BEIJING. Here are a few photos from today's class exercise in blocking and character action. I ask the students to visualize the movements of their characters and to set up their blocking in the two- and three-dimensional area of the frame. Since animation is not profilmic, this helps them to visualize their characters' activities in a storyboard. The storyboard then becomes the animatic. Fun stuff on a Friday, especially when the weather has been as nice as it has lately in Beijing.
