well i caught a bit of the making of chicken little this morning. was 8am and i was sleepy but when i saw them drawing keys on the screen for the animators to follow, that pretty much woke me up.
the gentleman on the screen said since Disney has its heritage in hand drawn animation a lot of the crew can do it and they use that as a guideline for a lot of the animation. then he went into bits of stretch, squash, follow through etc. but it was quite interesting. i didnt think they would be doing this.
anyone else seen this? or know of it?
Hardware : The screens they were using were quite nifty. kinda like tablet PC's but much much bigger and they were doin the 2d bits directly on it as well as using them as monitors. Quite sweet, unlike the cintiqs these arent secondary.
