Plan your scene

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

At Dis­ney we would spend weeks plan­ning a scene be­fore we put pen­cil to pa­per. On Beauty and the Beast I cre­ated hun­dreds of thumb­nails and did weeks of plan­ning be­fore I started to an­i­mate. What feel­ing do you get from the au­dio? What are the scene re­quire­ments? There are no unim­por­tant throw­away shots. Max­imise the im­pact of ev­ery frame.

Cre­ate thumb­nail sketches

It’s ab­so­lutely cru­cial that you make thumb­nail sketches of your scene. Typ­i­cally, th­ese will be of your key poses. You’ll be con­stantly re­fer­ring to th­ese thumb­nails as you an­i­mate. This is your op­por­tu­nity to work out the scene, so try to get the best poses you can.
