The festival, with a unique name was started by Shawn Wickens, Starr Kendall and Michael McFarland as a celebration of art for the creation of the art. The name was so decided to remove the burden of filmmakers to be perfect their art.

It is presented as an extension of the Bad Theatre Fest, the Bad Film Fest seeks work from filmmakers with various experience and skill levels. The UK Telegraph called the festival “a liberating experience … there’s something inherently joyous about the randomness of the festival’s assortment of shows.”Video-Editing-Course

” Bad Film Fest Co-Founder Starr Kendall says . “”It’s not that we have low standards,” he adds, We have different standards. We want to curate the most diverse festival possible. Part of the motivation behind starting a festival openly searching for bad short films is to make a venue available to people who are prevented from showing their work by the fear of how it will be received by the audience. Plus it’s fun to watch a bunch of bad films in a crowded theatre.”

Around the world, perhaps no animation house is more respected, well-known and more iconic than that of the Walt Disney Company. Since it was founded in 1923, Disney has come closest to embodying the power and myth of animation itself, and not just for the stories that were being animated. The studio, founded as the “House of Mouse,” has certainly grown in size and scope, encompassing parks, studios, subsidiary companies and countless copyrights.
What does the Disney studio stand for in terms of its animation? That question has propelled compliments and criticisms of the various animated films based on the economics of the period, the age of the parents as opposed to the children (especially parents who grew up on a prior generation of Disney films), and the popular trends of the time. Needless to say, popular consensus of Disney varies through generations.M.A. in Multimedia Animation

How well does Disney fare today? Rather well. A lion’s share of the credit comes from the popular up-swing in content that Disney started releasing in 2009. Popular films, such as “Up,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Toy Story 3,” and “Tangled,” were released between 2009 and 2010. But much of Disney’s recent popularity and praise recently can be said to have begun in 2012.

The sucessful release of Frozen has incited a cry that Disney might be undergoing a “Second Renaissance,” a term referencing the popularity Disney once received after the release of “The Little Mermaid.” Disney’s decision to circumvent many tropes they themselves created for the animated story/princess genre have lead to “Frozen” being called one of the company’s most progressive films of the last generation.

At Studio Ghibli, the animation house created by Hayao Miyazaki, there should also be cause for both praise and reflection. Under the direction of revered animator Hayao Miyazaki, Studio Ghibli has released such amazing works of art as “My Neighboor Totoro,” “Grave of the Fireflies,” “Spirited Away” and many others. Miyazaki-sama’s final film as chief guide of Studio Ghibli, “The Wind Rises,” has been recently hailed his most profound and close to the heart.
