Back to the Basics

As we all know, its hard to get into the industry. But its even harder if we don't have animation reels. So the next few weeks are going to be focused on getting some reel worthy material ready (doesn't mean rendered. Take a look at some reels online. Most of the best ones look like playblasts). If you haven't heard of Animation Mentor, go to their website now (www.animationmentor.com) and get motivated. They post their work up so we are just going to utilize the exercises they go through to strengthen our own animation skills. So, since we are starting our reel journey, why not start at the beginning again. The infamous bouncing ball. But not just any bouncy ball. Varying bouncy balls. Not sure what I mean?

So we will be using 2 separate balls here, one light and one heavy. This shouldn't be that hard so don't take forever putting it up, people. The faster we all go on this, the more we can cover to get some reel-worthy material going. That way, during the demo reel weeks at school, we can finesse and not have to worry about starting from the beginning. Good Luck to you! -Post Below
