Disney’s Refugee Camp – Tom Hignite’s Miracle Studios : Darling Dimples – 2D Animation Blog
www.darlingdimples.com [cached]
The good news is that Tom Hignite has gathered a small group of animators in his new studio and they're working on a hand-drawn animation theatrical feature about a character called Miracle Mouse. From Tom Hignite after a tour of the Disney studios as reported in The Times:
...
Dimples would be remiss if we didn't include a section in this story about Tom Hignite. Who is Tom Hignite? The publicity photo at the top of this story would lead you to believe that he's an animator. He's not. He is the owner of "Miracle Homes". He's a housing contractor and, apparently, an over-the-top Christian. Dimples assumes that's why he names everything "miracle". From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Hignite acknowledges he had relatively little experience in animation when he began planning a studio. It took about a year of research before he could start looking for artists, he said.
His home-building business, which he also began with little experience, started in 1993 with two home sales. Last year, it sold 220 houses with a total value of about $42 million.
Hignite said he got into the business by selling a home he built on a lot that had been given as barter to his father. Hignite then quit his job as advertising manager for a boat dealer and started building houses full time.
Hignite said he drew the Miracle Mouse character, which has appeared in promotions for his home-building business for several years.
Some observers say the hard hat-donning Miracle Mouse looks a lot like Mickey Mouse, but Hignite said the character is unique, and he doesn't think it infringes on any Disney copyright.
Miracle Mouse looks like Mickey Mouse and the opening page on Miracle Studios' web page looks like the opening to Disney. This is not a good thing. Mr. Hignite may have carried too much baggage from the world of suburban sprawl into the world of theatrical animation.

When pondering how to construct smaller ...
www.canada.com, 19 Sept 2011 [cached]
When pondering how to construct smaller homes that young adults and renters could afford, homebuilder Tom Hignite turned his attention from the land to the sea. Cruise ships, to be exact.
He studied how the essentials of living were shoehorned into a small space in cruise-ship cabins, then figured out ways to incorporate some elements - such as built-in bunk beds and wooden lockers instead of closets - into a house containing a little more than 1,000 square feet. The result is what Hignite, owner of Miracle Homes, calls the "Mi-Pad" - a home with three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and a fireplace for as little as $89,000.
"They're contemporary in look," Hignite said.
...
One model can be developed to have five bedrooms, Hignite said.
"These are targeted at renters. There's a one-car attached garage," Hignite said.
"They are meant for people who have a no-car garage right now," he quipped.
"There's a large marketplace in rentals that could segue into this for the same cost as rent."
Mike Ruzicka, president of the Greater Milwaukee Association of Realtors, said Hignite may be on to something.
...
"We kind of looked at repo prices and decided to create a product line that would compete with that sort of repo price area of $90,000 to $150,000 - and get you a new home," Hignite said.
Because of the Mi-Pad's small size, he said, "they work well on urban lots" as well.
"There are little pockets around that allow it," he said.
Hignite has been known among southeastern Wisconsin homebuilders for sometimes quirky innovations.
Previous high-end models have included a movie theatre and themed children's bedrooms, for example.
Hignite made headlines six years ago when he hired almost a dozen laid-off animation artists from Walt Disney Co. to create Miracle Studios, which intended to make TV commercials and a feature film starring his company's mascot, Miracle Mouse.
The studio at his Richfield, Wis., headquarters has shrunk to "one or two" artists, Hignite said, but there still are plans to produce the movie.
"Of course our main business is still homebuilding, and everybody has a passion beyond their main passion or job," Hignite said.
The Mi-Pad houses on Gates Street in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin - which include extra features and finished spaces beyond the base-price models - are the only two in existence so far, Hignite said.
He wants to see if they catch on before building any more on speculation.
"It's a launch, and we're looking to see whether the public will accept it, because there haven't been 1,000square-foot houses built in many years," he said.
...
Miracle Homes is developing tiny, 1,000-square-ft homes Miracle Homes' owner, Tom Hignite, pictured August 31, 2011, calls Mi-Pads to appeal to first-time homebuyers. They'll sell for $90,000 and they use what Hignite calls a " cruise ship design" that allows the owners to cram a lot of stuff into little space.
