Morata set to complete Madrid move

first_imgAlvaro Morata is set to complete a loan move from Chelsea to Atletico Madrid this weekend amidst protest from Atleti supporters.The Spain international who was caught in a three-way transfer involving Gonzalo Higuain and Krzysztof Piątek finally looks set to seal a loan move to the Los Colcheneros.Morata struggled to live up to expectation as Chelsea’s leading striker, managing a meager goal return of 24 in the 72 appearances he made for the Blues.Gonzalo Higuain’s recent move to Chelsea to reunite with Maurizio Sarri simply meant that the 26-year-old had no future at Chelsea.In wake of the Argentine’s arrival, reports in Spain suggests that Morata had arrived in Spain on Saturday evening ahead of his imminent switch to Diego Simeone’s team.Nonetheless, Morata’s previous affiliation with Atletico’s rivals Real Madrid has already earned him a hostile reception from the club’s ultras even before his move was official.During Saturday’s league clash with Getafe, the ultras chanted against the signing of the former Juventus striker while endorsing their academy product Borja Garces.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.When asked about the fans’ reaction that echoed throughout the Wanda Metropolitano following his side’s 2-0 win, Diego Simeone insists that he understood the fans sentiments.However, he was quick to throw his full support behind the decision to bring Alvaro Morata to the club.“The fans’ opinion is always respectable,” he said, according to LiveSoccerTV.“I look for players who serve the club and the team.”last_img read more

Disney greenlights top secret VR short film project

first_img Sundance Festival Share your voice Post a comment Scoop Virtual Reality Disney Augmented reality (AR) 1:50 Russell and Gipson could discuss only limited details about the next VR piece. It’s likely to also be a short that falls in the three- to five-minute range. And the company is allowing Gipson and his team to explore using Disney’s existing cast of characters in VR, Russell said. “The studio is super excited about it,” Russell added. With a look and feel that’s unmistakably Disney, the 3-minute-long Cycles depicts the history of one family in their midcentury modern California home, with vignettes about them that jump back and forth in time over the course of about 40 years. Beyond demos at film festivals like Sundance, the company hasn’t defined a release plan for Cycles. Most of the shorts created in the internal shorts-development program led by Russell are never released. “Because this is our first VR, it’s raised so many questions for the studio” that challenged presumptions about how things are always done, Gipson said. But the team that created Cycles is open to wide public release on a platform like the Oculus store. “That’d be nice,” Russell said. “Talk to our bosses, let’s get that sorted out.”Culture: Your hub for everything from film and television to music, comics, toys and sports.Movie Magic: The secrets behind the scenes of your favorite films and filmmakers.

Over the weekend at Sundance, Disney revealed that Cycles isn’t going to be its last venture into VR.In the last month, Walt Disney Animation Studios gave the greenlight to another “top secret” VR short from Jeff Gipson, the director of Cycles. That was the word from Gipson on Sunday, as Disney showed off Cycles — about the life of one family — to press and movie industry insiders on the sidelines of the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. “What Cycles is proving is VR is something the studio wants to explore,” said Nicholas Russell, one of Cycles’ producers and the head of the Disney professional development program that created it in four months. “The fact that they greenlit another one this quickly is proof that they might not know exactly what tomorrow looks like for Disney and VR, but we’re going to keep exploring.”Disney’s interest in VR — as a storytelling medium in its own right rather than simply a marketing tool — comes as the media titan is poised to make several big leaps. Set to take over much of 21st Century Fox later this year, Disney is not only expanding into the biggest traditional studio but also reorganizing itself around launching a Netflix-like streaming service, Disney+. With Disney CEO Bob Iger calling Disney+ the company’s top priority, Disney Animation Studio’s VR experiments like Cycles and Gipson’s next project suggest Disney’s embrace of risky new tech is broader than streaming. If VR is to survive, it needs heavyweights like Disney buying in. VR was one of technology’s buzziest trends in the last three years, attracting giant investments by heavyweights like Google, Facebook and others. But its hype has fizzled lately, as widespread adoption of VR proved elusive. Without gotta-see-it content compelling people to try the unfamiliar format, consumers have been ambivalent about these odd headsets you strap to your face.But Disney has show a wider interest in VR over the last several months. Earlier this month, Disney showed off a Marvel-based VR game that you play in the back of an Audi electric car. In September, the company was among the lead investors in virtual-reality startup Jaunt VR’s $66 million round of funding. And it made a location-based VR game based on Disney Animation’s Ralph Breaks the Internet.last_img read more
