Home: "It's a Secret" scenes
I have to thank my supervisor Ryan MacNeil for his direction on this sequence. Ryan gives a lot of thought and attention to why his favorite cartoons work as well as they do, he establishes very interesting and practical theories based on his inquiries. He said that the reason people laughed at the animatic (attached to the corners of this video) was how abruptly the poses change, and so my in-betweens must very strongly favour the next pose, they should almost pop, so to maintain the element of surprise. Had we put in-betweens in the middle of the arc, they would have made the viewers anticipate the next pose and so they wouldn’t laugh as much. I wouldn’t have thought about that without his direction.
