I wish I could! I'm not at Disney anymore though and no longer have access to their rigs. You can learn to be an animator too. It's not impossible. ^_^ Check out books like The Animators Survival Kit, Animation Crash Course, Acting for Animators, etc. There are also plenty of online schools with great programs that are much cheaper than brick and mortar schools (Animation Mentor, iAnimate, AnimSchool, and AnimSquad).
Hey, You won't find my name in the credits for Bolt because I didn't work on it. I was there as an intern and the Animation Guild forbids Disney from having interns do production work. I was allowed to do tests with the rig, but nothing for the film itself. Thanks for looking though!
I seem to think you did the part in Wreck it Ralph where he's walking down central station with a cherry. Think that's one of the scene setters for the film; like little details like that and believe its in one of your demo reals.
Maybe you should have an a achievement or worked on list; know I would be proud. Could be a good idea for a journal post. Really need to have some reflection on all i've done too.
Yes, all animation is done frame by frame. It isn't drawn anymore since 3d animation is done with puppets (which have bones) that exist in the computer. But all of the principles of traditional animation still apply and you're still working on a 24 frames per second basis.
@00:06You're welcome. We animate everything on a frame by frame basis. There isn't anything that's done automatically. The computer is a tool, just like a pencil. Neither can automatically do anything and require the artist to make it work. ^_^
Lol, it's far from perfect but thanks! I honestly don't remember. it was one of my assignments as an intern at Disney. I've gotten much faster since then and know I can do a quad walk in about a day or so.
Hi, love it! Wow, u really work at Disney? Awesome, I love animated movies. I am only 11 but love to draw pokemon, LPS, and my own animal characters. I was wondering what program I could start out with to help me animate my characters? What do you recommend because I would love to work on a movie one day myself (maybe with Disney?!)
Hey, thanks! I work at Disney on and off. I was there during the spring and summer for Wreck-It Ralph but was let go afterwards and will be starting at Sony on The Smurfs 2 next month. You can produce 2d animation in Flash, Photoshop (the new version that has the timeline feature or w/e it's called), ToomBoom, Plastic Animation Paper, Digicel Flipbook, and/or Pencil. If you want to work in 3d, I recommend using Maya. That's the standard program for animation in the film industry for studios that dont use their own proprietary software package.
