The Traditional Animation Process

The Traditional Animation Process

start hey everyone  I’m going to be talking about the actual process of talking about the actual process  of making a traditionally animated movie so making a traditionally animated movie so last week I talked about what last week I talked about what last week so this is also the same Story boarding  with any film really you usually always  you make it storyboard the film before you make of  saying what’s gonna of hand drawings saying what’s gonna happen Nietzsche and how each scene is happen Nietzsche and how each scene is happen Nietzsche and how each scene is gonna look some of the camera angles  and things like that as well as a few notes things like that as well as a few notes things like that as well as a few notes here and there and it’s just used by here and there and it’s just used by here and there and it’s just used by everyone to know the flow of the story and how it’s gonna work really so the and how it’s gonna work really so the and how it’s gonna work really  were utterly current process used developed by Disney in the 1930s and then after the storyboard is made  voice recording is pretty self-explanatory this is also where a kind of basic soundtrack is made for the entire movie so this is called a for the entire movie so this is called a for the entire movie so this is called a scratch track and yeah it’s very basic scratch track and yeah it’s very basic scratch track and yeah it’s very basic and it may change over time but it’s and it may change over time but it’s and it may change over time but it’s just basically something for the for the just basically something for the for the just basically something for the for the storyboard to go along with in the next storyboard to go along with in the next storyboard to go along with in the next section and that next section is the section and that next section is the section and that next section is the Animatic section . So this is basically Animatic  which is basically put in the storyboard pictures from before along to the scratch that was made in the voice recording section was made in the voice recording section was made in the voice recording section patsy  if you nip it out mister lot clear scheme is that a box yes it’s in the scheme is that a box yes it’s in the scheme is that a box yes it’s in the dressing table and it’s basically moving dressing table and it’s basically moving dressing table and it’s basically moving the pictures along to the dialogue and the pictures along to the dialogue and the pictures along to the dialogue and music if there is music in the film this music if there is music in the film this music if there is music in the film this is the point where scenes can be taken is the point where scenes can be taken is the point where scenes can be taken out or timing issues can be found or out or timing issues can be found or out or timing issues can be found or scenes can be changed or anything like scenes can be changed or anything like scenes can be changed or anything like that this is before too much time and that this is before too much time and that this is before too much time and money has gone into the film so any money has gone into the film so any money has gone into the film so any problems need to be found at this point problems need to be found at this point problems need to be found at this point to avoid wasting money in the future and to avoid wasting money in the future and to avoid wasting money in the future and then comes the designing so the design then comes the designing so the design then comes the designing . So the design is sent off to the designing department  where model sheets are made to basically show what the characters are gonna look show what the characters are gonna look  like from different dimensions and like from different dimensions and like from different dimensions and things like that sometimes physical things like that sometimes physical things like that sometimes physical models are also made to so animators can models are also made to so animators can models are also made to so animators can get a 3d look of the character and know get a 3d look of the character and know get a 3d look of the character and know exactly also drawing from a certain exactly also drawing from a certain exactly also drawing from a certain direction and the art directors in color direction and the art directors in color direction and the art directors in color stylists also get to work coming up with stylists also get to work coming up with stylists also get to work coming up with a color scheme  as well as an art style for the film to and then comes timing  isn’t actually after the designing isn’t actually after the designing i Persist it happens. so this is basically where the animatic  is put to frame timings and this results in to  frame timings and this results  sheet being made of an egg sheet which basically is a guide for sheet which basically is a guide for sheet which basically is a guide for animators to know the timings for things animators to know the timings for things animators to know the timings for things bar sheets can also be made along with bar sheets can also be made along with bar sheets can also be made along with our instead of the egg cheese and this our instead of the egg cheese and this our instead of the egg cheese and this basically puts the actions as well as basically puts the actions as well as basically puts the actions as well as the dialogue on to music and sets the the dialogue on to music and sets the the dialogue on to music and sets the timing for both of them together and timing for both of them together and timing for both of them together and then comes the layout stage when the two then comes the layout stage when the two then comes the layout stage when the two previous stages were approved so at this previous stages were approved so at this previous stages were approved so at this point that background leo artists are point that background leo artists are point that background leo artists are gonna determine stuff like camera angles gonna determine stuff like camera angles gonna determine stuff like camera angles camera paths shading lighting and things camera paths shading lighting and things camera paths shading lighting and things like that and the character layout like that and the character layout like that and the character layout artists are gonna work out things such artists are gonna work out things such artists are gonna work out things such as character poses . how the characters as character poses how the characters as character poses how the characters move and some defining features of them move and some defining features of them move and some defining features of them throughout the film and then all these throughout the film and then all these throughout the film and then all these layout drawings that are created are layout drawings that are created are layout drawings that are created are then put together with the storyboards then put together with the storyboards then put together with the storyboards and all the rest of this stuff basically and all the rest of this stuff basically and all the rest of this stuff basically and then finally at this stage the and then finally at this stage the and then finally at this stage the animation can actually begin and at this animation can actually begin and at this animation can actually begin and at this stage another animatic is actually made stage another Animatic is actually made stage another Animatic is actually made to see if there’s any final things that to see if there’s any final things that to see if there’s any final things that need to be changed before the actual need to be changed before the actual need to be changed before the actual animation begins and then once the animation begins and then once the animation begins and then once the animatic is approved and the directors animatic is approved and the directors . everything the animation stage  actually begins so at this stage is when the animators actually sit down is when the animators actually sit down is when the animators actually sit down and start animating everything out start and start animating everything out start and start animating everything out start making the characters there’s lots of making the characters there’s lots of making the characters there’s lots of steps to this process again so I’m steps to this process again so I’m steps to this process again so I’m probably gonna make an entire video just probably gonna make an entire video just probably gonna make an entire video just saying about how the animation process saying about how the animation process saying about how the animation process actually works as in just the animation actually works as in just the animation actually works as in just the animation stage but basically there’s all that stage but basically there’s all that stage but basically there’s all that stuff that happens and the actual stuff that happens and the actual stuff that happens and the actual animation comes out but there’s actually animation comes out but there’s actually animation comes out but there’s actually different kind of layers to animation so different kind of layers to animation so different kind of layers to animation so all the characters are done on different all the characters are done on different all the characters are done on different layers and there’s a separate person layers and there’s a separate person layers and there’s a separate person that does all the backgrounds so at this that does all the backgrounds so at this that does all the backgrounds so at this stage the background artists will start stage the background artists will start stage the background artists will start making all the backgrounds for the making all the backgrounds for the making all the backgrounds for the film’s and just what any animated film film’s and just what any animated film film’s and just what any animated film you’ll see that there’s a lot of you’ll see that there’s a lot of you’ll see that there’s a lot of background so they’ve got a lot of work background so they’ve got a lot of work background so they’ve got a lot of work to do with that these bad burns are to do with that these bad burns are to do with that these bad burns are usually painted with Gucci or acrylic usually painted with Gucci or acrylic usually painted with Gucci or acrylic paint although sometimes watercolor paint although sometimes watercolor paint although sometimes watercolor paint and . Oil paint is used instead and paint and oil paint is used instead and paint and oil paint is used instead and these background artists work on-site these background artists work on-site these background artists work on-site the guides that are given to them by the the guides that are given to them by the the guides that are given to them by the backbone they  are as well as the color stylists as this is as well as the color stylists as this is as well as the color stylists as this is done comes the ink and print  and camera process so there’s a traditional as well process so there’s a traditional as well process so there’s a traditional as well as a digital way to do this the as a digital way to do this the as a digital way to do this the traditional way is obviously the longer traditional way is obviously the longer traditional way is obviously the longer way so the driving sir end up being hung way so the driving sir end up being hung way so the driving sir end up being hung cells or celluloid sheets cells or celluloid sheets cells or celluloid sheets I’ve only it on top of each other to I’ve only it on top of each other to I’ve only it on top of each other to basically make the scene and then all basically make the scene and then all basically make the scene and then all the cells are covered by glass and then the cells are covered by glass and then the cells are covered by glass and then of. Ostrom camera takes a picture of them and that basically makes  up a thing so sometimes photos are taken  multiple times for the same scene and yeah that times for the same scene and yeah that basically brings you to the final movie  but if you go in the digital process  it’s a lot easier so these photos can it’s a lot easier so these photos can it’s a lot easier so these photos can either just be photocopied or they could either just be photocopied  or they could be drawn on drawing tablets  and then these can either be computers and then these can either be computers and then these can either be put over that have been put over backgrounds that have been digitally scanned or backgrounds that digitally scanned or backgrounds that digitally scanned or backgrounds that were just drawn directly on the computer were just drawn directly on the computer were just drawn directly on the computer and yet these are all put together again and yet these are all put together again and yet these are all put together again and that’s the movie so that’s the and that’s the movie so that’s the and that’s the movie so that’s the entire process from beginning  to end of making an animated movie it may seem making an animated movie it may seem making an animated movie it may seem easy from just me talking about it but easy from just me talking About it but easy from just me talking about it but the process is really hard and time-consuming  and it takes animators years to make just one movie and this years to make just one movie and this isn’t even taken into consideration this soundtrack has also made during this time – there’s a lot of things that time – there’s a lot of things that time – there’s a lot of things that going to make in a film soundtrack but going to make in a film soundtrack  but yeah that’s it for this video that’s how yeah that’s it for this video that’s how yeah that’s it for this video that’s how the whole traditional animation process the whole traditional animation process the whole traditional animation process works if you like this video be sure to works if you like this video be sure to works if you like this video be sure to give it a like be sure to subscribe to give it a like be sure to subscribe to give it a like be sure to subscribe to see more videos like this as well as see more videos like this as well as see more videos like this as well as movie reviews I also do in this channel movie reviews I also do in this channel movie reviews I also do in this channel and yeah hope you have a good day see and yeah hope you have a good day see and yeah hope you have a good day see you on the next video bye As found on Youtube The Traditional Animation Process
