For a long time now, I've been talking to you guys through CnC as well as many of my friends who share the same major about my concerns with how a lot of action films, or just action in general, is made today. Then my favorite YouTube film critic, Chris Stuckmann, made this video. I was so happy someone finally had the nerve to make this, because not only does it relate to my perspective, but provides an excellent, even more knowledgeable understanding with how action on screen is sold and why action in movies like The Hunger Games, Taken 3, Transformers, etc. FAIL to impress most audiences older than 13. Obviously, there are still some outstanding exceptions out there, but this video essentially explains problems with the ridiculous amount of mediocre movies, remakes, and sequels that have been pumping out lately. He makes some really strong points, and whether you agree or disagree, there are some really accurate observations made that I'm sure will benefit you in some way as an animator or content creator in general. It also uncovers some of the major misconceptions SOME of you guys have notably fallen for when animating fight scenes (such as having to add shaky cam for the sake of selling impacts). No offense. Therefore, it is my subjective opinion that everyone here who's eager to improve in action and storytelling NEEDS to watch this. Pay attention and enjoy :) http://youtu.be/eac0lXfMs9c If you don't know who Chris is, he's a passionate YouTube partner and a film critic who I truly respect and look up to, because unlike a lot of online critics out there, he actually went through film school himself and has the proper education and inspiration from professionals like Roger Ebert to know what he's talking about. Not like Jeremy Jahns, who is cool and charismatic, but has never touched film production or EVEN GONE TO COLLEGE! Anyway, I hope you found it as intriguing as I did :) On a side note, I apologize for not much activity lately due to school, but I resumed animating again last weekend and should have some more progress on my collab parts done before the end of this week. Stay tuned!
