hmmmm...... happy to stirred up some discussion, unhappy to heart somebodys feeling.
Let me try to make my points clear. I am traditionally trained myselfe. I can
sympathise to most of the arguments I have read.
Its a hart step to switch from hand to computer at the beginning.
The one is basically rubber and paper and direct communication over the pen,
the other is a clumsy plastic mouse and a cool shiny screen.
Feels more like a wall between you and your emotions. OK
But I found out that it has the same basic concepts.
It is about refeeling and acting out. It is as I said timing and emotion. It is character and it is much more.
For me it is a journey in an new art form which hasnīt really started right now.
Think about the discussion the early animators had to face.
Think about rubberhands and sweetboxing. Think about the problems the disney studios had at the beginning
to get traditionally trained artist in their production.
Is it a art form or not. Yes it was then and is in the case of computeranimation now.
It is art, although a very rough and crude one, couse it is so young.
But it has the possibilities to evolve. There are news wayes and principles to find, and it needs all the talent,
experience and nuturing of the traditional animators it can get.
If it would be possible I would like to show each of you what what drives me.
(and if you ever come to Berlin feel free to stop by, (you can stay at my place))
Maybe I can stirr same sparks
and yes traditional animation have my respect and sympathy for the work they are doing.
(and highest adoration for most i have seen)
