Facial Expressions and Milt Kahl

Carlos Baena has two awesome posts on his site. First one about facial expressions, using the Seinfeld show as an example. Lots of great screen captures and important notes. I really want to highlight the first point of his:

Just because your character is upset or angry, doesn't mean that you should have an upset or angry expression. Sometimes a character that's so upset or sad that can't even handle their feelings, they display emotions through laughter or smile.

That's so true!

Next one is a humongous collection of Milt Kahl movies, notes, recordings, drawings, etc.

I liked the things about expressions. You are right, so true.

BTW, I think the link of Milt's resources is missing. Clicking on the image only takes you well, to the image.

Thanks for the heads-up and sorry about that! I fixed it!
