Don’t Forget to Rest #TopTip

Into animation? Here's a #toptip from the studio via our Animation Director Matteo Ceccotti - this one's about how important it is to rest.


Matteo: Often, when we start out in animation we have a ton of enthusiasm and energy, burning the midnight oil trying to get that perfect pose or that snappy timing. That’s great! But I often see talented animators ruin their shot because they kept tinkering after many hours spent animating.

If we start animating at 9AM, and go uninterrupted, by 5/6PM we should stop.

It’s hard to understand at the beginning, but a good nights rest will help us WAY more than just staying up for long hours in front of a computer. So go home, relax, watch a movie with your family and tomorrow, with a rested mind, everything will look clearer!
