what a pink elephant taught me about choreography (and animation)
One of my many interests includes doing computer animation one day (I’ve dabbled with it in the past but nothing good enough I can put on my blog yet). So naturally I pay close attention to children’s animated shows and one that really stands out in my mind is Pocoyo. Elly, the pink elephant on the show is one of the funniest characters to me and the shows creator’s did an awesome job of really accentuating her expressions and choreography for the win. If you too have an interest in doing your own animations and content and need some ideas or inspiration check out the show and how it uses camera angles, music and dynamic movements to make superbly entertaining scenes – even for adults interested in animation. LOL. When my daughter was younger she didn’t like these silly type shows very much but luckily she watched them enough for me to catch this one. Here is a link to a couple of minutes of Elly on youtube. The entire show does a great job with animation, so check out some of the other characters too if you’re interested. Obviously this show is designed for kids but some of the ideas will carry over to different type content.
