Hi, it's me again.

First of all I would like to thank you for pointing me towards The Animator's Survival Kit. I feel my head is going to explode with all of the things I'm learning! I'm really looking forward to trying some of this stuff out.

Just one question for right now. I am currently reading about animating walks, and I was wondering if you "break" joints when animating. I know it works with 2D animation, but does it look weird with 3D animation?

2. How become the shots assigned to the animators? Is there a list you can choose a new one from, when a shot is done? Can you disclaim a shot, or pick a more favorite one?
Hi Michael,
1. Yes, those are the actual animatics from prepro
2. The Directing and Supervising Animators assign the shots based on the animators' availability, skills and director's desire. We can also request specific shots if we wish.

Hi Victor,

I s'ppose I missed my chance and won't get to hear from you.
In any case I'll have to say thank you for the hard work it must have been
for you to post all this.

I found this thread very informative and have to quote you

Unless they break a leg, in which case we have to shoot them.

Thanks for a continuing laugh and some great inspiration

You're part of Internet history!
I really think Pixar is pioneering 3D animation and technology into this new century.
I'm personally utterly fascinated by Animation and Cartoons as they evolve.

I started doodling when I could hold a pencil and have teenage flipbooks
I can still laugh at. I've also done Fine Arts studies.
My animations are now imminent but I'm still looking forward to some intense reading.

Hope you still get to this post, and I hereby leave a promise that I will have shorts someday.
No I don't mean the Bermuda type.
