Peter Kelly – Industrial Light & Magic


tipstricks vidimg exaggeration PeteKelly Peter Kelly    ExaggerationIndustrial Light & Magic’s Lead Animator Peter Kelly delves into the topic of exaggeration in animation. In order to really sell a scene, Kelly advises animators to push their comfort zone and create one pose that is more exaggerated than you’d normally create. Push it further and further, then ask for feedback from others. It is still possible to dial it back if necessary, but chances are, you will create a more dynamic shot by exaggerating one key pose.
