“One of my favorite things about animation is that the boundaries are as limitless as our imaginations. If we can dream it, we can make it. And if we do it well, audiences will believe it wholeheartedly.” –Dean DeBlois, director

I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited.

20 ways to turn your life into a wes anderson movie →

Oh, Wes Anderson… you and your band of not-so-merry men fill a lonely little hole in my life. If I could live inside one of your movies, I totally would. I’d dance on the beach of Moonrise Kingdom to Françoise Hardy, I’d be there to help Steve Zissou out on his deep sea mission, and I’d most definitely be sitting in the corner watching Natalie Portman get naked in Hotel Chevalier. No matter what unfortunate circumstance might arise, everything would be beautiful and brilliantly soundtracked. Unfortunately, I can’t live in a Wes Anderson movie, but I can try my hardest to turn my own life into one. And so can you! Follow these steps and embrace the muted, well-structured world of Wanderson.

Pencil test time! This is the tied down version of one of the shots I animated for the opening credits of Gravity Falls

Learn from a true master of animation!

As both a Wes Anderson and stop-motion lover, WHY has it taken me so long to see this movie? The trailer threw me off. It was too fast and I didn’t catch any of the Wes subtlety from it. I FINALLY watched it and can say it’s one of my favorite movies. I can’t wait to watch it over and over to make up for all the time I spent not watching it. Here is an awesome little ‘making of’ video.

People who get into animation tend to be kids. We don’t have to grow up. But also, animators are great observers, and there’s this childlike wonder and interest in the world, the observation of little things that happen in life.

A short Making of video featuring Disney’s short, “Get A Horse”. Cool to see the process and how much 2D planning was involved. Eric Goldberg was the 2d lead.

My favorite piece my Lorelay Bove. I love everything she does. I might have to get the brunette mermaid tattooed.
