Interview with “Toy Story 3” animators and story supervisor

Postby Charles » Wed Jun 16, 2010 12:44 pm

The "MakingOf" blog informed us of a post where the supervising animators of "Toy Story 3" (Bobby Podesta and Mike Venturini) and story supervisor (Jason Katz) of "Toy Story 3" talk about revisiting characters and introducing new ones from an animators perspective.

A really interesting part of the interview was when they were talking about having to simplify the animation to make the toys look like toys and not have human like mannerisms: “So you have to think about that, you know, his joints are solid, he’s plastic, there’s dirt in there. You have to take the polish out. So we had to train ourselves to really simplify a lot of the work that we had been used to doing in the past. That was a big thing: exercising restraint and that was a challenge for a lot of our animators.”

They also talk about the previous “Toy Story” movies and how they think they have improved. Its a really cool interview if you are into animation.
