Here’s more material from my theory lectures. I made these clips to analyze various timing styles by showing the exact frame overlap of each animation. The clips on the left basically isolate the motion and allow us to see and compare it clearly - without design, color or sound distracting our brains.
My last post showed how motion-contrast was something that evolved over time. These examples show how motion, as it’s own aesthetic, eventually branched out into different schools of timing. Each one is a refined method of representing movement in a stylized way. They don’t strive towards realism, their beauty is in how unrealistic they are while still communicating ideas. They are all solutions to the same problem: how does a character get from one place to another.
Animation schools are extremely dogmatic about teaching essentially Disney timing, the 3d animation we see in the cinema is just a continuation of these old principles. There’s nothing inherently wrong with that, but theres so much else to explore. A lot of (dumb) people dismiss South Park’s animation, but it’s an education in minimalism. Richard Williams’s style (the 2nd clip) is obsessively smooth and floaty. Anime uses very few drawings and feels choppy and solid.
Hopefully this shows you that animation is basically music, theres entire genres of motion if you look deep enough.

T MAGAZINE - Steven Sebring’s Fourth-Dimensional Perspective
“It’s dope, isn’t it?” asked Steven Sebring in his Lower Manhattan studio. He was gazing at what he calls the Rig, a 10.5-by-15-foot igloo-like silver contraption (or “geodome”) designed to capture the form and movement of the subject standing inside from every imaginable angle. Sebring, a fashion photographer and award-winning filmmaker, used the device to create “Revolution,” a three-year effort on display for three days at the 69th Regiment Armory. The multimedia exhibition pays simultaneous tribute to the 19th-century English photographer Eadweard Muybridge and to Marcel Duchamp, whose abstract classic “Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2″ drew inspiration from Muybridge’s pioneering stop-motion imagery. The device contains 100 synchronized cameras that shoot in predetermined sequences, allowing Sebring to capture form and movement from numerous perspectives simultaneously — for example, his muse, Coco Rocha, spinning and dancing (as seen in “Discovery,” the first clip above). He can then present the results in numerous forms, including film, photographs and sculpture.
also i have my own little folder of estonian 1920s geometric painting art so……… thought i could use those too and show them to more students in the class hm
then again who cares it’s just a presentation! the teacher gave a new one on new topic each class and sure, they give those lectures each year, but i should stop worrying because,hey, at least 11 more of us will be doing one of their own
i wanna do a presentation on cubism and other geometrical forms, but for some reason feel like maybe the teacher didn’t LIKE that topic, so that’s why i’ve been leaving that in the clear….. also i probably would focus more on the other styles just mostly because i like those more but hmmmm
#3, #5, #9, #10 and #12 are my favourites.
I love these!
My friend’s mom had a bunch from her own class, but there was one we actually really liked: “quick as paper.” I dunno, just something about it.
I can’t believe Billy Joe Cobra bought Tumblr.
I can’t believe he’s renaming it Tumbro.
so i heard you like smears, dtmg fandom?
