How to Make TRIPLE GOOBERBERRY SUNRISE from SpongeBob SquarePants! | Feast of Fiction | S6 Ep 3

WAIIIITERRRRR! Come on in and be a Goofy Goober, we'll learn how to make the TRIPLE GOOBERBERRY SUNRISE from SpongeBob SquarePants! Just try not to eat too many of them, ok?:



INGREDIENTS:
Vanilla ice cream
Twizzler's Pull & Peel
Bananas
Maraschino cherries
Different colored M&Ms
Magic Shell Chocolate Sauce
Toothpicks / Pretzel sticks

The preparation is simple! In a bowl, pile on your vanilla ice cream until it is the shape of the gooberberry sunrise (a larger dome below a smaller dome). Let this freeze and harden in your freezer for 10 minutes. Cut your Twizzler to be the size of the mouth, then carefully place it on alongside your colored M&Ms and place back in the freezer. Cut your bananas to size and add a Maraschino cherry to the end of each using a toothpick or pretzel stick.

Remove your ice cream from the freezer and very carefully pour your Magic Shell chocolate sauce to a spoon and add it to the top of your sundae. Once you've created a nice hat, carefully place the banana arms and head onto your sundae and that's it! Serve immediately, as you don't want to see what this sunrise looks like when it's started to melt!

Nickelodeon And Farnaz Esnaashari-Charmatz To Attend Cape Town International Animation Festival 2017

Proudly presented by Animation SA, the sixth Cape Town International Animation Festival (CTIAF) takes place from Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th March 2017 at the River Club in Observatory, Cape Town.


Offering something for all ages, the annual festival brings South Africans the chance to catch some of the world’s best animated films as well as an exciting range of masterclasses and workshops with global industry leaders, providing a rare opportunity to engage with them.

The CTIAF has become a significant fixture on the international festival calendar and provides a platform and marketplace for the fast-growing African animation industry. This year it received 221 entries for submissions from 40 countries. The festival also hosts business-to-business (B2B) sessions, producer events, networking opportunities and government panel discussions in addition to student competitions, an outreach programme and outdoor screenings.

The CTIAF is made possible thanks to generous support from sponsors the National Film and Video Foundation; Wesgro; Animation SA and the French Institute of South Africa. CTIAF has also partnered with Nickelodeon, South African Airways and Draw for Life.


Farnaz Esnaashari-Charmatz

Attendees won’t want to miss the inspiring Farnaz Esnaashari-Charmatz, who is living proof that wishes can come true at the Nickelodeon Animation Studio. While working as a post-production supervisor on Dora The Explorer and Go, Diego, Go!, Esnaashari-Charmatz dreamed of making her own preschool series. Inspired by her Iranian-American upbringing, she wanted the series to have strong female heroes set against a vibrant multi-cultural fantasy world. And so her series Shimmer and Shine was born. The series has since become one of Nickelodeon's top-rated preschool series. In each episode, the twin genie sisters are faced with obstacles that they have to work together to overcome.


Shimmer and Shine

As a mother of two young kids, Farnaz sees the importance of empowering children with an understanding of resilience. Through the series, kids see that even though the outcome may not be exactly what they wished for, there is always a way to figure things out!

An exciting feature of the industry events will be a talk by producer Ivan Rouveure from Les Armateurs whose work includes Oscar nominated film The Secret of Kells, the TV series T'choupi à l'école and Kirikou et les Hommes et les Femmes which was nominated for a French César award.

Another incredible opportunity will be the talk by Veronique Encrenaz, to hear how to make your pitch and projects stand out from the crowd. With nearly thirty years’ experience in the industry, Encrenaz is project manager at MIFA (Marché International du Film d’Animation), which is associated with the Annecy Animation Film Festival, one of the the largest animation-focused markets and festivals in the world.

“We are also delighted to announce that Nat Abraham and Craig McGillivray, the President and Vice President of distribution, from the Canada-based Breakthrough Entertainment Inc are joining us. They are an award winning producer and distributor of premium content for worldwide audiences,” says festival director Dianne Makings.

This year, in collaboration with Design Indaba, the CTIAF will be presenting the African premiere of Revolting Rhymes, an adaptation of a Roald Dahl/Quentin Blake classic, which premiered to critical acclaim on BBC One at Christmas, produced by Magic Light Pictures and animated by Triggerfish Animation Studios. Coinciding with the one hundredth anniversary of Dahl’s birth, the two films combine the classic fairy tales of Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, The Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk and Cinderella, serving them with a mischievous twist.

There will be a screening of My Life as a Courgette which recently was announced as an Academy Award Nomination for Best Animated Feature Film and won in the same category at the European Film Awards, as well as Crystal and Public Awards at the Annecy International Film Festival and was Switzerland’s official entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards. This stop-motion feature film is adapted from Gilles Paris’ book about children and the strength of resilience amongst a group of friends, advocating empathy, comradery, sharing and tolerance.

“We are celebrating the depth of our internationally recognised South African talent while presenting the opportunity for industry players to gain access to global icons in the field,” says Makings. “We aim to promote and be a gateway for the African industry while connecting animation creators from around the world.”

Other industry events include Vanessa Sinden from Story Lab who will host a workshop on 'How to prepare and present your pitch bible'; panel discussions on skills building initiatives and transformation in the industry, and talks about funding and the results of the recent animation survey.

The mouthwatering line up also includes storyboarder and visual development artist Marc Moynihan, who has worked with the likes of Aardman Animation and Simon’s Cat; Mike Buckland, head of Production at Triggerfish Animation Studios; Autodesk applications engineer Dane Chapman, who helps clients build 3D environments and creative director and production designer Ree Treweek.

“Nick Hall, Glenn Gillis and Pippa Tshabalala are just two of the keynote speakers to address the gaming sector,” says Makings. “A new addition this year is an exhibition space where animators can get feedback on their portfolios from industry experts. Other films include the best of the Annecy Festival. Tickets to workshops and screenings sell out quickly so I advise people to book early and check their venue ahead of time.”

The CTIAF’s creative partner this year is Tulips and Chimneys, who designed the 2017 branding. They work across books, film, character design, concept development, illustration, animation direction and production design and will soon be re-releasing their acclaimed fantasy book, The Tale of How.

The schools’ student competition has been extended to include high schools this year, with Nickelodeon once again sponsoring the phenomenal opportunity for one student to do an internship at Nickelodeon in the USA.

The Outreach programme has also grown and will be hosted at the Isivivana centre in Khayelitsha. There will be movies in the morning, drawing classes with Draw for Life, and various workshops to teach the fundamentals of animation.

“We are delighted to be involved with the Festival for the sixth year,” says Frédéric Chambon, head of Film and Media, French Embassy/Institute of South Africa. “The French and South African animation industries have a long history of collaboration and the Festival has over the years provided many fruitful opportunities for growth and collaboration in the sector.”

“The animation industry is rapidly growing and it has the potential to be one of our biggest creative export products,” says Monica Rorvik, head of Film and Media Promotion at Wesgro, the official Tourism, Trade and Investment Promotion agency for Cape Town and the Western Cape. “Our animators are among some of the best in the world and Wesgro strongly supports opportunities such as the festival that create platforms for them to connect and to thrive.”

“We have been a long-time partner of the Cape Town International Animation Festival as part of our commitment to funding initiatives that nurture our incredible South African talent, grow skills development opportunities and promote the industry as a unique driver of economic growth,” says Zama Mkosi, CEO of the National Film and Video Foundation.

“Canada’s film and TV industry is not just about great productions and actors. Canada is also a key player in the digital media industry. From animation and gaming, to amazing special effects, Canada is leading the way. I am delighted to support the participation of Canadians in the Cape Town Animation Film Festival, especially this year. Canada celebrates its 150th birthday in 2017 and I can't think of a better way to celebrate than promoting Canadian-South African collaboration in cultural industries." says Sandra McCardell, high commissioner of Canada to South Africa.

Detroit Lions' Kerry Hyder Fulfills Lifelong Dream By Getting Slimed By Nickelodeon At Super Bowl

Detroit Lions' Kerry Hyder spent part of his weekend working with kids at the NFL Experience in Houston ahead of Super Bowl LI. Then he got to turn back into a kid for a few seconds himself, stepping into the Nickelodeon slime tank wearing a blue Detroit Lions shirt to receive the ultimate Nickelodeon honor - a Nickelodeon Sliming!


Childhood dream fulfilled -- something the defensive lineman proudly posted on his Twitter account Sunday night. He did take the easy way out a little bit, wearing a clear poncho over his clothing before getting slimed instead of accepting his slime fate on his clothes:

"Ride" Star Kendra Leigh Timmins Talks Horses, Stunts, and the Toronto Raptors

Kendra Leigh Timmins, a Horse lover, stars in Ride, a brand-new Nickelodeon TV show about a girl named Kit, who is scared to ride Horses but ends up competing in equestrian events. The show premieres with back-to-back episodes on Monday, January 30, at 8:00 and 8:30 p.m. ET/PT. To celebrate, Timmins spoke with SI Kids about her favorite sports, getting into character on set, and some silly moments that happened along the way!:

How did you get into acting?
I first got into acting by being in my school play. I was five years old, and we were doing The Wizard of Oz. I played a chipmunk, a flower, and a munchkin.

How did you get this role?
I auditioned for this role. It was something that came along, and I just read it and thought, “This is super awesome. This is a great character, and it films in Northern Ireland, and it involves Horses. I have to be a part of this.” And then I had, I think, four or five auditions, where they kept narrowing it down and changing things up. Four or five weeks later, I got the call saying that I got to play Kit.

Do you relate to your character?
Definitely! I think Kit and I are a lot alike. She's a little quirky, and she has a lot of energy. She always means well, but sometimes she gets herself into trouble. And I've also been told that I am as stubborn as Kit is.

What was your reaction when you got the role?
When I got the phone call from my agent, I did a very, very embarrassing happy dance in my apartment by myself, and I was so excited, and I was crying, and the first thing I did was hang up the phone and call my sister. I had to tell her, and then we had a party over the phone.

Are you a sports fan?
I like to play sports more than I like to watch them, but I'm from Canada, so I have to cheer on my [Toronto] Raptors.

What sports do you play?
I love soccer. I played soccer all the time growing up. I try to get out and play with friends any time that I can. I feel like dance should count as a sport because there is a lot involved in that, so those are probably the two that I still do the most of. I like to keep active because I think it's more fun to get exercise that way.

Do you have experience with Horses in the past?
I actually went to a Horseback riding summer camp when I was younger because I thought Horses were so cool, and I just loved them so much. So I had ridden a little bit, and I was really comfortable around Horses. But we learned Western style, and it's more English-style riding in the UK, [where the show is set], so I had switch it up a little bit. But we were very well trained and very well looked after.

Other than that, you were able to get into character pretty well?
That was the only real learning curve. My character in the show, Kit, has been afraid of Horses her whole life, so it was kind of nice because I also didn't have to be very good. I didn't even have to pretend that I knew what I was doing until a little bit later on, so it was really nice.

Do you have any funny stories about the Horses from filming?
Our Horses had really big personalities. A lot of the horses we worked with had worked on other movies. The main Horse in War Horse was the Horse on our set, and lots of our Horses had been in Game of Thrones and all kinds of movies. So when they got on set, they were divas. They knew that they were the stars and that they were in charge. One of the Horses used to notice when someone had a walkie-talkie in their pocket, and he would lean over and pull it out of their pocket and just drop it on the ground. It was just to get some attention for himself, and that was always pretty funny.



Did you jump while riding a Horse in the filming process?
Actually, I don't think any [of the actors] jumped only because when you’re filming, sometimes it’s a little bit difficult because you have to concerned about safety and making sure the actors are O.K. We had incredible stunt doubles who did the jumping. We needed them because when you’re jumping, technically it’s great and everything looks awesome, but we had things written in the script like, “So-and-so gets distracted and knocks a pole,” which means that all of a sudden the stunt double not only had to be able to jump, but also knock a pole specifically when they needed to, which gets a little complicated. Luckily, we had a very good team. I don't know how they did it, but it was pretty phenomenal.

What would you say was the most athletic thing that you had to do on a Horse?
I had to mount a Horse bareback, which I had never done before. I’d always used a saddle, and I remember that day because they walked both my stunt double and me through it. They had her run it to show me how it would look, and even she was having a bit of a struggle because it’s just a larger Horse. And you have to do a little bit of a jump. I went, “You know what? I want to try it. I want to go for it.” I ended up being able to do it, and we got a bunch of takes. That was one of my very proud moments of Horsemanship.

Do you have any advice for young actors?
My best advice is to do it as much as you can. Sign up for anything that involves performing or working with other people. If there is a play going on at your school, or maybe sign up to be in the choir, or find a play that’s in your neighborhood instead, and then work really, really hard at it.

This interview has been edited for length and clarity.

Come along for the ‘Ride’

By Emma Darmody, JJ Joyce and Max Melnik, Lauren Smalley


Our interview with actress Kendra Leigh Timmins was a once in a lifetime experience! Early last week we went to the Nickelodeon offices in Manhattan to talk to Kendra. To prepare for the interview, we looked up information about her to get ideas for questions.

We found out that Kendra was born in London, Ontario, Canada. We came up with questions that allowed us to know more about Kendra and her character, Kit, on her new show, “Ride,” which airs this Monday night at 8 p.m. on Nickelodeon.

We saw the premiere of the show so we could get ready for our interview. Here are just a few of the things that we found out. The show is filmed in Ireland and Toronto. Since she has been on so many TV shows, we wanted to know of all the characters she has played and which one is most like her.

Kendra told us that she is a lot like Kit from “Ride.” She also told us that right now she prefers working on TV shows instead of movies. One of the reasons is it gives her more time to find out and relate to the character she is playing.

Just kidding around, we wanted to know who were the better actors: the horses or the people. She answered immediately and laughed, “Definitely the horses!” She told us that her mom is with her most of the time when she is on the set acting.

So, what is the new show all about? Well, it’s about horses, adventure, making friends, and trying to be yourself as a kid. You will love watching Kendra as Kit as she adjusts to her new life at Covington Academy -- an elite equestrian-focused boarding school that looks like a beautiful castle.

Kit moves to Covington with her dad, who has a new job.

Almost all of the students ride horses, except Kit. One horse named TK is always getting out of hand, and no one seems to be able to tame the horse. The other people at the school want to get rid of the horse, but Kit feels differently. Kit, who is generally afraid of horses, finds her fears going away as she spends time and bonds with TK.

Kit develops a relationship and connects with this wild horse. Kit feels that the horse is misunderstood and she wants to keep the horse. Other kids who watch Kit interact with TK are amazed by her ability to tame the horse and feel that Kit has a special gift.

You will also love watching how Kit develops new friendships at Covington Academy and how she handles being the new girl in a new place. Kit has a new roommate who is quite different from her, but we loved to see how Kit teaches her new roommate how to have a little fun, fool around, and get in a little bit of trouble. You will love the way Kit handles the new rules she should follow, but finds a way to be herself and breaks the rules, just a little bit! We love Kit’s personality in this show and the scenery is beautiful, it really takes you away!

Kendra is such a great actress! Kit and Kendra have lot in common. They are both funny, quirky, girlie, but yet also have a bit of a tomboy in them.

Kendra really showed the funny and quirky side of herself after our interview was over when we took many pictures, some with big smiles and some with silly faces. We also introduced her to the app, Musical.ly, which she had never heard of before.

She took the time to download the app and find a song that we all liked. We decided on the song “Bad Blood” by Taylor Swift for Kendra’s very first Musical.ly. It was so much fun. Kendra was so patient and kind, and we had a blast with her. We hope you love her new show “Ride,” just as much as we did.
