The One About the 9 Old Men.

One of my favorite books on animation is The Illusion of Life by Ollie Johnson and Frank Thomas…it is one of few books that i sought an original collectors version of.  In the book, there is a beautiful breakdown of how animation evolved through trial, error, discovery and critique.  The movie posted below shows, in a very simple way, the key principles that are the foundation of bringing objects to life through animation as described by the original animators at Disney.  Amazing work by Cento Lodigiani!!
