'JoJo in the Stars' Animation Director - Marc Craste

Marc started his animation career in Sydney. His 2004 debut short film "JoJo in the Stars" won many awards. This is a short lecture he gave in Berlin in 2009 on contemporary character design. Very interesting comments about simplicity in design... "Animation works when it is simpler". Marc describes how his 'pica' characters were given the ability to express emotion because they could move their eyes... "It's all in the eyes". This video comes to us via a Keith Lango's blog post.

JoJo in the Stars is an amazing film. It is so much better now that I watched that clip about the character design. Also saw the post on Alonso's Monotreme Dreams blog. You guys have an animation cartel going here.
