Volunteering at Cinemapolis

20 05 2009


Here at Moving Box Studios, we not only believe in creating independent media, but also in supporting our local community in Ithaca, NY.  Today a large group of the Moving Box team volunteered our time painting and cleaning the new Cinemapolis theatre.  We had a great time and highly recommend it.

They still need more volunteers before they’re grand reopening.

Behind the Scenes: Interns!

27 04 2009

Hello, world.

This is Steve, a current all-purpose animation intern at Moving Box Studios. My creative director Chris Davidson wants to give you all some insight into what us interns actually do (i.e. not watch cartoons all day), so here’s some insider info.

I had my hands on the pilot episode of Java, correcting colors and whatnot. Java refused to “pop” against the background in his drab duds. We can’t have our title character blending into the background, so I created a bunch of alternative palettes. I consulted with Chris on what the final color choice should be, and after picking it, I went to town in Adobe Flash changing each instance of Java to the new palette by Cmd + I’ing and Cmd + K’ing everything into submission. Repetitive? Eh, maybe, but it seriously helps develop an eye for color, attention to detail, and, well, using Flash in general. Java will be coming to your screen this summer… so I better hop to it.

That’s all for now. Cheers!
