If you begin to animate, you will face the problem, what is good animation? what is the best animation?
There is the hint in the great works of the giants.
Think the difference between the essence of Hayao Miyazaki's animation and Pixar animation.
(In this sentense, Animation means movement or actions of characters.)
At First, the best point of PIXAR's works is in story. Their mantra is that the most important thing is story. And their stories are always wonderfull. Episode makes next episode like chains or rolling stone.
And then, All of Pixar character's motions is for telling story.
Everyone, even if children, can understand the character's emotion.
And their performance are fantastic. Even if a character is Ramp, he has emotion and will. Pixar is the embodyment of the illusion of life, Disney's magic.
Hayao Miyazaki is the director of " Princess Mononoke", "Gake no ue no Ponyo".
It is not necessarily the case that Audience can understand his character's feelings.
And his story is difficult to understand. His stories have many independent episodes, and it is not necessarily the case that evey episodes have conclusion.
But the character of his works is the amusingness of motion, or animation.
It is not so realistic, but it make you feel real.
His character fly, so that you can fly.
He knows the timing making audience feel good. So if you can't understand his story, you can't help watching his film without boring.
His character's animations express human's habit than emotion from his observant eye. It is a technique in comedy.
So what is the conclusion?
