So I've mentioned a few times already that I think it's important to really examine the work that inspires you - tear it apart, figure out how it was done, scrub through it frame-by-frame. Fortunately, the team at Glassworks Barcelona made this a simple task by posting a "making of/breakdown" of their work on an animation sequence for the movie "A Monster Calls." It is a fascinating look into the work that went into this animation sequence, and some of the setups are surprisingly simple, yet incredibly effective. I'm in love with the fusion of techniques and styles - 3D animation painted over frame-by-frame in some cases. Super cool! Check it out, I promise you'll be inspired!
