Khan Academy Launches Pixar in a Box, a Behind-the-Scenes Look at Pixar Animation Studios’ Creative Process!

Khan Academy launches Pixar in a Box, a behind-the-scenes look at Pixar Animation Studios’ creative processFree online curriculum shows how Pixar filmmakers use science, technology, engineering, art and math to create movie magic 

“Our mission at Khan Academy is a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere,” said Sal Khan, Founder and CEO of the not-for-profit Khan Academy. “Sparking student interest in math and other academic fields is a key part of that, and we’re delighted to collaborate with Pixar to achieve this goal. Pixar in a Box gives students a new way to engage with key academic concepts and see how creative these concepts can be.”

“For years, we’ve heard from teachers at every grade level interested in creating animation-based curricula,” said Elyse Klaidman, Director, Pixar University and Archives.  “We’ve wanted to provide free online resources for them, and Pixar in a Box makes that dream a reality. We hope that it not only gives students a behind-the-scenes look at how our movies are made but also gets them excited about STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) concepts.”

Khan and Catmull officially unveiled Pixar in a Box at a special event yesterday evening on the Pixar campus in Emeryville, CA. After an introduction from Klaidman, local educators learned the story behind the project and then received a live demonstration of Pixar in a Box from two of its creators – Brit Cruise, Content Producer at Khan Academy, and Tony DeRose, Senior Scientist and Research Group Lead at Pixar. The evening concluded with a question-and-answer session moderated by Klaidman.

“Many students start to lose interest in academics in middle and high school, partly because they don’t see how academic concepts relate to things they care about,” said DeRose. “Pixar in a Box aims to address this disconnect by showing how Pixar filmmakers use these concepts for creative benefit in their everyday work.”

Starting today, students can access Pixar in a Box and learn:

  • How combinatorics are used to create crowds, like the swarm of robots in WALLŸ
  • How parabolas are used to model environments, like the forest in Brave.
  • How weighted averages are used to create characters, like Buzz Lightyear and Woody.
  • How linear and cubic interpolation are used to animate characters.
  • How trigonometry is used to create the worlds in which Pixar stories take place.
  • How simultaneous equations are used to paint all of Pixar’s images.

“These lessons are the first phase of the project,” said Cruise. “While the first year focuses on math, future Pixar in a Box lessons will explore science, computer science, arts, and humanities.”

All Pixar in a Box resources are available free of charge at PixarInABox.org. The site will be updated as additional lessons become available.

I’m going to Disney OTR Social Media Moms Celebration!

Disney-OTR-2014-going

I was surprised by an email from Disney, to one of the most amazing (if you’re a Disney fan) events … the Disney OTR Social Media Moms Celebration!

I kind of looked at it in shock for a few seconds, then quickly (and with very shaky hands) called my husband. He didn’t answer and I had to call him like 5 more times! When he finally answered he was super excited for me! He know how much I wanted to go.

Then the shock kinda wore off and i decided to double and triple check and make sure I didn’t misread the email. Yes! I really did receive an invite!

What is the Disney OTR Social Media Moms Celebration you ask?

Disney Social Media Moms Celebration On-the-Road is going coast to coast in June 2015, spreading tons of pixie dust along the way. From dynamic speakers and interactive sessions to behind-the-scenes info straight from Disney Parks, its no wonder that previous attendees have come from all over to experience the unique magic of Disney Social Media Moms Celebration On-the-Road.”

I’m looking forward to learning something new and meeting people with similar interests. And there are always surprises when Disney is involved!  Follow me on twitter or Instagram for more updates. Look for #DisneySMMC to check out everyone’s photos and updates.

Avengers Age of Ultron Review

With a few exceptions sequels are never as good as the first one and I’m sure if you watched the first installment of the Avengers you would agree that that was pretty hard to beat. Avengers: Age of Ultron was action packed, funny and engaging and it definitely lived up and exceeded my expectations.

If you haven’t watched any of the trailers leading up to this movie, here’s one to get your interested spiked up:

Avengers: Age of Ultron also shows us a very different side to both Hulk and Black Widow with a romantic interest developing between the two. Which by the way was I the only one that saw that coming?! I’m actually glad they took enough time on the subject and the idea that love can tame even the angriest of monsters is always amusing to me. Hey! maybe I’m just a sucker for the whole Beauty and the Beast plot twist 😉

Another part I loved was getting to see more of Hawkeye’s private life. Yes, he’s a badass with a bow and arrow and his aim is INSANE! But it was pretty cool for Mavel/Disney to humanize him and show us a completely different side of him (specially for those of us who thought he and Black Widow had something going on) We get to meet his wife and children who live in no other than a farmhouse in the middle of nowhere and exposes a softer side of this hunkwith a bow.

Oh! and the geeky girl in me rejoiced by the introduction of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch how cool are they?! Am I the only one that was always fascinated with the underdogs?!

And once again Stan Lee’s cameo was AMAZING as expected, don’t you just love him? How cool is he?

Overall I loved the movie, but again I’m a geeky girl. I loves the human aspects, the new characters and the usual fast paced action that keeps you at the edge of your seat. Even though the movie is a whole 2 hours long!

Make sure you like THE AVENGERS on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

Marvel’s AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON opens in theaters everywhere on May 1st!

New Cinderella Live Action Review

I first heard about the new live action Cinderella movie from the Christian Loubouitin ad. Honestly I was dumbfounded Cinderella has always been one of my favorite movies and although I was sure Disney would do it justice, I know we live in a completely different era than the one when the animated film came out. Also, a leap from animation into live action isn’t always smooth nor successful.

This week, I had the opportunity to see the live action version of Cinderella at an advanced press screening. I thought the re-telling of the classic fairy tale was done beautifully. I really appreciated the time spent on Ella’s background and the character development, specially the time spent getting to know her mother. The film did not shy away from the emotional turmoils in Cinderella’s childhood, and kept her mothers memory very much alive through her message to have courage and to be kind.

Lily James and Richard Madden are real life royalty, they are both immensely gorgeous and the dance sequence was magical and amazing. I was a bit wary about that specific scene since it’s so meaningful to the film but once again Disney has proven to they can make everything amazing!

Helena Bonham Carter is a beautiful and ever so clumsy fairy godmother and her rendition of Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo through the elegant orchestra score took me way back to my childhood, to a time when I though I was also a Disney princess. If you are curious about a bonus after the credits, there isn’t one; but I suggest hanging around for the credits to hear Helen Bonham Carter’s rendition of Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo which is also included on the soundtrack. Oh! and the new version of a Dream is a wish your heart makes is tear worthy. Perhaps I just have a strong bond to Cinderella 😉

Frozen Fever

I was super excited about the new short Frozen Fever! And let me tell you it did not disappoint. I am sure there will be a fair percentage of movie goers who are just headed out to see Cinderella for the new Frozen Fever short that is attached. It was super funny and in true Disney short fashion it delivered a lot more than expected. The new song, Making Today a Perfect Day, with Anna & Elsa was very cute and I’m sure will be a huge hit with little girls.

 

Disclamer: I was given free Press Passes to watch the film, I was not compensated to write the review or watch the movie. All opinions are my own.
