The art of timing and spacing - TED-Ed

Expert timing and spacing is what separates a slide show from a truly amazing animation. TED-Ed demonstrates, by manipulating various bouncing balls, how the smallest adjustments from frame to frame can make all the difference.

iAnimate alumni, Anthony Travieso, is 11 Second Club December 2013 Winner

Hey Anthony, so why did you decide to work on and submit this animation to 11 seconds club in the first place?

Well, I really didn't plan on doing an 11 second club animation but, a co-worker of mine asked me to listen to the audio, just to hear my thoughts about it. Initially, I felt it had potential, but it would be hard to find something cool to do. I realized the challenge that it it would present. A lot of times, some dialogue pieces can be very limiting but, with a sound clip you can really open up, and stretch your animation legs. That was one of the main reasons I decided to work, and submit this shot.

Testimonial from Henk Kok - iAnimate Games student

Henk Kok testimony

I joined iAnimate Games to bring my bodymechanics up several levels. What convinced me in the first place was animation friends enrolled with iAnimate who where creating amazing work.

Its been 7 weeks now and my instructor, Richard Lico taught me very concise what was working for me and what wasn't. With his guidence and feedback, I improved my sense of posing, timing, workflow and when and how to add detail. I now not only move with elegance from blocking to spline, it also became a very enjoyable experience.

Not bad for the first 7 weeks. :)

Student Spotlight and Testimonial from Feature Alumni - Keith Glass

Keith Glass alumni

Hey Jason. I know you probably get a ton of messages so I will try (and fail) to keep this brief. I got my first animation job at Reel FX a little over a year ago now. Our first movie Free Birds just came out this month actually. Anyway. I have been super excited about the movie coming out for awhile now and just today I was thinking that if I hadn't gone to iAnimate there is NO WAY I would be working on movies right now. So I wanted to just say, THANK YOU! You brought together a bunch of amazing instructors who really helped me get way better. You got all the students some amazing resources to not let anything get in the way of doing our best, and on top of that you are incredibly generous with your time, and your positive energy was always a huge help! I still listen to your demos while at work. I still don't understand how you work so fast! I am always confused, you do, in a couple hours, what takes me a whole day to do. One of these days I am gonna figure out what kind of magic hotkey you are using. But anyway, I just wanted to say thank you, because I never really got the chance to do so in person.
