There have been lots of animation legends over the years, but the creations designed by Walt Disney and his company stand the test of time. Have you ever wondered how they do the magic that they do? Now you can find out yourself.
Alan Becker is an animator himself, and being inspired by the legendary Disney animators Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, he decided to put together a series of videos that show the 12 principles of animation. It’s a how-to guide showing you (quite literally) how to create the magic that Johnston and Thomas did for years with Disney, and it’s awesome.
We’ve included the first few videos here, but feel free to check out Becker’s YouTube playlist for the rest.
