Link: A close look at BAD ACTING and GOOD ACTING

A short post from me, it’s been crazy busy at work, and I rarely get much coherency for my own work these days. Anyways!

A very well put-together post by Daniel Gonzales, on the subject of acting in film, which has a huge amount of reference & study material for animators.
A close look at BAD ACTING and GOOD ACTING

Tons of video examples of each of the points, along with the theory on why it works so well (or why it goes so badly) – even if you’re not an animator yourself, anyone that appreciates film would enjoy this blog post.

Speaking of animation, I am very very slowly working my way towards my next animation project – I want to focus on character acting with dialogue to better sharpen my skillset. I’ll document more of my process, as per request by some of you out there, and keep y’all posted.

Learning from Film: The Art of Editing in The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

Came across this a while back, and I finally got around to making a proper post to share this excellent breakdown of the composition, editing and cohesive storytelling that is present in one of my favorite influential films – Sergio Leone’s The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

That score from the composer Ennio Morricone, “The Ecstasy of Gold” (Italian: L’Estasi dell’Oro), during the frantic search of the cemetery… Absolutely haunting.

Link: Flooby Nooby’s The Cinematography of Pixar’s The Incredibles

Pixar’s The Incredibles is one of my favorite animated movies, and this post is an extremely straight-forward and valuable breakdown of the cinematography involved. From live-action to animated to comics, the composition of each image (be it moving or static) is essential to know for every visual medium.
Yes, rules are made to be broken, but you can’t break a rule effectively if you have no idea what the rules are in the first place. Also, breaking a rule is only effective if it actually has an impact, which best arises as contrast to the other UNBROKEN rules. If all the rules are broken, then it’s just a directionless mess.
