Lessons learned from Eric Goldberg

One of the modern day greats of animation, Eric Goldberg is seen in this video discussing his feelings about what's missing in both CGI and hand drawn animation. There's much to learn by listening to what he has to say.

The location looks to me to be the Burbank Marriott, and judging from the date of the upload, I'm guessing this is at CTNX 2009, the first CTN eXpo.

A couple more videos of Eric Golberg at lasy year's (2009) CTNX in Burbank, hanging out at the Marriot, discussing how he approaches his animation.

Here he discusses how he charts his animation, favoring the importance of each drawing over how he spaces the drawings.




And here, he discusses pose to pose animation, and how it's beneficial even in CGI.
