In regards to the growing industry, what skills do you think are the most desirable and/or sought in aspiring animators?
At Titmouse we sometimes talk about the Triangle of Power
To have a good place in this industry you must have two out of three in any combination.
There is also a magical 4th component which is personality. If it’s awesome, then you can sometimes get away with only having one element on the triangle of power and if its horrible then even if you have all three you may have a hard time getting a job. Animators spend hours upon hours sitting in a dark room working together… If you’re a tough person to get along with producers may pass you over for someone with inferior skill, but superior charisma.
I was wondering, do you have a motorcity OC? If so, tell us about him/her. :3
I don’t think I have an OC in the sense you mean, but there are two background characters that I have an unreasonable attachment too.
They are both in Antonio’s diner when #2/Babs is interviewing people for “The Duke Presents.” The first one is the blond guy who grabs the camera to cheer on Mike, he is the only character that I personally designed myself… He is actually made out of pieces from all of the other burners put together… The other one is the curly haired guy with the hook hand. He didn’t used to have a hook hand and I put it in there as kind of a joke, I didn’t expect it to make it into the final episode and now I feel a deep sense of responsibility that I have maimed him so, since every scene he shows up in afterwards he still has the hook.
