Normal Pencil The Life and Times of an Animator

The Life and Times of an Animator.

Hey fellow animation fanatics!
My film is moving right along and is looking great! To thank everyone for sticking around despite my absence, I’d like to share this AMAZING animation that was done by a class here at SCAD last year. The style that they were able to accomplish and keep throughout the entire short is astounding and truly brings the book to life. Watch Ike’s Incredibly Incredible Ink here and pass it along for the world to see!
Enjoy!,

Hey everyone!
I’ve been busy with my film, so I haven’t been able to post in quite some time. But this article is worth taking some time to share with you guys!It’s a three part series on the cinematography methods used in The Incredibles. It was full of amazing tips for myself as a filmmaker, but also can open eyes to why certain choices were made throughout the entire film. It’s a pretty lengthy read, but totally worth it!
Read part 1 here.

Hello, fellow animators!
Not to post about Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 two days in a row, but Sony just released this priceless video on how each “foodimal” was inspired, in look and in how they acted. Watch the video on Sony Animation’s Facebook page here!

Good evening, ladies and gents!
I thought I would share this wonderful article about how Pixar was able to create their latest short, The Blue Umbrella. It’s really amazing how meticulous the entire process was, and to find out that none of it was live action, but all CG!

ANIMATORS, UNITE!
A fellow scaddie is in need of funds for her stop motion film, Lighthouse. As I’m sure you all know, building these puppets and sets can be quite pricey, so donations are crucial for its success! If that obstacle weren’t enough, SCAD has unfortunately dropped all stop motion classes for the quarter, and possibly for the year. However, this amazing animator is pressing forward to make her film a reality! 
Read more about this artist and her film here!
Any little bit helps, even passing the word along! If you do donate, you get a lovely gift (the top gift amounting to getting a puppet from the actual film!) and your name in the ending credits. :D
Let’s keep the art of stop motion animation alive!

Nickelodeon animation lovers, unite! Nickelodeon has green-lit two new animated series, Bad Seeds (seen in the picture above) and Pig Goat Banana Cricket. I’m really liking the looks of Bad Seeds, but I may be a bit biased in that the creator, director and writer is C.H. Greenblatt! (Also worked on Spongebob and created Chowder.)

Hey y’all!
For those of you who missed all the hype yesterday, there’s a new trailer for Disney’s Frozen! 
Watch the trailer here!
I’m noticing a strong resemblance to some Tangled characters, but maybe that’s just me…..
Happy Watching!,
