Weekly Post #3- Interesting Animation Techniques

Part #3 of a 5 part blog series, uploaded once a week, where I:

  • Share 3 Songs
  • Write a short article about animation
  • Ask 3 questions
  • Share 5 images
  • Share 5 sakuga clips

So, the bi-daily blog post idea didn’t work out. Other work caught up with me and I realised that writing a post every 2 days isn’t realistic for me just now. Part of the reason I started these regular posts was to get a feel of what I’m able to do on this blog so I’ve decided to make this series come out once a week instead of every two days.

This week’s post is a bit shorter, it’s mostly an add-on to the last article. I’d only planned to write a couple hundred words for these and the last one I did was 3000 so I have to tone it down a bit.

But either way enjoy, and hopefully the extra song, images and clips will make up for a shorter article.

Weekly Post #2- Akira & The Principles Of Animation

Post #2 in a 5 part blog series, uploaded every week (previously every 2 days), where I:

  • Share 3 Songs
  • Write a short article about animation or the animation community
  • Ask 3 questions
  • Share 5 images
  • Share 5 sakuga clips

I’ve realised a few things since Sunday. For one, bi-daily doesn’t mean what I thought it meant. It means twice a day, not once every 2 days. But it sounds right so I’ll keep the name lol. Also the number of clips/songs/images I share is a rough number, I’ll add more on some days.

The article today is long, well over the limit I gave myself. It has a pretty in depth analysis of a sequence in Akira and a discussion about how relevant the 12 principles of animation are when analysing great animation.

Enjoy!
