Sparkling the Cartoon


In early 2020 we hosted an event called "Sparkling the Cartoon" in which Jorge Vigara reproduced his real workflow for the creation of a cartoon acting shot. These are recordings of a live process - meaning, no cuts, no speeds up. This will help you really understand how much time and detail it takes to do this kind of work. You will learn the breakdown of a high-performance workflow, frame by frame. Key aspects for shot planning and animation design. Tips & tricks in how to pose, do breakdowns, and polish. Use of tools for following trajectories, spacing, and simple drills with Animbot!
