Introducing Daily Debate!

Share on Pinterest

Here at Rotoscopers.com, we have a very engaged and passionate audience. Nearly every post has a flood of insightful comments, which leads to some great discussion. We want to keep this tradition of meaningful conversation alive by introducing a new mini article series called the Rotoscopers Daily Debate.

What is Daily Debate?

Daily Debate is a short-form article series that poses one simple question and allows the readers to lead the discussion. Every few days, we will post a new article that tees off that day’s subject and question, then will open up the discussion to the readers to fire away with their responses. We encourage comments anywhere, but suspect that most of the discussion will likely occur on our Facebook page and in the comments section of that day’s Daily Debate article.

This series is inspired by a Zelda Informer’s Daily Debate series, which has led to some great conversations over there. If you’re a Zelda fanatic, definitely check out Zelda Informer!

Examples

We’ve already tested out a few Daily Debate topics on our Facebook page. Check out some of the Daily Debate we’ve covered already:

Future Topics: we need your help!

In order to make the Daily Debate a success, we need questions from readers like you. So let us know in the comments below which questions you would like to see for future editions of the Rotoscopers Daily Debate!

  • – What animated movie/TV show would actually benefit from being remade?
    – What animated movie should NEVER get a prequel/sequel?
    – What animated movie has the biggest plot hole?

    • – What non-Disney animated movie feels the most like Disney would have made it?

    • Manuel Orozco

      Well a TV show would actually benefit would be Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. Even though I’ve not seen all the episodes and had a love-hate relationship with the show, it had so much potential for some fun creative entertainment worth 30 minutes of time. What I would do is keep Bloo as equally likable as he started out as much as possible. What also can be more explored is the show’s themes of imagination, friendship, ups and downs of childhood, abandonment, bullying and what it’s like to be made up. The other imaginary residents at Foster’s should be given beta storylines to shine between the main story with the main quintet. All that while maintaining the original show’s quirky sense of character, imaginative quality and family friendly appeal.

    • Manuel Orozco

      By the way, I actually watched 64 out of the 79 episodes of Foster’s in their entirely.

    Who is your favorite Pixar sidekick and why?
    What is your favorite Don Bluth movie?
    What is the funniest Disney moment ever?

  • Dante Panora

    What was (or is) the best decade for Animation?
    Are you completely opposed to live-action adaptations of original animated works?
    What is the best foreign animated tv show/movie not from Japan?

  • Have one question for now. Do you think traditional animation will make a comeback?

  • Anonymous

    This sounds fun! Here’s a question I have: Do you think the success of the Wreck-It Ralph and Frozen sequels would mean more Disney sequels in the future?

    • Manuel Orozco

      Possibly. Disney might as well do sequels to Big Hero 6 and Zootopia while at it. But for the time being, I’m okay with the BH6 TV show coming out this Fall on Disney XD.

  • Which animated feature that is currently in production (could be Hollywood, indie, a kickstarter project, etc) do you think will be a huge game changer in the animation industry?

    • Roy K.

      I think the Dragon’s lair movie by Don Bluth has the potential to either do great, resurging confidence in hand draw animation, or be quickly forgotten. I really hope it’ll be the former. Also, I know Disney has no planned feature including this, but the Meander technology (used in Paperman) has HUGE potential.

  • What animation studio do you think is the best?

    • Manuel Orozco

      Pixar

      • You sir, have excellent taste. 😉

        • Manuel Orozco

          I care more about their features than their shorts but if the past two years has proven us, it’s that they still got magic in them.

          • Perhaps. For me, I haven’t loved a Pixar short since TS3’s Day and Night. They’re just not as good as they used to be.

          • Manuel Orozco

            I haven’t seen one since the one where Rex imagines himself in a party while playing in the bathtub with Bonnie. Saw that one on Disney Channel and it was all right

          • Manuel Orozco

            In case you want to know why I love Pixar so much, they always turn the what at first from the teaser seems to be the craziest ideas into something beautiful and a whole lot more. And it takes striking film imagery, sophisticated storytelling and family friendly appeal to make that happen.

          • Not even Piper? I loved Piper!

          • Piper was very cute, but nothing new in my opinion. Also didn’t help that it uses the same conclusive moral that Pixar’s last film did (The Good Dinosaur was all about conquering the fears of nature too).

          • I’ll grant you, the message wasn’t extraordinary. But it was infectiously inviting, and was the most adorable short film I’ve ever seen by any studio.

          • I agree that it was quite adorable.

          • Manuel Orozco

            I probably picked a good reason to avoid Finding Dory when it was in theatres last year. But I’m not skipping Cars 3 because I already got my Fandango tickets for 48 hours from now.

          • That’s cool! I hope to be seeing Cars 3 this Sunday.

            Although I don’t love the Piper short as much as others, I do highly recommend Finding Dory. I found it to be as clever as it was entertaining. Not as awesome as Finding Nemo though. 😉

          • Manuel Orozco

            Well I ended up watching Dory on demand six months ago. And I agree. Dory was also rather touching. I was just saying I had not seen a Pixar film in theatres since Cars 2 six years ago. I mostly wait until DVD.

  • Bob Smith

    I’m not good at coming up with questions, but questions regarding animated shows are worth asking.

    For some reason, it’s movies that get much more attention.

    • Manuel Orozco

      I’m actually surprised

  • Frank Coufal

    What do you think animation will be like in the future?

  • So awesome!!
    Best animated funny moment? 😀
