Animation Resource Search 2010-10-13 00:18:22
Hey guys I'm looking for additional animation sources or sites to look at and research on since I'm thinking of getting into animating for newgrounds. This could be other flash forums or animation related,sites, or reference materials that could be helpful to those starting out.
Feel free to post your own research here as well or link it if you would like to add to this topic.
I'll start off with the research I came up with so far
Scribd? what is that?
it is a document-sharing website which allows users to post documents of various formats, and embed them into a web page using its iPaper format.
In other words a social publishing site, where people share original writings and documents.
Articles and magazines
Story-boarding & thought processes
My animation books
-some books worth checking out in the above links as well as good books to buy if your into animation.

The Animators Survival Kit by: Richard Williams(available to read above)
-nice informative animation book put together by Richard Williams the animation director of the movie "Who Framed Roger Rabit. Its pretty funny to read but allot of the content is technical so if you wanted step by step info its lacking but its useful to those who want to animate both 2D and 3D.
