Came across this very cute short film called "Dirty Paws" that was put online a few months ago, it's the thesis film of a student (Karina Farek) who attends SVA (School of Visual Arts) animation. Here's a quick synopsis: All relationships have issues. Who does the dishes, which in-laws to spend the holidays with. But having a boyfriend who happens to be a werewolf can make life interesting at times. Their a normal couple doing normal things like cuddling, making each other breakfast, and being there for each other specially during a full moon.
The animation is cool and the story is very sweet, I love that there is more same sex couples being represented in animation.
During my lunch break I was finally able to watch the premiere episode of season two of Star Wars Rebels. If you have no idea what Star Wars Rebels is.. It's an animated series that fills the gap between the events of "Episode III" and "Episode IV." Imperial forces occupy a remote planet and are ruling -- and ruining -- its inhabitants' lives with an iron fist. A clever, disparate crew aboard the starship Ghost takes a stand against the Empire, facing new villains and colorful adversaries. The rebels on the Ghost include leader Kanan, ace pilot Hera, feisty heroine Sabine, tough guy Zeb and 14-year-old con artist Ezra.
After being smuggled offworld by Lando to escape the Empire, the demoralized crew meet up with Ahsoka's rebel cell, but Vader pursues them and proceeds to wipe out most of the rebel ships, discovering Ahsoka in the process - where Ahsoka is horrified to learn that Vader is actually her old Jedi master, Anakin Skywalker. Ahsoka joins the Ghost crew as they vow to join the wider fight against the Empire, while Vader reports Ahsoka's existence to Emperor Palpatine. The Emperor issues Vader new orders; dispatch another Inquisitor to hunt the crew of the Ghost, Ahsoka included, and capture them.
There was so much awesome in this episode. They are opening this series into a much larger world. Season one established these characters but it was never as grand as The Clone Wars. But if they continue doing what they are doing this is going to be one heck of a series. My favorite part was when Ahsoka and Vader felt each other's presence causing Ahsoka to pass out. They are aware of each other and everyone knows there will have to be some sort of battle between the master and apprentice and when it happens it's going to be EPIC!!! This episode was just a sneak preview as the rest of the season doesn't started until October. I can't wait!!!
