Tom and Jerry is the reason why I became an animator. What and awesome carrer and what a huge contribution Joe Barbera has made to animation. Thank you for the countless hours of fun!
sorry been away so long. Will try and post regularly from now on. Having a blog is like having a conscience. It keeps pricking at you till your drawn back to you. I been very busy at work but I am finding a couple of hours a week to teach. I will try and document those expereince over the next few weeks.
This has got to be the best site on animation ever. I find myself waiting for each new update….
I think there are many ways to classify acting. One of it is implicit and explicit.
In explicit acting the character is visually/verbally presenting his accurate emotions. Like if a char is happy then its YIPEEEEEEEEEEEEE! and jumping up and down. If he is morose then its frown and heavy steps.
In implicit acting the chracter is not Visually/verbally true to his inner emotions. If the character is happy then he pretends to sad or normal while trying to contain all the energy from his true emotion. This is fun acting, lots of oppourtunities for animators to be animators.
Every kind of acting has its place even hammy acting. A good movie will have a nice texture of the various types of acting shots.
Found out from the animaionnation.com
I wont be able to make it. If anyone is then please let me know how it went.
What a heart breaking story to read! I dont if his analysis is correct but its an informative (and painful) story to read, all 22 pages of it.
