Let's Do Nothing!

My good pal and animation legend, Tony Fucile has a new children's book and it goes on sale tomorrow! Run..er..click...don't walk to Amazon or where ever books are sold to buy Let's Do Nothing!

He even created a trailer. So awesome!

tony on applying animation to making the book -

"Making this book was kind of like animating, but without
the in-betweens. In an animation shot, we call it the “storytelling
pose”— the single visual idea that must be conveyed to the audience,
to connect them with what you’re trying to communicate. When you
animate, you usually begin with that dominant pose or poses in mind.
Let’s Do Nothing! is really a series of key animation storytelling poses.
It scratches that animator itch in me that I’m afraid will never go away."

congratulations Tony!
