2D animation basics

I recently spoke at St Scholastica on the basics of 2D animation. I have created a page where you can read a bit of information about 2D animation here - http://reymendoza.blogspot.com/p/2d-animation.html

For the most part I really like the stop motion animation process - it gives you enough creativity using photographs. But maybe im a bit biased because Im a photographer :). A student asked me, wouldnt it be easier if I just export the footages to jpg images - frame by frame? No, it is not the same. You cannot achieve the "magic" of animation where the next frame is a different photo. Kinda hard to explain in words but believe me, its just not the same. And the quality of a single photo is hard to match if you export a jpg from a movie footage - (not unless you have a very expensive movie camera like that can shoot 4K film)

I'm looking to do more animation this year. and most probably a short film. My client needs it for his project. Im looking forward to it.

Below is one of my favorite stop-motion animations - the Western Spaghetti


  1. Wow! Your post was simply incredible. It is worth visiting and Big thanks for sharing this video with us. It can helps a lot. Keep sharing.

  2. Today it is easier than ever to get into animation. There are plenty of software available, some of them are quite cheap, and most modern computer can handle the simpler animation tasks.
    The catch is that although anyone can start animating right now, the art of animation is not easy to learn and very hard to master.
