Form vs. Force

A. Film‘s Hans Perk posted today about animating forms vs. forces, a transcription of a 1937 Don Graham class looking at Bill Tytla’s animation style. Animating forms is the easiest approach when coming from traditional drawing, but even a series of well-rendered images lacks impact unless the force behind the movements is animated. Tytla was one of the first to animate starting from the force of an action, not the form it took. Interesting read—and if you like it, post a comment at A. Film L.A. so that Hans Perk knows people appreciate the work he does to post these!
