Animation Mentor - How a film is produced
Animators can benefit by seeing the process that other animators work through to produce a final piece of animation.
The Animation Mentor You Tube channel has student work that shows how they got from an idea for an animation to the final product.
It includes steps that the second year animators are aware of: design, layouts, storyboard, animatic, at this point the AM students to a 'pitch', video reference = ACT IT OUT and film it, blocking out the poses in 3D, animating, polishing and presentation of the final film.
What I like about this film is that it is a simple concept that allowed the student to focus on the animation. Keep It Simple.
