Short Film on THE PROCESS OF ANIMATION PRODUCTION

  I`ve been often asked “how do you make a piece of animation?
  In truth it is kind of like being asked... how do you make a car?” -- The answer isn`t a simple 1 or 2 step process.  While projects, styles, and techniques can vary, there generally is a whole assembly line of things that need to take place in order to go from initial concept to final polished gem.

  But fear NOT!!!... now there is a fun little short film called The Story of Animation to help answer this question. Written and directed by animation veteran David Tart, this tongue-in-cheek “cartoon modern” styled educational short was created as a way to introduce potential advertising clients to the animation process.
