The 12 Principles of Animation

The 12 Principles of Animation as described by Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston in their book “The Illusion of Life”. Since it can be hard for starting animators to find resources, and the resources that are out there don’t go very in depth, Alan Becker decided to start a video series dedicated to each of the 12 Principles of Animation!

1. Squash & Stretch 

2. Anticipation 

3. Staging 

4. Straight Ahead & Pose to Pose 

5. Follow Through & Overlapping Action 

6. Slow In & Slow Out 

7. Arcs 

8. Secondary Action 

9. Timing 

10. Exaggeration 

11. Solid Drawing 

12. Appeal
