The Hospital Challenge - 02 Jan 2010
The current challenge here at The Animator's Club is to create a soundtrack using household utensils and appliances. This is not exactly something expected of an Animator or a Composer ...otherwise it wouldn't be a challenge now would it!

To set a theme we have chosen Rob Shilo's hospital image. The items you may record can be anything you find lying around the house. The purpose of this task is to try something different and maybe pickup some new skills rather than depending on other resources. For more information jump over to our forum.

Animation Principles - 02 Jan 2010
in Animation there are certain principles that all animator's should follow in order for their work to look good. We will list one principle each week over in our forum and try to explain them as clear as possible. The principles are in place to give animation the feel that it is behaving like real world physics. Following the principles will help bring your animations to life and become more appealing.
