Film reference for Animation - Zootopia shots


Here is the video link: http://animatedbuzz.com/videos/view/730/zootopia-shots-fun-cartoony

I had a great time animating these shots especially the second one hahaha. The sound effect they chose is awesome. I started to experiment with using live action reference around this time on #zootopia and so I found that it was extremely useful with getting ideas down and blocked quickly. I also found that it allows you to try a bunch of different #acting choices out without much time spent on them. The downside to reference is that if you follow it too closely, you lose that fun sense of #caricature and life. So its definitely a balancing act trying to figure out how closely to follow it. I find that most animators will use it for an initial blocking pass but then throw the reference out immediately afterwards. Thats generally how I try going about it. Its not as helpful for super cartoony shots but i still used some reference for that second shot just for research and idea generation. I took footage of my arm flailing for the trunk which helped me get a decent starting point. #zootopiadisney .
