The 12 basic principles of animation were developed by the “old
men” of Walt Disney Studios, amongst them Frank Thomas and Ollie
Johnston, during the 1930s. Of course they weren’t old men at the
time, but young men who were at the forefront of exciting
discoveries that were contributing to the development of a new art
form. These principles came as a result of reflection about their
practice and through Disney’s desire to use animation to express
character and personality.
This movie is my personal take on those principles, applied to
simple shapes. Like a cube.
Wonderfully illustrated. UI designers would do well to study this.
