Tonyteach’s Toon Boom DVD

Anatomy of a 30 Second Short DVDUPDATE: Busy week here in Tonyteach world, with lots of exciting things lining up, but we can’t spill the beans just yet. : )

We are working away on setting up the Toon Boom Animate DVD: Anatomy of a 30-second Short – Animation from Thought to Finish Pre-orders on Indie GoGo. The date to place your pre-orders has been moved to this Friday, February 17th.

To create a successful story, you should be able to explain it in a single sentence. Example: Geeky teenager gets bitten by radioactive spider, and gains super hero powers.

With this in mind, we are announcing today the title and summary of our upcoming Toon Boom Animate DVD: Anatomy of a 30-second Short – Animation from Thought to Finish…

Beaver Cola:
A soda company markets its product based on the fact that the primary ingredient in their beverage comes from the business end of a beaver.

By the way, the Beaver Cola company is a parody, but the ingredient “castoreum” is very real.

The DVD will show everything from the initial pitch, creating the piece in Toon Boom Animate, to the final 30 second short. We will be taking pre-orders via raising funds on Indie GoGo starting February 17. Our goal is to raise at least $1000, and the rewards will include being able to pre-purchase the entire DVD as a download for just $1! (limited to first 600 backers). The DVD will release March 30, 2012.

Toon Boom Animate: Forward Walk Cycle [PREMIUM TUTORIAL]

A walk cycle? With no legs??

In this premium Toon Boom Animate tutorial, we create a forward walk-cycle (no legs involved).

This tutorial is based on anime and old-school limited animation, like Scooby Doo. Whenever you would see a character walking toward the camera, they would only be shown from the waist up. This was used as an option, when time and budget were tight, as it takes longer to create a convincing forward walk cycle when the legs are visible.

This Premium tutorial is 26 min long, and normally priced at $2.95, but for a limited time, you can get this for just $1.

All the best-

Toon Boom Animate: Pose to Pose : Blobs

This Toon Boom Animate tutorial is a simple pose-to-pose animation exercise of a blob splitting off a baby blob. Traditional animation terms are covered like keyframes, breakdowns, and tweens. This tutorial, like the stick tutorial plays with idea of a basic way counting when animating – instead of 1-2-3-4-5, for this pose to pose exercise you count 1-5-3-2-4… watch the video, you’ll catch on. Enjoy.
