Anastasia’s Blue Dress Appreciation Post
Was there some sort of special animation for this movie because it has never looked quite like other animation.
It was almost entirely rotoscoped, if that’s what you mean? That means it was drawn on top of live action film, which is how they got the realistic subtleties.
Whoa, that’s so cool. Wow.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is rotoscoping done fantastically right.
Because all you really need to do is find some cheap animation produced by lesser-to-completely-unknown studios to see how horribly disturbing rotoscoping is when the artist cannot animate very well; if the frame rate is too slow? It looks jerky, choppy, and repulsively unnatural. It leaps right into the uncanny valley and sets up house there.

How many years before I can vote for this child?
How much longer?!
We watched one of his videos in my english class last year, my teacher told us he has some sort of illness and is not expected to live full life, so he makes these videos because he wants to impact the world while he can…
What he suffers from is OI, a brittle bone disease that breaks down connective tissue. This was the same disease suffered by Samuel L. Jackson’s character, Mr. Glass in the movie Unbreakable. While the disease is painful, it will not necessarily prevent “Kid President” from reaching adulthood. It does however, inspire him to continue to be an awesome kid and to give great advice like this.
