Ian has set animators a 60fr/d/6d challenge. I would suggest to any of my students reading this blog to animate daily with simple shaped characters as a start. You will notice that you are doing a lot of animation based on bouncing balls in studio. When you can animate balls like Cameron Miyasaki (2002), then move forward to using character rigs with the skills you have learnt. I do believe that ball 'looks' through the fence... How does it do that? It has no eyes!
