    @Michael Lake starting out and doing your own thing is easy once you get the general idea of how it’s done and yes learning new techniques can get a bit tricky, but what pushes me is seeing how good and smooth animation looks afterwords. That is what makes it fun

    It always blows me away when I actually watch the movies and think that they are made like this... slowly by hand.

  • Jamie Morgan


    You cant even tell when you watch the movie, it just looks computer generated.

    I got so much respect for these guys. I can't even get myself to animate frame by frame in Maya, even with keyframes, tween , blendshapes, hair and cloth simulations etc sometimes even 10 to 15 seconds would take a whole day or more and you only have to focus on one or 2 things at a time and not the entire movement as a whole. The level of dedication and patience they have is insane.

    I'm currently making an animation and it takes about an hour just to make a 1:00 animation
