Green Apples: "My feeling is that we should all strive to look like our Prophet
and General Authorities - "clean and neat"."I'm active LDS and have
worn a beard for the past 38 years, I strive to look like our Prophets:
Brigham Young, John Taylor, Wilford Woodruff, Lorenso Snow, Joseph F. Smith,
Heber J. Grant, and George Albert Smith.
how come pajama gladiator can be viewed but not kites?
The shorts can't be posted because the festivals where they play don't allow it.
Ah, the devolution of the conversation in to facial hairdom...Maybe Green Apples
and Halo Girl haven't noticed, but in the last two decades, well-groomed facial
hair on men has become very accepted in professional circles, and it has always
been welcomed in creative professions.
Hey, about the beard and hair; it would be good for Hollywood to see BYU
students employed by Disney to keep up the "clean and neat" look as they
represent BYU andmthe church. My feeling is that we should all strive to look
like our Prophet and General Authorities - "clean and neat".
I'm surprised to not already read the question I'm about to ask.Where do we see these films/movies/shorts?Are they on the web
anywhere? Does B.Y.U. feature them somewhere?I'd love to see the
actual objects of these awards.
I'm so proud of my brother James. He's been working on these films for a long
time and it's great that he's getting recognized for his accomplishments. His
new wife and my new sister-in-law is such a sweetie and I'm glad to have her in
my family now.Good job James and the BYU animation team!
...from the article:"Pack, who graduated last year and is now
working for Disney, said he feels a sense of accomplishment in having taken the
"road less traveled." He works for Disney so I assume he can wear a
The one with the beard is graduated
To Halo Girl: That was a really dumb post.
A BYU student with a beard? I thought the only person allowed to have a beard on
the campus was the statue there of Brigham Young.
Maybe filling Hollywood with people with "higher ideals" wouldn't cause people
to condemn it so much with corrupting morals.
They wait for the guys to serve missions. They recognize commitment, passion,
maturity - and that is, hopefully, what they get for being patient. I thank
them for it.
Way to go BYU! May you change Hollywood; dont let Hollywood change you! I
always enjoy reading about your computer/animation programs successes.
I'm guessing the clips attached to the article are clips not the whole movie?Hopefully you can see them on the Nick site?
As has been well documented in this paper and by your posts; Hollywood can use
your talents, your optimism, your vision and your morals. All the best to each
of you. But your future role in Hollywood is no different than the role any of
us have in our respective industries. You can't allow yourself to be taken down
as you try to lift others up.All the best, and congratulations.
Keep it coming.
Anonymous 1:50, That REALLY was a goofy post. In fact, Hollywood animation
people have told BYU professors to keep teaching religion to their students and
send them down to Hollywood to be hired. One executive told a BYU
animation professor that they hire a lot of sleezeballs in Hollywood. It's nice
to have someone with morals there to improve the caliber of people in the
business. She told him to keep teaching relgion to the animation graduates so
they can be a good influence in Hollywood. That's a true story.How
can we ever have a chance of getting high quality entertainment from Hollywood
if someone doesn't go down there and try to change things. Keep it up BYU.
We're really proud of you.
Congrats BYU! Intelligence, creativity, and dignity. Way
Way to go BYU animation! Keep racking in the emmys! The more BYU grads we can
get in Hollywood the better--even if it is only in Animation. Hollywood could
use some more people in it with higher morals.
BYU talent. Good job.
Great job to those talented students. It sounds like BYU has an outstanding
Hollywood does corrupt morals. What a goofy post.
You mean the evil Hollywood that produced "Big Love." This paper has spend a
week condemning Hollywood. Your readers have written in about how horrible
Hollywood is how Hollywood promotes corrupt morals.
