How to take your animation TO THE NEXT LEVEL - part 2

This is part 2 of the How To Take Your Animation To The Next Level series and I'm exploring the classic "Sit Down" assignment and using a clever kid and awesome Disney Animation character studies as inspiration for your future animation scenes!

Westworld Season 2 "Les Écorchés" - Acting Analysis

It's Thursday and that means Acting Analysis day and before this season of "Westworld" ends I wanted to take a look at two sequences and talk about contrast in character through simple eye movement behavior differences and how quiet moments with whispers and people's reactions could be a great inspiration for your pantomime animation scenes.

True Detective - Acting Analysis

This acting analysis clip covers a lot of different topics: unspoken history through body acting, expanding the scope of your scene through extra characters, sneaking in polished animation for extra awesomeness, and more, as I'm walking you through this sequence from "True Detective", season 1.

*hahaha not sure why I said "nervous" during that nun animation by Guilherme Jacinto, she's more frustrated than nervous :)
