Can the administrator please remove me from this forum, because I'm very 'not required and unwanted'.
And I agree, my comments were very 'Not justified or deserved; unwarranted: uncalled-for rude'
(isn't rudeness always uncalled for? I mean, if it's called fo, is it still rudeness then? )
I', sorry, I'm Dutch, I can't help myself. It's the environment, the genes.
Please reject me.
I deserve such a treatment.

but after watching it a couple of times or even at the end of seeing it the first time, some disappointed set in.
Maybe because of the impossible high expectations (Williams is supposed to be the best there is)
My main trouble lies with the 'marching loop'
It turns out that to me it feels like all these characters are walking the same walk! The only major thing that separates them is their proportions and their outside skin, the way they are rendered. There seem to be no individual character traits in how they animated!(with the possible exception of that double bouncing fox)
What a missed opportunity to show how difference of character can be expressed through walking.
i mean...even both the stick figure and the little 'UPA'-like character move super slick, completely countering their design andehat they stand for?!
I think it was a mistake to make them all walk on singles. And to also have them all walk the same speed 'conveyor belt' is what is causing this.
high trees catch lots of wind
...in the end ... off course....the piece is extremely craftfully exercised.

Do you then consider Richard Williams a formula expert?
Given your definition of elite, i would reckon him to be an ultimate elite animator.
but ....maybe he is an elite formula expert!
either way he should be enjoyable for you to listen to him

Aahhh... another orthodoxy in the making...Otherwise it's a very good book, I think.

masterchief wrote:interesting group walk cycle.... one problem!
first two characters have shortest gate... they are chopping there steps as compared to the much taller characters that are walking full strides and everyone is covering same space... taller characters should be chopping their steps and shorter ones should be FULL stride to keep up, even overreaching.... does not look believable to me IMHO. stickman should be walking past the first two characters!
comes from trying to teach military drill to group of 80 navy recruits not knowing left foot from the right foot... LOL
