Bruce Smith & Team: Pacha from Emperors New Groove


I had a few moments to re read the emails (between unpacking) and view the links people I have sent. I have replied to them all but I cant figure out why they are getting kicked back. Anyway one link was this collection of Pacha animation. Bruce Smith was the supervising animator of Pacha so I am sure this a collection of his work and the guys/gals who worked with him. Bruce is definitely one of my favorite animators and one of the reasons why I am still animating to this day. I was hoping to gets some clearer versions of is work, but this is a great start. Thanks again for the donation!

oh and thank you guys for the support.

I wish these things were always in Quicktime so one could scrub thru them frame-by-frame. It's hard to analyze when it's rushing by.

I have noticed that many people have asked for the clips to be placed in quicktime format. In an effort to respect my colleagues and the animators on the site, I would want to leave the mass distribution of work up to the people who have created the animation. Some of these clips are on Youtube as well as other sites. I appreciate the donations and we will continue to show the respect and appreciation for the animators that are posted on this site. I hope that everyone understands and can continue to enjoy the work here.

all the best

I really admire what you have done with this blog. Such great incentive and inspiration. I agree I would like to see more of Bruce's work (amongst others) in clearer versions possibly even scans of key drawings. His work on Kerchak from Tarzan was amazing and there's not enough of it online!!

Keep up the great work

Bruce Smith where ever you are, you rock man. Your work has inspired this generation of animators, and many more to come. All the best!

Thanks for all the great comments. Pacha was a fun assignment.
Footnote: Although I supervised the character in all the scenes my actual animation is in last five or six scenes of this reel.

Bruce is quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite animators. His work on Kerchak from Tarzan was the first time I really sat up and took notice at his level of talent. Of course, Dr. Facilier (aka, "the shadow man") from Princess and the Frog both stole the show & took the cake! Keep up the great work, Mr. Smith, you are an inspiration!
