View Full Version : 2010 - Animation Reel

I finally put together a reel to show family and friends what I've been doing since I've been at Blur and thought it'd be nice to send it out to show what kinds of fun stuff we get to work on here at Blur Studios.

That reel was amazing :applause: . As a second year animation student do you have any nuggets of wisdom to impart at all?

Well aside from great amount of animation resources like, here's some quickies.

Richard Williams "Animator's Survival Kit"is an amazing resource for animation information. He's a bit addicted to animating on 1's, however it translates really well to 3d animation.

Use Reference
Jason Martinsen has a great example of how to correctly capture reference. Notice how he sticks strongly to his reference video. He even cuts up to footage so that it reads better when in animation form. Don't get into the habit of not using reference. It's probably one of the most important things for making your animation believable.

With that said, don't be afraid to redo sections of your animation if they're not working well. Don't fall in love with your work, that's the audience's job not yours. Make sure your blocking stage reads well and is well laid out. Don't skip to final animation without laying out good groundwork in your blocking stage. Also finally make sure that you complete your animations. There's plenty of learning throughout the entire process.
