Happy New Year


I hope everyone had a great New Year. We hope this year will be a good year for animation and the Spline Doctors Blog. This year we will have a new site with new articles and lots of new Spline Casts. We really want you to post who you want to be interviewed. Also, please send us any topics of interest you want to see on the blog.

Happy New Year.

Andrew

Carter Goodrich, Lou Romano, Ricky Nierva, Harley Jessup, Bud Luckey, Gary Rydstrom, Greg Dykstra, Jerome Ranft, Jason Deamer, Pete Sohn, Teddy Newton, and of course, the man himself, John Lasseter!

I think it would interesting to get newbie/fresh animators that just got hired and get them on here... kind of twist it up a bit.

I'm enjoying the site and trust you will get some great articles on character driven animation. However I am interested in the world physics animation as well. Water (Getting it to behave on cue), thrown objects, wind, prop interaction etc. How close do you aim for realistic physics? When do you feel its appropriate to ham it up.

In addition to the great names already mentioned, I'll add story artists Ronnie del Carmen & Enrico Casarosa; the infamous "Spaniards" Brad Bird always talks about doing the tougher shots for The Incredibles; Bob Peterson; and a second vote for John Lasseter!

A spline cast with Mike Stocker would be cool :O)

I'd love to learn more about your in-house tools, especially Menv. Anyone from the programming/tools side of things would be fascinating, IMO.

Someone from character design would be great. I'm a big fan of Jason Deamer's work.

If you could get Bud Luckey, that would be truly amazing. I aspire to be as creatively active as he is when I'm in my 70s.

And if you interviewed John Lasseter, well... my head just might explode.

Please, keep up the great work!

Hey in addition to interviews with Animators, id also enjoy simple things such as what you like to do at Pixar on your free time specifically. For example if you have any specific "spots" at pixar you like, or you like to play the video games at the lounge.

I agree with that. I would like to hear about "the life at Pixar". Like "a day at Pixar" from morning till evening.

I would love it if you talked a bit about how the artist like to work and what their work habits are, like when Ralph Eggleston said he listened to a specific music for Finding Nemo.

thanks for the great work.

as far as subjects for posts, here are a few ideas,

-Curves, what are they, how to use them to commnicate character emotions or physical attribute like weight.

-Perfection vs. Imperfection, should character animation be always perfect as far as arcs, slow in/slow outs, etc., or in an effort to make it more lifelike, one should build in a few imperfection?

-Force, internal and external


thanks

As a budding animator starting Animation Mentor, I second a vote to hear from some of the young animators and their experience at Pixar and tips on ehancing an animation career.

How about interviewing someone out on the fringe like Bill Plympton or Ralph Bakshi? I know they're not CG but I'm sure they have something interesting to say.

I'm going to vote for more round-table splinecasts. But I also like alot of the other ideas listed, looks like there will be some interesting interviews in the future.

John Lasseter would be amazing! id love to hear a brain trust roundatble too. hey, we can dream cant we?!

Here's a link to a Glen Keane interview:

Pretty cool stuff.

Back to the question at hand, I'd love to hear Lasseter and, what the hell, another Brad Bird interview! This time, delve into the whole story, story, story thing... oh yeah, and, um, story. That would be amazingly awesome!

Thanks for all the inspirational material you've provided thus far and the inspirational material that's sure to come!

Pete Sohn would be a great one! Considering he works in story, art, and animation.

Brad Bird once again would be nice. or John Lasseter himself. or both!

Thanks for all the Great Suggestions. At this point, most of the folks I get will be local to Pixar.

I would love an interview with Andrew Stanton, after the release of WALL-E.

Just want to say that what you are doing is (~cant be put into words~).... well amazing.

I don't know how many animators you have inspired by these podcasts, but it would be a large number.

Even more amazing is that, you guys are producing these for free.

Keep them coming!

An (3hour) interview with Tony Fucile would be awesome.

Hi Guys I dunno if you'll still see this, but I would love to know more about your workflow from stepped to splines, but just before that though, whether you block out breakdowns on all controllers or just the ones that are leading the action, etc. say like moving holds, do you block out moving holds before you spline? and do you make an exact duplicate of the pose before or 'work out' your moving hold in the blocking already. Sweet, hi to everyone and thanks, David!!
