Spartacus – tv show


I know… this is a bit off topic 😀  but I’m watching again this amazing tv show, I just love it! Extremely intricate plot and a huuuugeeee font of reference for Actions animations! 😉

I often go to analyze some poses and actions from this show when I need some references! It’s a goldmine for this type of animations! 😛

By the way, yesterday I just had this inspiration and creativity so I’ve done this “tribute” to some of the characters and their most famous quotes!

ps. GANNICUS ♥ deserves two of them! 😀 😀 😀

I really enjoy creating this 2D sketches and comics, I have an entire blog “My life Adventures Book” where I posted some comics of real life’s adventures (most of them are in italian). It’s been a while since I posted the last one, I should add some new comics 🙂

In a Heartbeat – short movie


The animated short movie many animators (and not only them) were waiting for!

Hey guys! I’m really excited today ’cause I’ve seen this beautiful and touching piece of animation that I want to share with you! 🙂

Finally, someone brought up a theme that has never been addressed so directly, so far…

Beth David and Esteban Bravo just did it, and in the more adorable and subtle way as possible.

In their animated short movie “In a Heartbeat” they follow this super cute redhair boy in an internal conflict (not so internal…actually :D) while the boy he likes is walking to school.

“A closeted boy runs the risk of being outed by his own heart after it pops out of his chest to chase down the boy of his dreams” this is the plot… and I just love it! 🙂 (from the official Facebook Page In a Heartbeat – Animated Short Film)
The idea of this little “brave” heart popping out of his chest… is just BRILLIANT!
Or, do we want to talk about the moment when the heart/boy touches his hair….. ? Beautiful…

I found this short really INSPIRATIONAL, you know…. when I see this kind of things I really believe that we do “the best job in world”
Besides this, I really loved the character design, renders and…..the MUSIC! When everything can be told with not a single word…. really well done!

So, all my respect to this two great guys and…Thanks for made me dream today! 😉
I really look forward for new projects from you! 😉

Ok, now… LET’S GO BACK TO ANIMATE!!! 😀

Animators Corner #1


– Animator’s Survival Kit-

This is the first video for ” Animator’s Corner “ where I will talk about different topics: books, movies, softwares, games…. everything that comes up in my mind connected to the animation industry.
I want to start showing you the masterpiece of the animator books, written by the animator Richard Williams (animation director of “Who framed Roger Rabbit”), and published in 2001 (FF).
