Eric Goldberg: animated Rolo Ad

AKIRA: Pencil Tests!

Got a great email which linked me to CATSUKA which always has some great animation reels from Japan, Korea, and all over. One of my favorite Japanese Anime movies is AKIRA...which I am sure most people who probably come to this site have seen it and were also blown away. This is one of the videos but I have supplied the link where you can see them all!

Bruce Smith on Creating Dr Facilier

Bruce Smith is on of my favorite animators and having access to him is one of the giant bonuses of working at Disney. I found this clip where he discusses how he came up with the look and movement for the villain of Princess and the Frog; Dr Facilier. This is not a pencil test, but I thought it fit in very nicely to the site. We all love animation and the skill it takes to create it, so hearing a little more insight always inspires those of us who are animators, aspiring animators, and people love it in general.
