STRAIGHT AHEAD VS POSE TO POSE ANIMATION
......
INBETWEENS FOR TENSION, REALISM and FUN
...If you can use principles, yet escape specific formulae, I.E. "This is the correct way to draw an antic, or a certain of the 5 expressions in animation" and you can actually draw what you feel, rather than what Frank Thomas or some modern cartoon designer feels, then a whole new world of both realistic and cartoony creativity opens up to you....

Hey John. I'm holding a workshop on animation at the local (small) Film festival. It's kinda interesting that you'll be talking about this in your blog (i'll also tell the kids to go read this thing, as it's a great place for info), as i plan to tell the kids about pose to pose vs. straight ahead as well as combining them. I hope to read the entry before the weekend, so i can get some pointers :)

I remember you talking about building tension with a Ranger Smith post. I'll wait to find out, but is it like morphing from one pose to another; or can you add in several new poses in that process?

So I'm not sure I'm reading this right. Pose to pose means when you do all the major poses and then go back and do tweening? And straight ahead means you do each frame from start to finish in order?

John, while working in animation in the 80's, did you met a guy named Alvaro Arce?

I think pose-to-pose means "Lord grant me a creative animator", and straight ahead means "Lord help me find the means to get out of this jam by myself."
