Some of the best and most useful examples of animation from my childhood

In the clip has to be some of the best heavy lifting and posture animation I have seen, the lines are fantastic as well as the great squash and stretch in the character, and its Goofy possibly one of my favourite characters of all time.The scene where he struggles to carry the package is spot on and the weight lifting is priceless.

I first saw this clip along with many more on a Goofy all star Olympic video that I got when I was a kid (which I still own). This gem covers many different sporting activities and history of the sport, which are great for reference and it just shows how comical animation works with the focus just on one single character for 45minutes.

If you ever get the chance check out some of the Olympic footage on youtube you won't be disappointed and may even find use for them in your current work. As we know the principal of animation stays the same from 2D to 3D and who best to study than Disney's finest.

Ianimate Workshop 1

I am so excited to say that I have been accepted in to Ianimate's workshop 1, I know it is going to be full on especially for a newbie like me, but I have to say I haven't been this excited in along time. I can't wait to meet fellow students and create a much richer connection with the online animation community, which I can see is such an important role in today's animation world if not the most.

See you out there in the digital world and beyond.

Bouncy bouncy

Here are some of my animated bouncing balls to help become more familiar with Maya's animation tools, the last scene is only rough and I accidentally deleted the squash and stretch tool somewhere along the workflow and could not retrieve it, but I will start a fresh one with all tools intact.

Any comments and critique to help me improve these or my future attempts would be greatly appreciated

Thanks for watching
