“Fierce” Out-takes

Even small budget films and animations have the best out-take reels. Watch during Ryan’s morning animation critique as the students reviewed the out-takes from the production of 1 of 10 video matrixes produced during the Art+Design Animation section of Design Camp 2008.

Storyboards Are Key

Working with standard 3″x3″ sticky notes we can easily layout simple storyboards before one begins any real animation. Using a standard 8×11 sheet of paper we can easily get 6 settings drafted out and then extend the storyboard from there based on keyframes or frames-per-second settings you want to shoot your animation at… Getting your key camera angles and setting these blocked scenes helps in finalizing your story as well as starting your project right.
