Time for a new reel, right? Well, here is a progression reel of one of the two shots I did for Ice Age 4.
I wanted to share this reel to show how animators are expected to take what is shown on the boards and nail all the basic actions and beats that are shown there, but in addition, “plus” the boards with new choices and additional gags.
The boards were done by my very talented friend, Jerod Chirico. I actually animated this shot while I was also animating on Blue Sky’s film Rio back in 2010. I didn’t get to animate all that much on this show since I was part of the pre-production crew for Blue Sky’s film Epic.
