The Legend of Korra: Game Release Date and New Mode, Plus What to Expect in Book 4 - IGN

Four cool videos over at IGN:

1) Interview with Robert Conkey, the producer from Activision on the upcoming Korra video game, which is to be released on October 21st!

2) A bunch of gameplay footage of the Pro-bending mode in the game, with Rob explaining everything in voice over. Dude… I can’t tell you how cool it is to see this sport we created in all of its chaos and fury––without us having to draw it. They even have the tiebreaker face-offs!

3) Interview with Mike and me about the ending of Book 3, the video game, and some tiny tidbits about where Book 4 is headed (TINY ones). I was really sleepy.

4) David Faustino (Mako) and Janet Varney (Korra) talk about love.

Thanks to the fantastic folks at IGN for having us!

Korra Book 3 finale is online right now!   These are some backgrounds from this season and some comps from the finale.  I did the paint. layout was most likely either Angela Sung or William Niu.

Sweet, Fred’s on Tumblr now! I’m putting the finishing touches on the Book 3 Dark Horse art book right this moment, which includes most of Fred’s incredible paintings above, and many more from him and our other magnificent painters.

Another GIF from the Korra season 3 finale. 
More beautiful animation- I love how she twists as she takes off that rock pillars’ top. 
There were some insane  awesome shots in both episodes and great choreography for the action sequences.

This whole exterior action sequence between Korra and Zaheer is co-executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos’ storyboarding/fight choreography masterpiece, especially the 20-plus-second continuous flying shot. It was a herculean undertaking, and he had some help cleaning up a few of the scenes by Owen Sullivan (on this one) and Shaun O’Neil. If you didn’t already know it, Joaquim is a force of nature when it comes to action animation!

Korra book 3 finale.
I think I forgot how to breathe a few times. Studio Mir did some absolutely awesome, gorgeous work. Thank you whole Korra crew!!!

I like this GIF as the sequel to my last post. I also love how buff Korra looks in that incredible animation. THAT is how she is supposed to look in every shot.
Thank you, Johane! I would also like to give a huge thanks to the Korra crews at Nick in Burbank, and in Seoul at Studio Mir and Studio Reve for a stellar season and finale. And thank you to the fans! Thanks for sticking with this show after the bumpy ride in Book 2, and the hide-and-seek network shenanigans this summer. Keep cursing the Bryke for making you feel the feels and smell the real poop. We’ll be back with Book 4 as soon as possible. Hopefully it won’t be released only on smartwatches or some other inane platform.
Love, Bryan
P.S. My umbrella term “in Burbank” failed to cover all the amazing crew members in greater LA, particularly Jeremy Zuckerman and his epic score, Benjamin Wynn for his sound design maelstrom, Aran Tanchum and Vinny Quisetti for their top-notch foley work, all of our martial arts consultants, and many others in our post production process around town. It takes a village!

Nerdist Writers Panel

michaeldantedimartino:

Bryan and I were guests on the Nerdist Writer’s Panel podcast with Ben Blacker. We talked about the creation of the show, the move to digital, and even about the Movie That Shall Not Be Named. Ben does a great job with the podcast and has had some big names on in the past, like Matthew Weiner, Damon Lindelof, and Vince Gilligan, so I was honored to be one of his guests! 

UPDATE: Here’s another link to the Nerdist website where you can hear it directly.

Hey, guys! This was the last episode I directed in Book 3, which is probably for the best because it was freaking nuts and my crew were all pretty exhausted by the end of it. Go watch it! Feel your feels! Tell me what you think!

Here are the intro slides I made for our SDCC Korra panelists. I had a very narrow slice of time in which to make them, but had a ton of fun in doing so.

My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.

To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…

Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.

"

— My only statement. My brothers’ are also online. Thank you for all your kindness, and goodbye for awhile guys. xo (via zeldawilliams)

A beautiful letter from Zelda Williams. Thinking about you and your family, Zelda. Love to you all.

Thanks for sharing your gifts and taking risks, Robin. Mork delighted me as a kid, and Awakenings and Good Will Hunting moved me to tears as a young man. 

My heart goes out to Robin’s family and his daughter, Zelda, a brilliant and talented cast member on Korra, in the wake of their immense loss today.
