Speaking of Animation

I recently stumbled across a new (to me) blog called Speaking of Animation, which has some really good information and podcasts.  I particularly like these two articles about specificty in character, which I often preach to my students about:

Specificity in Character Part 1
Specificity in Character Part 2

I feel specificity is key to pushing your performances the next level.  Start by knowing your character's history and the context of your scene in a bigger story.  Then add costumes, props, and environments to your scenes to provide the audience with more details about your character, and provide yourself with more interesting and specific acting choices.


  1. Cool i did not know they even had stuff posted besides the podcasts.

    I also stumbled across the 11 sec club postings that has some gold too, their "Helpful Hints" Still trying to go through them and not done.


  2. Thanks for introducing me to Speaking of Animation! Really great articles/podcasts!
