The Return of Goofy

Looks like Disney Animation will start making 2D shorts again in the classic style! The first out will be "How to Hook Up Your Home Theater" starring Goofy. There are some heavy-hitter animators on board for this one, including Eric Goldberg, Andreas Deja and Mark Henn. I had the privelege of seeing the story reels at Pixar and I can tell you that it's hilarious! I'm looking forward to a return to form for Disney Animation! Read more about the short on AnimatedViews.com.

Yeah, it's been a while

Things have been crazy at the old Navone homestead. We had another baby and lots of visiting in-laws. Work was crazy, and I'm still teaching. So that's why I haven't posted anything in about a MONTH. Sorry for lagging!

In the meantime, here's an interesting resource for facial expressions: ARTNATOMY. It's a bit academic, but I think it's valuable for artists and animators to familiarize themselves with facial anatomy, and this site presents the information in an interesting and interactive way.
