We attended the JFFC 2014 last February 22-23 and it is held at Ateneo de Manila University. It was quite an experience actually because I’ve never attended anything like this before.

The first speaker would be Drei Alquiros and I think almost everyone understood what she said because she explained her topic in a way that we students can actually understand. Philip Cheang also said a lot of helpful things on the first day of the conference.

On the second day, we are going to have a workshop on two topics. The first session we had is all about Designing for Touch. I really had fun in this part because we have lots of activities and we get to mingle with other people attending to the said seminar.  The second topic is all about Making HTML 5 Games. A lot of us didn’t get to interact in this part because most doesn’t have any laptops with them. But if you’re really going to listen to his lecture, you’re still going to learn something 😉

Thank you JFFC for this experience! 😀

Several months ago, one of my anonymous Pixar Theory Interns (that’s a thing on a resume) came to me with a crazy proposition: Andy’s mom is Emily, Jessie’s previous owner.

I laughed. I then agreed.

For some time, I compiled all of the evidence and found some incredible support for this theory. For one thing, take a close look at Andy’s cowboy hat he frequently wears in the movies:

Here’s another close look:

Andy's Hat

As you can see, Andy’s hat is noticeably different from Woody’s. Why is this? Why wouldn’t Andy want to wear a hat that closely resembles the one worn by his favorite toy?

It’s no secret that Andy has a close connection with Woody. In Toy Story 2, his mom (who we only know as Ms. Davis) mentions that Woody is an old family toy.

Remember that Woody doesn’t even recall that…

This is an additional activity and we’re supposed to make an image and animate it.

Really cool huh?

But do you know how it is done?

Well…

it’s pretty hard to explain. As hard as the process of making this program.

But I did it!

Note this one best viewed in Google Chrome. It takes great skill to make it work in other browsers but I promise you it still works.

Check it heeeere!
