Meet the MASTER

Hi, I am back with the feeling of writing about the Encounters Short Film Festival that took place in Bristol. Everything was great, but not as great as the Masterclass of Richard Williams that I attended~ Well, for those of you who don't know this great master/ animator, he is the author for the best selling animation book "The Animator's Survival Kit".

And now, he is going to release his compiled works into 16 DVD-Box set called "The Animator's Survival Kit - ANIMATED".

The whole set cost approximately £700, which equals roughly RM3800++...oh my god, at first I still thinking if I am able to grab a copy of that DVD-Box set but seem that it's impossible now~ But anyway, he is really a great person and he is the person who still holds the wonderful principles & formulas of Animation passed down to him by few legendary artists during the Golden Age of Animation such as Chuck Jones, Ken Harris, Milt Kahl and Art Babbitt. It is my honour to be able to attend his Masterclass session, and also meet him in person, have some mini chats with him and his signature. It's a shame I don't have the book for him to sign...But hey, I still manage to take a photo with him~

· My ticket to the ma
sterclass. As I don't have the book, so got the signature from master Richard Williams on my ticket~

· Mr. Richard Williams and me, I am totally respect this great Animator~

Well, that's all for now. In conclusion I really enjoyed the session very much and got inspired by Mr. Williams on how to animate in correct and efficient way. By the way, check out the promo video for the Logo of the DVD-Box set~
