interesting blogs

as this blog expands, so will its content be cleaned, washed and focused.

But this morning, before diving into my animation, I had a browse on the net. Here are two very interesting blogs
The first one has many interesting posts on acting choices.
The second one has lots of nice information such as which books, links for references etc. It seems a perfect example of what I hope this blog can be, but instead of one voice, this site can hopefully be the voice of many, plus present our lovely mini-challenges

I hope you guys and girls enjoy the read, take care for now and happy animating!

Composition and staging

A question was recently asked about how do you go about learning staging and composition for animation. I posted the question on 11 sec club, already there have been some great responses.
I particularly like the link to which discusses the development stages of composing a a shot for a golf swing.

The artist talks you through its development, discussing how he has come about the final decision.
