    Any examples of solo amateur short or even series?

    See title...basically any solo animator that managed to make a short or series that you liked? (It can be very rough and not that great technically, as long as it managed to depict a story that works)

    I start animation classes this fall, how can I start practicing?

    Hi I’m starting college this fall as an animation major. i’m not asking for any input about whether it’s worth it to go to school for animation, i’m going, i’m happy with going, im actually getting paid to go so anyways just don’t want any input on that. I’ve taken 12 years of art classes, and i’m confident in my passion for art , but I have never been one to draw characters, is that something I should practice? and how can I practice that, should I just try to copy from pictures of animated characters? I definitely don’t think i’m currently capable of brainstorming my own characters, so how can I get to that point? Any tips or advice on what I should practice and how to prepare myself would be greatly appreciated!!

    Flip a clip animations exporting at higher frame rate than project setting.

    Title. Whenever I export an animation the reported frame rate in the "movie" tab is one or two fps higher than the fps I set it at while making the project. Couldn't find anything online so I'm asking here.

    (VANAS) Vancouver Animation School?

    Does anyone have any information on this school? I was just accepted with a small scholarship into there 1 year 2D program. From everything I can find it seems legit but there's hardly any information about the school apart from what's on their website. I'm a bit hesitant because it feels like getting in was a little too easy? Also slight red flag that I can barely find any reviews for it. If anyone has attended or knows anything about it, please share your experience!

    Looking for professional critique

    Hi, hopefully this video posts correctly.

    I’m looking for some critique on this dialogue piece. I’ve worked in 2D animation a long time, and I am trying to transition to 3D. What I’m looking for is any advice or suggestions to take this piece of animation to a professional level. Any and all critique is welcome, but I would really love to hear any ways I could bring this up in quality to a minimum level of professionalism.

    Side note: if anyone can tell me why the eyes have no pupils, that would be a huge help as well.

    A little animation I am working on.

    I know my drawing skills aren't the best but this is my attempt at making a drop of gasoline (petrol for you European folks) drop into a puddle of itself. Slowed down to ten frames to be able to be uploaded.

    Do you consider ragdolls a form of animation, or because it's generated do they fall into a different category?

    Can we talk about how insanely overlooked Smallfoot is?

    For those unaware, Smallfoot is a 2018 animated movie about a tribe of Yeti living in the Himalayas who meet a human after thinking they were just a myth. And while it may just look like your run of a mill kids movie, it's actually a pretty decent flick. It has an appealing art style (though the lack of space between eyes on the humans is kinda weird), enjoyable voice acting, and some pretty deep themes about prejudice and society. Also, it has a villain song that is legit INCREDIBLE to listen to. I'm not joking, "Let It Lie" is up there with the classic Disney villain songs, even though the Stonekeeper is only protecting his village and isn't that much of a villain. Common knocked it out of the park with his performance. Smallfoot's not a masterpiece or anything, but it frustrates me how barely anyone remember it since it's got some really good stuff in it.

    please help me find these short animated films

    I'm trying to find 2 animated short films on youtube, I think they might've been deleted bc I can't find it for the life of me. The first one had an opening scene of this girl with pig tails brushing her teeth, and then she went in her kitchen, pull out a pack of sth that looks like soba noodles (the black noodles from japan), mash them up in a bowl and put them in a machine that made these fillings for stuff animals, apparently these are illegal? bc 3 police showed up and start looking through her house, I remember a scene where she was watching tv and eating these chips that look like pills and she had a really dead look in her eyes. Also the second short film is about a ghost that just randomly appeared in this woman's appartment and the ghost cooked, cleaned and took care of her. They started living together and the ghost kinda helped her improve herself, but it was all a dream

    Please help me find these two animation film i love them so much
