The working title for the next Wallace & Gromit feature is apparently "The Curse of the Were-Rabbit". ^_^ But not due until Sep 30 2005.. can anyone find any stills of the production yet?

It had to happen: the USB pendrive Swiss Army knife.

New G6 prototype spotted.

Sometimes, high hopes for technology in education are indeed met: "Since the start of the laptop program, their scores in reading, writing and math have improved enough to remove Pembroke from Maine's list of underperforming schools. Afterschool detentions have almost become obsolete. 'The laptops are integrated in the classroom all day long, and the students have become totally self-directed, independent learners.' Smith points out. 'There's a community and family atmosphere. There is peer learning going on. These were kids without confidence who wouldn't have stood up to make a presentation. Now, they're asking to stand up.'" The article does have its cautionary side, contrasting Maine's program with Michigan's, held up as somewhat half-baked, with little follow-through as to what the program should really strive to achieve, how, and paid by whom. Nonetheless, it's an encouraging sign that, given good tools, schools and students which might otherwise lag are realising much more of their potential.
I've found only this one picture. I'd imagine production stills leaking from the set of a claymation feature would be pretty difficult. Not to mention, I'm sure the makers wouldn't be that keen on releasing too many photos of a project they've dedicated 5 years on; they'd wait 'till the last possible moment to put out trailers and such.
Well, it's so difficult to tell - some filmmakers seem to positively revel in teasing the audience. Witness the trailer for The Polar Express, released a couple months ago, with the feature following.. in December. Might be quite a good one, though, pushing the CG frontiers again, and being based on a children's book, might have some merit to the storyline. ^_^

I'm still undecided as to whether Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow will live up to its enjoyably retro premise - the trailer again looks promising, but might yet be shielding ham-laden acting and a script that wouldn't pass muster in an English class.

Will we get to see a nifty transformation sequence, I wonder? I'm guessing perhaps not.. something tells me they might be aiming more for a "classic" not-actually-horror feel. But there should be bunnies, so it can't be all bad. ^_^

No links, as I must scamper. ^_^
