Here are my notes I have been taking from this book “Acting for Animators”. The book gives a really good insight into the similarities and differences between actors and animators, and how animators can can learn how to effectively create a character with emotion, by taking on board some acting techniques into their work. The book also emphasizes on the importance of creating empathy for your characters. It is the essence of the animation and will fail without it. It also touches on a few other topics such as the importance of comedy and reinforced what we had been learning in class about power centres and body posture.
