Acting Notes for Animators

I saw these notes the other day and found that some of them applied to animation. Despite being directed toward live action actors - many of the sample principles and directions apply to the animation industry. Most of the notes are common sense but it's always good to brush up on the basics. You might find a few nuggets of gold in there as well!

I took the liberty of editing these notes down to the pure meat so some sections might be out of order:

These are good tips to read over. I always have issues with "acting" when it comes to characters in my animations. Guess that's what practice is for, right?

Ya, it's all about the acting! First comes acting/performance then animation! And as animators we can't practice acting enough!
