The Blue Umbrella Making-Of Holiday Calendar - A virtual advent calendar with footage from the making of Pixar’s short, The Blue Umbrella.
Rebecca Sugar’s Subtle Cartoon Chaos - This is a great interview with Rebecca Sugar, the first woman ever in the 21-year run of the Cartoon Network to create and run her own show. The interview also features interesting discussion about women’s roles in animation over the years.
