: 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)
Thank you Andreas. A very nice offer. Yes it is quite a change and it is like learning to use different parts of yourself. Honestly I wasn't trying to flame anyone, just explain that it is like learning a new language. Some make the transition easier than others. Cool. So long.
