Check out this snow!

Disney’s movie, Frozen is coming to theaters soon. And I found this SIGGRAPH video that shows how they’ve created snow.

One of my favorite parts is at 1:27 which shows the parameters of the snow. These parameters change how the snow interacts with an object.
Pretty awesome stuff!

RYAN LARKIN – WALKING (1968)

by Ryan Larkin — 1968

An artist’s observation of the way people walk. Ryan Larkin employs a variety of techniques–line drawing, color wash, etc.–to catch and reproduce the motion of people afoot. The springing gait of youth, the mincing step of the high-heeled female, the doddering amble of the elderly–all are registered with humor and individuality, to the accompaniment of special sound.

Production : National Film Board of Canada (nfb.ca)

Surf the nfb.ca website, you can stream from a large archive of amazing films and animations, all produced by our lovely neighbors to the north.

Interesting to note that Bhakti showed me this last year and it was only today I realized it’s from the same group! The internet is smaller than we might expect people!
