James Baxter Animation Lecture - Day One: Acting

Found @ Seward Street, this is a very interesting post about acting for animators. Some nuggets:

Actors do, while animators describe.


Milt has set it up so you only look at one thing at a time. He crafted the scene so that when Shere Khan pops open his claws, everyone is looking there. Nothing else is moving. (Waste of time to always be moving all the background characters).


Used Horton as an example of animation having too much to it. Loved the scenes with JoJo because you could actually focus on what he was doing.

Great notes, go read them as soon as you can!
