Croods DVD!

Today is the release day for the DVD for “The Croods!” In honor of the occasion, I thought it’d be fun to share the following video. A while back I had to opportunity to talk about my experience working on the film. To help breakdown what it’s like being an animator, I talked about the process of how an animated shot comes together. I included thumbnails that I drew for various shots(like the ones shown here) and I also edited a reel together of some of the reference I used for shot-based inspiration for “The Croods.”  Some was more loosely followed (more for an impression), others I stayed truer too. It really came down to what the shot called for. This is just a small percentage of the reference I collected over the course of production.

So enjoy and go out and buy the DVD--- everyone’s favorite Croodaceous family is now available on Amazon, iTunes, and even the local grocery stores! It even looks like you can own Belt in special combo packages.
