Blog Highlight: Brendan Body

Hey everyone

Quick post about this blog. I first ran into a post on Spungella about wings on birds. Then I also ran into the blog again on Carlos Baena’s site. So I thought I would share because Brendan Body has a serious amount of great post on here. One I found on breathing I read twice!

So have a look around..really worth a look. Thanks for the posts guys!
Enjoy this great resource!

A Note from Carlos Baena on Acting

A Note from Carlos Baena on Acting

Every now and then I think it’s great to revisit blogs or sites that I remember and read over old posts. With all of the information out there now it’s super hard to keep up with it. That is what I am here for! I read this post over a year or so ago and although I was still in school at the time it was a great post about “Timing and Acting” by Carlos Baena. I read it again and it has a whole new meaning. Carlos takes a clip from “Seinfeld” in which he breaks down his thought process as an animator as he watches the clip. Now it’s hard to put our own thought process into words so
when you have an animator of this caliber doing it so clearly, it can be a great learning tool. He also has another example from “Seinfeld” using Elaine and facial “Expressions” to help with acting. Carlos also breaks it down and gives us his insight.

There are many of these gems through his site so revisit if you haven’t been to his site already.

Enjoy

Planning is SOOOO important!

Planning is SOOOO important!

Hey everyone

I stumbled on this post from Carlos Baena’s site. It was from one of the shots that he did on The Incredibles. The one where he saves the “jumper” and crashes through the building leading to the supers getting sued. He shows the process of his planning for the shot from thumbnails to video ref. It is a great read and really inspirational.
