@01:17Thanks! Yes, we work with the "finished" models and rigs. I put finished in quotation marks because the models and rigs tend to be updated throughout production. Animators make rig requests and the rigging department usually grants it (unless there isn't any time). We're given the soundtrack as well. That's added to our Maya/Voodoo files by the layout department.

Breakdown:
Shot 1: Animated Pascal and the girls
Shot 2: *Animation Redo on Rapz and Pascal (explanation at bottom of page)
Shot 3: None, included for comparison
Shot 4: Animated Booboo
Shot 5-14: Animated all characters

*The directors werenít happy with the original animation in the Rapunzel shot. This started as an
appeal and polish pass but turned into a complete animation redo once the directors decided they
werenít very fond of her performance. Iíve included the original animation (in greyscale) for
comparison. I animated Rapunzel and Pascal in the redo version.

@01:18Lol, I hope so. It'll be very difficult to be an animator if you avoid challenges since every new shot you get is exactly that. Plus animation itself isn't easy by any means.

Something to ask you, do you get the real finished rig to work with? Guess you have the sound track so you can animated as well. Is this true?

@01:18You have a super powerful demo reel. I'm a bed room dreamer next to the likes of you. I recently began working with Blender which I know is not industry standards in the 3d world but I have this idea to work really hard and self teach myself ... only because I already accrued too much school debt. Anyway- Really great to know that you have to work insanely hard and make a reel like your own to stick out. So maybe in 5 years for then... ha ha Super nice stuff you got!
I also am a bit partial to 2d animation rather than 3d.

Thanks! Why are you using Blender though? o_O If you're going to go through the process of learning new software wouldn't it make more sense to work with a program that's actually used in the industry? You're going to have to learn how to use Maya sooner or later anyway.You should be able to get a personal learning edition of Maya from the autodesk website for free too.

@01:18Thanks so much for all your imput on the animation experience you've had. Of coarse you are very talented to have worked on all those movies as well. I am really trying to self motivate and self teach myself the likes of Blender, After Effects, Cinema 4d, Flash.... I don't even know where to begin.. so far doing ok with Blender being open source and them always cleaning up bugs... I'm not killing myself yet.
I will keep your words in the back of my mind when seeking out employment.

You're welcome, I'm glad you found it helpful. =D I have a question though. If you want to be an animator, why are you trying to learn all of those programs? I dont know how to use Blender, AE, Cinema 4d (I dont even know what that one does) and I wouldn't know Flash if I hadn't been working on a friend's short film. You dont need to know how to use all of those programs. I think you should first focus on learning how to animate in general, since knowing how to use a program doesn't mean you can animate. Then I think you should find out which package is used predominantly by the area of the industry that you're interested in (features, vfx, games, tv, commercials) and learn how to animate in said package. =)

Yeah, sometimes I scratch my head at all the programs I'm trying to take on at once. I guess my philosophy to that is that the more I know-the bigger my tool box- the more doors will open. But I guess that way of thinking one can loose focus making you back track and not move forward.

I bet you got accepted to animate! Congrats and have fun. I checked out it and I'm so interested. I even already downloaded digicel flip book to check it out though it probably makes sense to have wacom of some sort. Do you use a drawing pad too then?
I'm a kinda a new mom right now and don't have money coming in or I would apply right now if I could. As soon as I get hired anywhere I'm going to apply. The workshops look like they will be just what I need-intense practice. Maybe someday you will teach perhaps?

So when you say you think I should learn to first animate do you mean pencil and paper? or are you taking like basic "flash"? Thanks for the advice.

That is my biggest problem is deciding what I really enjoy the most. Sometimes I think messing with color correction and just basic stuff with video/film and editing is really fun. Other times I really enjoy drawing sketching or cartooning. How to know or picking just one is tough. But I know I will get nowhere without a focus. I know.

Thanks! I'm really looking forward to getting started there. =D Yes, I have a tablet. It's not a Wacom though, its a cheap Vistablet. I didn't have the money for a Wacom when I bought it. Now I'm considering getting a cintiq. I'm not sure how often I'll actually use it though since I prefer drawing on paper. You'll want to have some sort of tablet for Flipbook though since its really difficult to draw with a mouse.

Congrats on becoming a mother!!!!! =D You must have your hands full, lol. I wish you lots of luck with the job search. =D Lol, I dont have any plans to teach. I dont have the patience for it. I tend to get annoyed when I have to keep explaining something because the person doesn't understand or isn't listening. XD

You can use whatever medium you like. I just mean learning how to actually do it. You can read some animation books and start out with the bouncing ball. You can do that in 2d, 3d, Flash, Flipbook or any other way you like. The important thing is learning the principles of animation and how to use them properly. Once you've got that you can move on to body mechanics and then acting.

I cant really give you much advice on deciding which aspect of the field you want to pursue. That's completely up to you. The only thing I can really say is to make sure you love it because you'll be doing whatever you pick everyday for 8-14 hours a day as a professional. Good luck! =D

Yea.. nor do I have the money for a wacom at the moment... I wonder if getting just a small size would do the the trick. Yes...I noticed that with flip book you need a pen tablet. I also like paper and pencil... but I have years of exploring to do.
I spent a lot of my 20's trying to play music in Los Angeles(burned me and my soul out)... and now I just graduated with a digital media degree which opened my interests elsewhere.

I just keep checking out animation books at the public library. I really like so many forms of animation that I'm never sure where to start. But I think my brain does a good job of taking what it wants and leaving out the rest. I'm conscience of drawing traditional animation styles. I don't want my characters to ever look like other people's work or most importantly styles that we always see. And I know that making characters that people are used to is probably where the money is at... but I'm such a huge fan of experimental animation.
I just watched a documentary of the artist "Jean-Michel Basquiat" which helped me to re-establish putting the "young" into art work. Or the "scribble"...

Thanks for giving me pointers about the levels I need to take in practicing this.
I have been asking myself the big questions.... and I really feel like I'm drawn to make animation in "commercials" where it's a mixed media thing or like right now in documentaries its been popular to implement real retro animation in between scenes. I would like to go that route... however I get there who knows... but alot of practice and freelancing first I think.

Thanks for you advice and taking the time to get back to me.
Peace~

Personally I never was a huge fan of 3D animation... I lean more toward 2D animations which in this are AWESOME O_O You do every well with a pencil and paper. Not to mention you do pretty darn good with a computer.

Thanks! I really want to do some more 2d animation but I don't have time. >_< I'm going to be doing some personal tests for my reel but they're going to be in 3d since that's the medium I'll be using at the studios I send it to. I also don't feel like my 2d animation is strong enough to carry its own weight reel wise which is another reason why I don't have much of it on my reel. Once I get to where I want to be job wise, I can dedicate more time purely to improving my traditional animation skills. =D
