Aaron Blaise: Animating a Jump

Lately Aaron has been doing some live streaming of his process. In this previously streamed video he did a jump with a polar bear. It is a great run through of his thoughts and process. If you get the chance follow him on facebook to get notices when he is live-streaming. I believe if you are subscribed to his youtube channel you will get an email update as well.

Have a look around.
