Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved “Peanuts” gang make their big-screen debut, like they’ve never been seen before, in state of the art 3D animation. Snoopy, the world’s most lovable beagle – and flying ace – embarks upon his greatest mission as he takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis The Red Baron, while his best pal, Charlie Brown, begins his own epic quest. From the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of the ICE AGE films, THE PEANUTS MOVIE will prove that every underdog has his day.

Wikipedia: The Peanuts Movie
The Peanuts Movie (known in some countries as Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie) is a 2015 American 3D computer-animated comedy film produced by Blue Sky Studios and distributed by 20th Century Fox, based on Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip Peanuts. The film is directed by Steve Martino and written by Craig and Bryan Schulz (Schulz’s son and grandson, respectively), and Cornelius Uliano, and stars the voices of Noah Schnapp as Charlie Brown and, via archival recordings, Bill Melendez as Snoopy and Woodstock. It is the fifth full-length Peanuts film, and the first feature film in 35 years. It commemorates the 65th anniversary of the comic strip and 50th anniversary of the TV special A Charlie Brown Christmas, and was released on November 6, 2015.

The film sees Charlie Brown trying to improve his odds with the Little Red-Haired Girl. Meanwhile, Snoopy writes a book about the Flying Ace, as he imagines himself as a legend trying to save his love interest and pilot, Fifi, from the Red Baron and his army. The Peanuts Movie received positive reviews from critics and has grossed over $152 million. It received nominations for the Annie Award for Best Animated Feature and the Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film.

[Use of the word “Architect” is legally protected under the New Zealand Registered Architects Act (2005). On 21 August 2009 a query was put to the Chief Executive of the New Zealand Registered Architects Board (NZRAB) seeking to clarify if Fred van Brandenburg was a registered architect. The same day a reply was received that Mr Brandenburg was not registered and that NZRAB was beginning a procedure to get him registered. On 12 November 2009, subject to a further query, the NZRAB chief executive confirmed that Mr Brandenburg was now a New Zealand Registered Architect, registration number 2493. -Elizabeth Kerr]

Vandalism message (page 5)
Dunedin city has been dubbed New Zealand’s capital of heritage vandalism by disgruntled city landlord Jeff Dickie. Dickie erected this sign [pictured] on one of his tenanted buildings in George St depicting his version of a new city slogan yesterday, claiming the city council had a lack of interest on the heritage value of some city buildings.

[The Dunedin Heritage Fund is not “a city council fund”, as mentioned in the article. The Fund is a separate legal entity to that of “Dunedin City Council”, and has its own deed of constitution. The Fund is jointly administered by representatives of Council and New Zealand Historic Places Trust.

Stadium bosses are on a count down. Michelle Sutton reports.
Five hundred and twenty two days to go until stadium D day – and counting. Well, stadium bosses are. Numbers from an old cricket scoreboard hanging in the Carisbrook Stadium Trust offices serves as a daily reminder to staff working towards the August 1, 2011, completion date, of how many days are left to go.

Dunedin eyes 3D industry (page 18)
By Michelle Sutton
Dunedin is gearing up to become New Zealand’s 3D hub. 3D experts say the city is poised to cash in on the multimillion-dollar industry, which is gaining momentum and growing in NZ on the back of 3D hit Avatar. They say Dunedin’s film industry is picking up more 3D work, and is well positioned to become the country’s 3D hub, with the skills and experience to cover work in television, sports, animation and cinema.

Joshua Prince-Ramus: Building a theater that remakes itself
Joshua Prince-Ramus believes that if architects re-engineer their design process, the results can be spectacular. Speaking at TEDxSMU, Dallas, he walks us through his fantastic re-creation of the local Wyly Theater as a giant “theatrical machine” that reconfigures itself at the touch of a button.


TEDtalksDirector 26 January 2010 (filmed Oct 2009)

Joshua Prince-Ramus is best known as architect of the Seattle Central Library, already being hailed as a masterpiece of contemporary culture. Prince-Ramus was US Partner of Rem Koolhaas’ Office of Metropolitan Architecture before founding his own firm, REX, in 2006.

“Joshua Prince-Ramus isn’t just creating buildings. In a field obsessed with celebrity, he’s putting the work – and his workers – first.”

Dunedin must have 3D cinema!

Or die.

The ODT headline is another chilling event in a prolonged winter interlude. Dunedin is 2D – cardboard.

Dunedin stays a 2D town
By Mark Price
Dunedin looks likely to remain a two-dimensional city in a 3D world – at least, that is, in a cinematic sense.
Most people have seen the visual effects of Avatar in one of the country’s 23 3D cinemas.
Otago Daily Times inquiries yesterday suggested Dunedin will continue to be one dimension short of centres such as Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Nelson and… Hokitika.
