James Baxter's "Enchanted" Reel

Go to jamesbaxteranimation and watch his "Enchanted" demo reel. It's so good. I love those two shots (see pic). The movement, the flow, the rhythm, and not just by the character but also the hair and cloth, they all have character, they are all one. Those shots to me are THE prime example of how character animation should be done and why a lot of CG work is so cold because they lack that sense of rhythm. Why sim cloth and hair? Because it's hard as hell to animate it by hand, I know. But I can't wait to get animation controls all over hair and cloth. Very subjective of course but I could watch animation like that all day.
