Thread with fire demos for students
There are a lot of ways to stylize fire. You can simplify it with rising masses, you can track holes and edges
#2dfx #animation
The fire is rising because the hot particles and gas is lighter than air, this also creates air current that is pretty turbulent for bigger flames or if there's wind/lots of other stuff.
In closed room without wind a candle would be pretty static and won't move much. The smoke from it will rise pretty straight too and may start to curl quite far from the source. If you add wind you'll get the roll, flicker or more chaotic motion.

Storyboarding is hard.

Really, really, REALLY hard.

Twenty-Five years ago I went in for a job interview at Klasky Csupo for a character design gig and met with Mitch Watson - a producer for their new show, “The Wild Thornberrys”.

Wanted to share some tidbits of the anim/dev-process for Ramattra, now that he has been announced and shown to the world! Lots of talented people were involved in his development, I had the pleasure of working on his First Person Set #Overwatch #animation #gamedev 🧵1/18
One of the challenges with him is that he's basically two characters in one due to his shapeshifting abilities. It was decided early on that each "form" had to be very different from each other to have the desired impact. Hopefully that comes through when playing him. 🧵 2/18
As you can see in the clip above, each "form" has its own full set of animations for one normal character. It was a blast working out where we could push the differences and extreme between the forms, but it obviously added a lot to his dev- and iteration time. 🧵3/18

Walt Disney Feature Animation's Treasure Planet, written and directed by John Musker & Ron Clements (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Moana), was released 20 years ago today.

This 43rd Disney animated feature film is also one that my followers keep describing as "underrated"...
...every time I talk about it, proof that this movie is well-loved by those who haven't missed it. Yes, it had failed at the box office. But no more excuses: it's now available on Disney+!
It's never too late to board the R.L.S. Legacy (R.L.S.: Robert Louis Stevenson, author of Treasure Island, 1883), especially for its 20th anniversary.

🧵 The Global Tanaka Project – Update 3 🌎🌍🌏
This week's update shows a busier globe with a soothing score 🎶, more plane/ship activity, biomes and vegetation, landmarks, volcanoes, a moon and the ISS satellite! Details below... #map #animation #3d
Using data from… I wanted to create a distinct feel for each ecosystem – this needs work still and I need to source some better low-poly vegetation models but I think it helps to distinguish eco regions.
I love @SonjaKuijpers idea about adding volcanoes and so found some data for volcanoes ( via ArcGIS Online) with an ‘advisory’ or ‘watch’ threat level, otherwise there are too many! I need to get these animated and integrated properly…

CHAPTER 8 - Post Mortem

Let’s talk about pitching a cartoon show, shall we? Image
Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve tried to give you all of the practical information I have based on my experience on how to pitch a cartoon.

Not as easy as you thought, huh?

Everything I know came from trial-and-error on my part.

You will try.

You will error. Image
Don’t let it eat you up.

One of the major, emotional milestones I wish I had gotten over sooner is that - as corny as this sounds - life IS, in fact, all about the journey - not the destination. Image

CHAPTER 7 - “We’d like to see MORE!”

I’ve spent a lot of time preparing you for disappointment.

And rightfully so. The odds are undeniably stacked against you.

But - let’s say you pitched your show, everything went great, and a couple of weeks later, you get the call everyone hopes for:

“We’re interested.” Image

CHAPTER 6 - Follow up

Let’s talk about pitching a cartoon show, shall we?

So... you’ve pitched your cartoon!
Congrats! Image
In many cases, you’ll have a pretty good idea what your chances look like within the first 120 seconds of your pitch.

By the time you speak the title of the show and first paragraph of your pitch, you’ll probably be able to see it on their faces. Image
Anything other than a “I love this idea!” and you’re looking at a “maybe” at best. “Interesting” is often code for “no.”

But, as I stated previously, you’re not just pitching a cartoon, you’re pitching yourself… so you need to maintain your composure no matter what. Image

1) This is a thread to track my journey through the #tezos universe and I'll update it every time I add a new piece to the pickle jar! This is a PURE art 🧵
2) This piece is literally called "#2" and was my first purchase in the #Tezos ecosystem. I scooped it off @objktcom because it reminds me of these abstract wooden clown sculptures my grandmother had when she was alive. Spooks the hell outta me but I love it 😂

Artist: @Tlapz01 Image

This piece kicked off my obsession with loops and animated trippy horror shows. LOVE THE EYES. If you're tired, change the colors ;).

CHAPTER 3: NOW what?! Image
Good lord - after ALL THAT you’re still here?!

You’re a glutton for punishment, huh? Well… good… because if you’re going to pitch your cartoon ideas, you’ve gotta love getting punched in the gut.

And get punched in the gut you most certainly WILL! Image
Unless you’re one of those assholes who just comes up with something exceedingly brilliant and gets a fantastic development deal your first time around. In which case, the rest of us will sit here smiling and trying to make our “congratulations” seem sincere.

But I digress. Image

You can’t.

NEXT INSTALLMENT - How to deal with disappointment! Image
Okay, okay… just kidding. Except… well… not really.

No matter how great your cartoon idea is, sometimes it’s simply “Not the right time” or “not the right fit” for whatever entity you’re pitching to. Image

Let’s talk about pitching a cartoon show, shall we?

One of the things about animation that a lot of people find frustrating is that it often becomes a “nexus” where CREATIVITY, COLLABORATION and COMMERCE are uncomfortably merged. Image
This phenomenon can create a lot of challenges and struggles. Obviously, as with all things, sometimes the stars align just perfectly and it all happens with flawless precision, but those instances are VERY few and VERY far between. Image

Let’s talk about pitching a cartoon show, shall we? Image
Before we get started, let me sort of lay down how this is all going to happen.
I’m gonna do my best to give you some perspective on how to go about pitching and/or selling your original ideas to a network or media platform based on MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE. Image
Why do I put those words in BOLD CAPS, you ask? Because my experiences are unique, personal and potentially outdated. I haven’t REALLY “pitched” anything in over a decade - and that should tell you something right there. Image

‘Baymax!’ Is Just A Bunch Of Patronizing Public Service Announcements😴

Woke as it is brain-dead
‘Baymax!’ has all the subtlety of a low B-episode of Captain Planet & storytelling as deep as an evaporated puddle 🫧… @FDRLST #baymax #disney #mcu #marvel #rt
Disney doesn't seem to know its audience & lets progressive platitudes blind itself to releasing expensive shows that are only so-so

W/ some the wokeness turns them off immediately, but there isnt a lot here for progressives either… #tv #film #filmtwitter
