I know this has been out for a bit but I just recently watched it again and couldn’t get over the amazing Body Mechanics in this short. Great job to the team at Black Sun Entertainment. They have a great site up that shows some of the Making Of, so head on over and check it out. Otherwise enjoy the film.
|Mike Walling Body Mechanics|
Mike is amazing at communicating very clearly how he approaches animation. In his first Video he shows how he uses live action reference as inspiration for his planning and blocking stage. In his second video he runs through how he polishes his shots into full feature level animation. We are making these quicktime videos super affordable and downloadable so that anyone who is learning animation can avail of this resource. Mike really enjoyed the process of making this video so much that he has already planned out his next video”
So check em out and enjoy! You can also check out Mike’s site
The Animation Mentor Newsletter came today and it had some small tips on body mechanics from Wayne Gilbert. An animator that I feel is one of the best at explaining and breaking down simple planning for working through your body mechanics exercises. Lots of what he says can be found in his book on his site www.anamie.com. You can sign up for the newsletters here. They are always a good resource and great updates on the industry.
So check it out. More on body mechanics to follow. An older post with some more on Wayne Gilbert here.
