On my trip back home to Colorado, my dad gave me a book he was reading to improve his creative writing, The Art and Craft of Storytelling by Nancy Lamb. There are several great excerpts and takeaways that translate into creativity in any field, not just literature. In one of my favorite sections, she suggested [...]

Live lip dub proposal

Posted by aleeCO on May 24, 2012 in Inspiration

I always get a kick out of lip dubs. Coordinating and keeping the energy and excitement up with a group of people can be a challenge. This one got blown up pretty quick ~ certainly cute and well-executed. Hats off this creative, spontaneous group of people!

“There is no particular mystery in animation…it’s really very simple, and like anything that is simple, it is about the hardest thing in the world to do. ” – Bill Tytla, at Walt Disney Animation Studios (1937) Great quote I found on Scott Owen’s page: http://www.siggraph.org/education/materials/HyperGraph/animation/anim0.htm

Ben Fischler shared this link. The Beauty Of a Second – 3rd round compilation (Instant Bliss) from The Beauty Of A Second on Vimeo. This is wonderful as a stand-alone. We can learn from this as animators. The power of one second — think about how much information can be told with proper staging. Capturing [...]
