Exclusive ADVENTURE TIME poster reveal from Mondo!
Have you heard of Phil Tippett? Maybe not, but if you’ve seen Star Wars, Robocop, or Jurassic Park, then you are definitely familiar with his work. He’s an industry legend in character animation who’s spent the last 50 years bringing on-screen creatures to life, but the experimental short film Mad God may be the first vision that is so distinctly his own. Already decades in the making, it’s a no-holds-barred world of monsters and mayhem created with every old-school trick in the book, plus a super dedicated all volunteer crew. The technology they’re using — from stop-motion animation to digital imaging — may span the entire history of cinema, but the finished piece feels very chaotically right this minute. Another thing happening right this minute? It’s our Project of the Day.

30 Under 30: Entertainment
Our look at the 30 people in entertainment who you should be watching is a mix of folks from the worlds of film, television, sports and video games. Our sports stars are people like LeBron Jameswho are already changing the game. Lou Imbriano of TrinityOne consultancy helped with those choices. For our video game picks Sims creator Will Wright helped us nominate young gamers.Gossip Girl producer Stephanie Savage and Relativity Media co- president Tucker Tooley weighed in with their picks for Hollywood stars.
The entertainment industry is rife with young people who could be considered up-and-coming. For the sake of this list we looked for slightly under-the-radar stars like Chloe Moretz who have the potential to earn $20 million paychecks and people who are building real businesses and brands around themselves like Donald Glover and Jonah Hill.
We also included two of Larry Ellison‘s children, David and Megan, because both are proving that not all rich kids come to Hollywood to throw their money away and party. David Ellison is helping Paramount finance big films like Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and his sister Megan recently picked up the rights to the Terminator franchise.
