Overview: MikeJungbluth and Tim Borrelli will deliver the introduction to the GDC 2014 Animation Bootcamp. Jalil Sadool will present Achieving a Believable Performance. The animation industry is moving and changing faster than we ever expected. The number of good animators is increasing every year, and finding a stable job in this competitive field is much harder than compared to just a decade ago. What, therefore, gives an animator this extra edge? We often misunderstand good animation for simply good motion, and forget that our main focus as an animator is to fool an audience into believing. During the next 45 minutes to an hour, we will talk about the "believable performance" and the little things that we tend to forget, but which are incredibly essential in order for a character to come to life.
