How do you animate really, really fast? - by Kevin Koch

You can’t animate it if you can’t see it, clearly, in your mind’s eye.

I wanted to add the second quote as well. It's great when you find someone who thinks the same way (not that I'm putting myself at the same level though!), but who's actually able to explain and articulate his thoughts in a way that makes sense. :)

"... knowing in great detail who your character is and exactly why they’re doing what they’re doing, and I’d push and push for specificity and clarity in their intentions..."

Great post about planning and speeding up your workflow by Kevin Koch, a must-read. You should print out his post and always carry it with you. - found @ Wong Loon's blog - pic source

Me and a work collegue were having a similiar discussion in the studio the other day and how all the greats like Speilberg must be able to clearly visualise in there head what they want to create. How else could they produce such stunning work?!

It's one thing to plan out one shot, but a whole movie? Holy moly. I guess that's why you should surround yourself with people who know what they're doing. :)
