Upcoming animation events

Hi All, I will be speaking at a couple of Bay Area events in the next few weeks. 

First off, the Animation Collaborative's Bay Area Creative Connection (BACC), hosted at the fabulous Disney Family Museum in San Francisco.  The event is this Saturday, March 11, and is open to the public.  There will be many talented animators there giving lectures and workshops, and reviewing demo reels.  I'll be giving a talk on "Sincerity - the importance of truthful acting in animation"

The following weekend (March 18 & 19) I will be at the AOD Animation Festival in Santa Clara.  I'll be giving the same "Sincerity" talk from BACC on Saturday, and I'll be in a Q&A on Sunday.

Hope to see you there!

Scott Eaton's "Bodies In Motion" web site

This Monday the 16th will see the unveiling of the new Bodies In Motion, a web site providing human anatomy reference for artists, animators, and modelers.  The content has been created and curated by Scott Eaton, renowned artist and teacher of anatomy.  I've had the pleasure of beta-testing the site for a month or two now, and I can tell you that it's fun to explore and contains a wealth of reference material.  Check it out!

On a side note, I haven't been posting much to this blog, but I have been focusing more on my 2d artwork, and I'm posting to Instagram pretty regularly.  If you're interested, you can find me at @victornavone

Spots still open for Animation Collaborative Winter 2017 classes


http://www.animationcollaborative.com/

The next session of Animation Collaborative starts in 3 weeks, and there are still some spots available in my Advanced Animation course.

There is also a new Animation Mini Film course, taught by my buddy Matt Majers, that has plenty of open spots.  It should be a fun curriculum, and will make a great addition to your reel!

You can register for classes here.

Happy New Year!

CTN Time!

Hi All,
As usual I'll be attending the annual CTN Expo in Burbank next weekend, and this time I'll have the honor of representing Pixar.  I'll be giving a talk about our animation of "Inside Out" on Saturday morning, and I'll probably pop up at the Pixar recruiting booth and other places.  I'm looking forward to meeting up with old friends and students, and scoring some great art and books in the exhibit hall.  Hope to see you there!
