Animation Artifacts 20 Jul 2006 07:38 am
- Hans Perk, on his excellent site A-Film LA, has been posting many of the Disney notes for the afterhours classes at the studio in the 30′s. I also have a pretty complete collection of these. One document that I value is the original memo Walt Disney sent to Don Graham in 1936 discussing how they should set up these classes.
The letter gives a clear indication of what Disney thinks a good animator does, and what makes for a good animator.
Since Hans is taking a break and hasn’t posted this, I thought I would. It’s an interesting memo. Here are the 8 pages:
- Alan Cook on his blog Cooked Art has an interesting commentary on CGI vs rotoscope vs motion capture. It’s worth the read, and his site is worth visiting.
- Dave Nethery on his site You’re A Gazelle features photos of a Cintiq imbedded in an animation table virtually replacing the disc. It’s an interesting idea on an interesting blog. His studio site is also worth a visit.
