Animation Tests - Football Kick

Its been quite a while since i flexed my anim-brain on some body mechanics. So i thought it will be a good time to do it now, since i am comparatively less occupied.

Here is the first one, i do intend to keep doing these on a regular basis.

Feedback/suggestions/tips/critiques are most welcome, just one request, don't pull any punches back, the more you rip me apart, the stronger i hope to become !

37 Mins Of Andrew Stanton In An Interview

Came to know about this delightful interview from Upcoming Pixar Blog

As on the Upcoming Pixar Blog - 

"This lenghty but engaging interview has everything from Toy Story talk, to WALL•E tidbits, aswell as Stanton’s views of the awards season and the film/animation industry. He even talks about his mini vacations and reveals that it’s been about a year of him working on John Carter of Mars and that shooting should start early in 2010." 

Its indeed a must watch video for anyone interested in Pixar, Animation or even film-making in general and looking for some inspiration. 


Enjoy !
