I am in the midst of my *final* Hell Week. Then I get a vacation.
Yipee for me!
So since I’m going to be quite strapped for time and content, you get a little potpourri of things in this post.
First off, if you read the comments you may have seen one from Toronto storyboard artist Dan Milligan. Go to his site and look at his stuff (for you geeks, he worked on the movie ‘300’).
Very cool indeed.
He also added a link to an interview he did on the site CG Channel. Some good reading from a pro in the film and advertising industry, so check it out here:
(UPDATE: That link doesn’t work anymore. Sorry!)
Next, I plan on doing some posts about dealing with dialogue. I just don’t have the time right now and probably won’t for a few weeks (that vacation thing). But I did come across a post on Carlos Baena’s blog that touched on this.
He’s an animator at Pixar and one of the founders of Animation Mentor (I don’t know him and he certainly doesn’t know me). He gives some great insights and tips for animators on his site.
I can’t seem to link to just that post, but check out the June 1st entry entitled ‘Internal/External Dialogue‘. It shouldn’t be too far from the top. Poke around that site if you’re an animator. He’s got a good book resource section too.
UPDATE: If you go to his site you might very well see a post about this blog! I’ve told him privately and now I’ll tell him publicly: Thank you Carlos…you rock!
And finally just for fun, here’s the superb video “Take On Me” by A-Ha.
Why not? It’s one of the best videos ever and starts off all ‘storyboard-ish’. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love it.
Ahh, the eighties…(hey, I told you I’m old). Enjoy and I’ll see ya before the big ‘vacances’.
