If you haven't watched this special on HBO yet well..you can watch it here. It is just a conversation with 4 of the most popular comedians over the last 10-20yrs. What is interesting is all the parallels between art forms. You really get a sense of their process and all 4 are different or have different takes about their craft. Comedy is an art just like animation. Have a listen and think about how much it may sound just like what you have hears throughout your animation discussions.
Some great slow motion reference of reaction both pain and joy in the face. You really get a sense of how some of the muscles area firing. For more about that check out the interview I did with Andy Conroy about facial animation.
Great news from Animators Resource and Long Winter Studios. You may have been seeing the news about new rigs hitting the internets soon. Well only here LWS is offering a $10 coupon to the first 5 peeps that purchase the Walter Rig today!
Fun insight to animating dialogue with Aaron Blaise. Like he says there are a TON of workflows that help with lip sync and you can take bits and pieces from them to help create your own, like I did with swing sets.(does anyone remember me reference this before?)
What a great comparison between from Frozen on what the animator may see in the storyboard phase when they start their shot. This is great when working on a feature film and really allows the animator to focus on the performance and animation.
