Animation Time! - Brute Rig

Today's Inspiration:
“Animation is very slow. When you’re an actor, you depend on spontaneity in a scene
and it’s hard to work up spontaneity when you’re doing separate drawings.
The faster you work, the more spontaneity, and that was one of the secrets of the early
Ferguson animation drawings. He could draw almost as fast as he could think.”

“I thought Pinocchio was harder for everybody than Snow White. We finished Snow White and we said
‘Ha. We can do features!’ And everybody went into Pinocchio with this great load of confidence.
Boy, six months later we found out, and Walt found out,
that what you learn in one picture doesn’t necessarily work in the next picture.”
