teaser for their next journey.
UP - May 29th, 2009
Tell you what.....
the grumpy old man Carl Fredricksen is so familiar to me.
this movie keeps reminding me of one adventurer who departed his journey from the Lake Biwa in Japan aboard a balloon ship of his own "The Fantasy" towards America -- a.k.a The Balloon Man (The Fusen Ojisan in Japanese).
According to Wikipedia Japan, in Nov. 23th, 1992, this balloon man Yoshikazu Suzuki rode into the ship The Fantasy, which 3 of 6-meter balloons & 20 of 3-meter ones with full of Helium gas are installed to the wooden (Japanese cypress) gondola. Some Japanese broadcasting press stick with him for a few months, but after, nobody knows where he went, landed, and how he is now. He used to work at YAMAHA music as a piano tuner before the journey, and ran a variety of businesses, restaurants, pubs, Mah-jong bar etc. But neither of them went well & had a lot of debt. This is said to be one reason of his adventure to show in public to earn some money from it. But more reasons are being told too...
for the trivial story, Japanese actress Fumiko is this balloon man's third daughter.

This is some tool we animators ever looked forward. With this you can play back & forth frame by frame, and yes, can draw onto the clip directly.
I haven't checked out yet, but it says there're more nice features in it. Very helpful for our discussion & critique. I'll vote for adding this, the lab techs!
