James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.
From the film’s IndieGo page:
Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.
In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

How do you even…. ?
This is the type of stage pageantry that people pay hundreds to see. Imagine how long the costume designer took intricately put into making those dresses the people behind the scene are the true heroes of theater
The one on the right is a true work of art
AH YES THEATRE
Okay. One correction: Imagine how long it took the costume designer to DESIGN those dresses and imagine how long it took the costumers in the costume shop to build and adorn those dresses. Costumes at this level are not made by the designer. The designer designs the dress and makes sure the dress is built to specification. The costumers (First hands, cutters, drapers, stitchers, etc) actually make the dress. (Also kudos to wig masters for being involved in this and wardrobe for setting it up and cleaning it during the runs).
But yes, oh my god this dress is amazing. Good on all the costumers involved in these dresses.

HEY TUMBLR, LET’S PLAY A GAME
To play this game, go to MapCrunch, select “hide location”, make sure you have all countries unselected, and click go. What this will do is drop you in a random part of the world. It’s as if you woke up on the side of a road in an unfamiliar country. The goal of the game is to find your way to an airport so you can return home.
Bonus Hard Mode: No using outside sources, and that includes using google maps to figure out your location from signs or landmarks
…I had plans today but now.
THE AIRPORT GAME IS BACK.

LAST TIME I PLAYED IT DUMPED ME IN THE MOUNTAINS OF NORWAY

Quit smiling, you’re suppose to be professional.
Being friends with me consists of me sending you bad jokes at 2:47 in the morning

My mind is still full of so much, to quote Elphaba, “Did that really just happen?” It was a three week gig, but it felt like three days. I ended up getting two chorus girls - Rebecca Kritzer and Shayla Beck - and two swings - Marissa Lupp and Brenda Hamilton - along…
