BRIAN MCDONALD ON STORY

Here's an interview with one of the best animation teachers I've ever had, and he's not even an animator. Brian has taught me so much about observation and clarity - it has changed the way I approach my scenes, and showed me that animators are storytellers too.

The High Bar w/ Warren Etheredge & Brian McDonald from The High Bar on Vimeo.

Brian has lectured at both Disney and Pixar, and I only wish he were down in LA more often so we could benefit from his wisdom on a regular basis. Check out his books Invisible Ink and The Golden Theme, as well as his Invisible Ink blog.


Also, for those of you near San Diego, he will be speaking at a TR!CKSTER Symposium on July 22nd.
