Eric Goldberg fixes New Animation – TIPS!

Eric Goldberg has some electrifying words of truth for all contemporary animators. Simply put, animation is missing expressive posing. But don’t fret! Following the poison of his truth comes the antidote of legendary tips.

 

The usual process is: Idea, shooting reference, blocking, splining, and polish. 

Goldberg’s process is : Idea, pre-timing, reference (maybe), etc.

Most contemporary animators create their timing throughout the blocking and splining stages. DON’T DO THIS PEOPLE.

Instead, predict the time it’ll take to perform each step of your animation while it’s still an idea (pre-timing).

Don’t destroy your expressive poses by animating one limb at a time.
