Animators Resource Full Interview – Zach Parrish

This is my full interview with Zach Parrish. In this interview, Zach breaks down a series of shots from his time as Animation Supervisor on Wreck It Ralph. He also takes us through some of his blocking techniques, chats about his time with Glen Keane and some of his duties as a Animation Supervisor. Sorry for the occasional Audio overlap…unfortunately it’s due to the capture of it. Hope you all 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.
