All of those who are in training should read this article and there is one clip that you must see. This article is an interview with the November 2009 winner of the 11 Second Club contest. The clip that you should see is the animator acting out the 11 seconds of audio. If any of you in training are not doing something like this, I think this article and the clip might persuade you to start. The clip is titled Power TV Promo Video Reference.
I would not mind seeing clips from all the animators here. :)
