Tangled is a 2010 American 3D computer-animated musical adventure film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. Loosely based on the German fairy tale “Rapunzel” in the collection of folk tales published by the Brothers Grimm.  Even though I dislike this movie due to its sort of anti-feministic approach (Rapunzel being a terrible role model, abduction, falling in love with dishonest person…..I can go on), I must say this movie is a ‘piece of art’. Rapunzel’s hair isn’t the only visual that got the star treatment in “Tangled.” As Disney’s first computer-generated fairy-tale, the film had to look and feel just right. To do that, the digital artists took full advantage of everything CGI had to offer: dynamic lighting, flexible cinematography and — obviously – depth, rendering to give it that hazy, almost oil painting-like quality that makes the film really “pop” onscreen.

Frozen

When the animated film “Frozen” was released last year, no one expected it to become a worldwide juggernaut. “Frozen,” which earned more than $1.2 billion at the box office, is not only the first “princess” movie to make the list of top 10 grossing animated films, even more astonishingly, it is also the No. 1 animated film of all time. Little girls have long been drawn to princesses. My twins were born, the same year the movie was released (2013) and have literally grown up watching the movie. My twins now almost 5, enjoy re-enacting the scene when it comes on and that they never change characters; one twin always plays Elsa, and the other plays Anna. From their dramatic positions on the floor to their giggling while they run around, the twins are spot-on. Hence this summer I wanted to give them a little surprise by making these Elsa-Anna crochet wigs made of beautiful yarn. Continue reading
