First week and watching "Coonskin" was great I really enjoyed it and felt like a I related to Ralph Bakshi I grew up in a similar area, ok I say similar. It wasn't quite as rough but it was certainly a ghetto, filled with different cultures and ways of life. I find it interesting watching how people from different cultures act and react in similar situations. I would be interested in writing about the Punjabi community of Handsworth.

Week one

Where to start?
I am loving this course! Learning the ins and outs of animation! I can't wait to start making animations of my own.

Any who.....

What we've been doing over the past week and a bit is learning one or two (infact to be precise three) of the Animation principles. Timing, stetch and squash and anticipation. Stretch and squash and anticipation make total sense to me. They also make my brain work. But timing is something that I think I'm just going to have to get use to.
