Earlier today, legendary animation showrunner Joe Murray made a pdf of Creating Animated Cartoons with Character, his OOP (and very hard to find!) book on animation development, free to download on his website. I’ve been a fan of this book since it first came out. Very cool to have it set free and available again.
DIY Animation Club co-founder Dave Merson Hess taught and developed animation curriculum for Aurora Picture Show’s youth workshops, 2014-2018. He also started Rush Process, a Gulf Coast-based festival celebrating animators who work with physical media, which ran from 2015 to 2018. Dave is currently an MFA candidate in Experimental Animation at Calarts.
