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

http://brendanbody.blogspot.com/search/label/Tutorials
The first one has many interesting posts on acting choices.

http://www.carlosbaena.com/resource/resource_books.html
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 http://sevencamels.blogspot.com 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.
