Check out these very revealing shot breakdowns from the CGI Animated Film “Epic” by the talented animator, Patrick Giusiano! Check below for more details:
Hi, I’m Patrick Giusiano, I’m a French animator, currently working in Blue Sky Studios and I had the great privilege to work on Epic. Working with Chris Wedge and all the Amazing Blue Sky animation team was one of the most enjoyable moments in my career. By working on my shots, showing them in dailies, I learned things to help facilitate the life of a shot from the Kick off to the Final delivery. I thought it would be interesting to share what I learned in this video… Here is an educational video showing different personal animation techniques I developed during EPIC. I hope it will bring animation students fresh ideas on how to handle their shots. I’m sure you’ll also have fun watching it even if you don’t know anything about animation 🙂 I tried my best to explain the main steps I followed by displaying them in a fun and enjoyable video…

EPIC tells the story of an ongoing battle between the forces of good, who keep the natural world alive, and the forces of evil, who wish to destroy it. When a teenage girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she teams up with an elite band of warriors and a crew of comical, larger-than-life figures, to save their world… and ours.
