Today the 2nd and 3rd year animation students had a Master Class, which means we come in on a Saturday from 10a.m. until usually around 4-5p.m. and listen to guest speakers teach us additional information about animating. This time the guest speaker was one Davide Benvenuti, who's animated animal locomotion in everything from Lion King 2 to Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron and now works at Ubisoft, Singapore. These were the notes I took on the six-hour session, uploaded for my classmates who couldn't draw fast enough.
Still think it's easy animating?
