A-HAA: The Magic of Drawing 2

This excellent entry in the ASIFA Hollywood Animation Archive blog goes into the how 'magical' doing a drawing can be to an unaware audience. He uses an example of a live painter, as well as this entertaining segment from Penn and Tiller, to make their case, whilst showcasing some stunningly simplistic illustrations from Olaf Gulbransson. It's worth a look.

Animation Mentor Newsletter - July 2010

Animation Mentor Newsletter - July 2010

This is quite interesting, whether if you have recently graduated, or someone who needs to update their reel with new stuff- I fall into the latter in that scenario. Their theory on polishing up your student work up to professional standards might come in handy too.

Trigger Word Model: Throught


I was clearing out my camera, and I stumbled on my latest trigger word model, which I did several weeks ago.

This model is to illustrate the word 'through', which means "from one end or side to the other side or side of". So I depicted this by having a figure go through a box of old papers and magazines, and throwing the stuff they didn't want in the bin.

I took various shots of the clay model, and below are some of other shots that I attempted, just to show how I try and capture the model.

Rotten Tomatoes seem to be banging on another flawless critical reception of 100%... for now!
Their last contender, which they went ga-ga for, was Toy Story 3, but someone actually criticised it, giving a 99% score.
