Week Seven

working our way through!

Making each acting performance unique

Want to know a secret? Actors, singers and dancers sometimes become incredibly bored, especially if they have performed the same script or routine again and again and again and… well, you get the picture.

Some nice tips (not all applicable to animation, but cherry pick) on keeping your shot unique. When working with a director you’ll be stuck with the script. It’s not your shot, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a say!

The Joy of Animation

The answers are in animation

Our director was in dailies with us this week and the subject of the difference between contemporary animation and that of the classic golden age came up. It was observed and generally agreed upon that the largest shortcoming of present day animators is the ability to reference past work as a means of problem solving.

A nice reminder. Learn from life!
