My favorite thing as an actor is to become somebody else. That’s the fun part is to transform. My favorite performances in films tend to be the ones where you don’t see the actors on the screen, you see the characters in the story, you know? People like Daniel Day Lewis or Gary Oldman or Meryl Streep or Peter Sellars. These are people you don’t… you don’t see that actor, they just disappear and that’s what I always strive for.

I am so glad America is stuck with him now
It’s way more amusing towatch Gordon Ramsay make Americans cry than it is to watch him yell at people from the UK and for them to tut and sigh.
I fucking love him

What if they glow blue when orcs are near?
The whole film took me altogether about 5 grueling months (usually 10-12hours a day) to do. I often felt my butt was going to grow into the chair I usually sat at.
Please note that this was simply my way of doing my film to achieve the soft-shaded style I wanted; there are many other ways of doing this and some are a lot faster with different results~! :)
- My film on DeviantArt | My film on Vimeo
- My film gifs on Tumblr
- You can see my storyboard animatic here (although the original had music, but like I mentioned, my placeholder music was by Joe Hisaishi, you know, Miyazaki’s composer, so it’s not really legal to upload it).
This tut differs a bit from my dA version, because tumblr lets me put the combination of gifs and jpegs :D.
Here’s a book that will really help you start animating:
here’s some books that are good for composition, storytelling and colours:
- Dream Worlds: Production Design for Animation
- The Art of Pixar: The Complete Color Scripts and Select Art from 25 Years of Animation
- Prepare to Board! Creating Story and Characters for Animated Features and Shorts
I hope these helped
