TRICKS OF THE TRADE
Jim Wheeler talks about balancing the amount of time you have with the detail in each frame
Working with time-consuming, hand-drawn character animation to a tight deadline, we tried to minimise the amount of movement in the secondary characters. This also works well to focus your attention on the main character. It was a slight creative challenge finding a neat balance for the personality traits of the main character. We wanted him to be likeable and fashion conscious, but not too try-hard or trendy, as well as portraying a humorous nature through the animation.
