Movies and video
New updates from Dawgtown, animated movie featuring sympathetic fighting dogs.
It’s an ambitious, traditionally hand-drawn animated drama about captive dogs fighting for freedom. It has voice acting by George Foreman, and the indie spirit of a Ralph Bakshi movie. The director was super cool about providing a great interview to this blog. Storyboard progress is just posted, and he reports “Getting close to half the film (40 min) complete.” The new scene shows Max, the hero, lost on the dangerous streets of New York City.
Here’s the next fursuit music video you were expecting. NOA NEAL – FULL MOON PARTY.
Call it a modest trend. Here’s a “sexy video full of crazy Cosplayers, playful cheerleaders and a band of exuberant dancers.” It’s from Noa Neal, a Dutch-born, Belgian pop singer since 2003. In 2009 she had a career boost from a talent show. Since 2012, she’s known for presenting kid’s content on Euro TV. In 2013 she moved to the US to write and record with a producer associated with Katy Perry, Carly Rae Jepsen & Miley Cyrus. Her new single was recorded in London and produced in Finland. It might not be an Ylvis-style novelty hit, (let’s hope fursuiters don’t have to hear another song yelled at them), but it’s fluffy, harmless fun.
