“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney
Life has you believe that if you listen to your parents, have good grades in school, and graduate from college your future is ensured. While we spend most of our time abiding to the rules, we begin to forget what it meant to dream. The bygone time when we dreamed of becoming an astronaut, an explorer, a scientist, and an artist. Most dreamers die due to the pressure of social norms and burden of economic production. Being a dreamer is not easy, you’ll most likely face hardships, have to forgo meals, and constantly worry about next month’s rent. But fulfilling that dream is worth all the hardships. If you have the courage to take the risk and follow your dreams.
“Animation is not the art of drawings that move but the art of movements that are drawn.” – Norman McLaren
The illusion of movement created through a sequence of images is one of the most valuable things that animation has over other art forms. Sometimes when we get bogged down in storyboarding, this quote reminds us to zoom out and consider the movement that is created when your individual drawings flow together. Draw for the movement, not just the sketch!
“Nothing’s occurring in animation – you manufacture everything.” – Gore Verbinski
Another short one, this time from Gore Verbinski, director of Rango, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Ring and more. His filmography spans not just animation so this quote speaks to the sheer potential at your fingertips with the form when compared to more traditional live action feature length motion picture. You really can do anything when you animate – you not only have boundless possibility but if you want it you have to make it happen yourself. So go do it!

Jennifer Yuh Nelson is a director and storyboard artist most well-known for her work on the Kung Fu Panda series and Madagascar. This is one that we had firmly in our mind when we decided to write about how to create the perfect storyboard a few weeks ago. If you still need convincing of the importance of story…
“If you’re sitting in your minivan, playing your computer animated films for your children in the back seat, is it the animation that’s entertaining you as you drive and listen? No, it’s the storytelling. That’s why we put so much importance on story. No amount of great animation will save a bad story.” – John Lasseter
Remember your audience and what’s important to them! Once you have a strong story, use the tools at your disposal to tell that story in an engaging way that enriches your narrative. Big flashy visuals may seem like the most important piece of the puzzle, but keep your audience’s entertainment at the forefront of your process. John Lasseter is the chief creative officer of Pixar, Walt Disney Animation Studios and DisneyToon Studios.
“What I love most about animation is, it’s a team sport, and everything we do is about pure imagination.” – Jeffrey Katzenberg
Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks Animation definitely knows a thing or two about managing animators. He really taps into the mindset of the animation studio that comes together in a shared imaginative bond all in the name of creating something that would be impossible alone. We love this idea and it’s one that is explored further…
“Doing animation is closer to pretending than anything else you get to do. It’s much more like when you’re a kid putting on a character.” – Diedrich Bader
Diedrich Bader is a voice actor for a range of animated series such as Batman and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. He’s coming from a slightly different perspective than us here in the studio and we love the way he interprets animation in his work with this quote really emphasising the imaginative aspects of animation.
