The Secret to a Creative Animation

You're sitting at your desk, the deadline is up, you have to get your Animation done. What is the first thing you do? If you're like the majority, you'll start doing the presentation. Big mistake!

The problem by starting in a screen. It destroys your creativity and keeps you from seeing the big picture of your presentation.

So what's the solution? It's simple: Get away from the screen!

Software and tools distract us from what's important; font size, animations, colors, shadings, they're all secondary. First, you need to get your story right. So, close down, grab a paper and pen, and start drawing your animation character in hand.

Not only do we avoid distractions, but when we start drawing in hand you will naturally connect to the right side of your brain and stimulate your creativity. It enables you to think beyond the possibilities, so you can.
