Disney Animated Movie Timeline

Disney fan Aish has put together an infographic mapping most of the Disney animated movies in a chronological timeline based on the order of historical setting. The graphic sorts almost 50 films into 47 time periods. Not all of the Disney animation catalog is included, specifically the package films. Aish notes:

Some films, eg The Lion King, are impossible to pin down exactly and some, like Aladdin and Treasure Planet, are anachronistic, so these are estimations. A few have been split into 2 if there is more than one time period in the movie, and sequels have been put together.)

Check out the Disney Animated Movie Timeline in full, after the jump.

Following the viral hit of the short film Portal: No Escape, Universal Pictures and screenwriter-turned-producer Chris Morgan (Wanted, Fast Five, 47 Ronin) quickly acquired Dan Trachtenberg‘s  time travel action heist film Crime of the Century. Trachtenberg has been actively developing the idea into a movie since the 2011 acquisition with screenwriter Daniel Kunka (12 Rounds), while trying to get a Y: The Last Man movie adaptation off the ground at New Line and finally getting a greenlight with the mysterious Bad Robot film Valencia.

Now it seems like the heat is back on at Universal to get Crime of the Century into production, and the studio has hired screenwriter Gary Dauberman, who recently wrote The Conjuring spin-off Annabelle for Warner Bros. Find out more about the project and the new Crime of the Century writer, after the jump.

Short Film: Welcome to Colon, Magic Capital of the World

Welcome to Colon, Magic Capital of the World
One of my interests outside of film has always been magic, an art which I think goes hand in hand with the mastery of storytelling and incorporation of visual effects in films. In the past years there have been several great magic documentaries: Make Believe (which is like Spellbound but about the teenage world magic championships, from the producers of King of Kong), The Magic Life (focused on the struggles of being a magician), and Magic Camp (which was about Tannen’s Magic Camp, the oldest and most prestigious training camp for young magicians).

I’m magnetically attracted to anything about magic or magicians. Today I discovered a 15-minute short film titled Welcome to Colon, Magic Capital of the World, which tells the story of Abbott’s Magic Get Together, an annual gathering of several hundred magicians from all over the world who convene for a week of shows and lectures. The gathering has been going on for the past 80 years, in the tiny town of Colon Michigan which proudly bills itself as “The Magic Capital of the World.” Watch the Welcome to Colon, Magic Capital of the World short film embedded after the jump. You might even see some familiar faces from those other previously mentioned magic documentaries.
