The Chestnut Tree

Today I was talking to Brian about short films and the way that they do it over at CalArts. He showed me this little short that was really cute. Notice how well it is done with some shots hardly using any backgrounds. He gave me some great advice telling me that if you really want to focus on animation do not get caught up in doing layouts and backgrounds, its good to know but don't get caught up in it if you want to focus in something else. Focus on the acting and the characters if animation is what you want to do. He was saying that he has seen a lot of students who get so wrapped up in backgrounds when they really want to be an animator.

Note to self....
