"A Moment in Time" behind the scenes

This almost wants me to get back to owning a Rift. Except that I can't draw, so it would be useless.

Looking to Get Into Animation For Games?

Nice write up! Go Mike! Check it out at Cartoon Brew. That GDC Tricks of the Trade clip was so much fun to do!

BBC World - Kid incident

The surprise! The escalation! The timing! The looks! It's such good reference.

It's a great example of how you can escalate a shot and start with something mundane and then keep adding and adding and adding.

 It's also a great example of adding conflict to a character. If a character just does something it's boring (most of the time) but if you add a problem it forces the character to deal with it and that tells us something about his/her character.

 And it's also a great example of taking a somewhat boring audio piece and making something much more entertaining out of it.
