Any Journey Begins With A First Step

Craft
1 : skill in planning, making, or executing
2 : an occupation or trade requiring artistic skill


This is the first step in our journey to explore the craft of making cartoons. This weblog is intended to be a "how to" companion to our studio weblog "
Between The Frames". The reason for creating and publishing a companion weblog is to allow us the opportunity to have a very focused place for exploring and discussing the craft aspects of traditional cartoon making.

We will continue to discuss our own studio behind the scenes topics as well as more editorial type discussions over at "
Between The Frames". But "The Craft Of Making Cartoons" will hopefully develop into a great knowledge and educational resource for anyone who is interested in having a better understanding of the creative aspects of making animated cartoons.

The articles for this weblog will be much more detailed and normally presented in multi-part series. Reader comments and input are encouraged and questions or topic suggestions are also welcomed. So let the journey begin with this first step.

This is a great idea for a blog! I'm looking forward reading your posts.

One topic suggestion I have would be a discusson on how to learn and blend the many skills required to create good animation (drawing, filmmaking, acting, etc.) versus getting on with the work of making films. In other words, how to learn 'properly', what to study, but with time left over to actually create something.

Thanks for being so generous with your knowledge.

Jimmy, I will certainly try to address your suggestion in future posts, so thanks, as always for your input.

I really want this blog to become a useful resource. Marty has been after me forever to do something like this because he can't talk me into writing a book. I hope that eventually this blog will become far more valuable to readers than a single printed book.
