James Baxter Animation Webinar at YouTube

On 30 June at I hosted a live animation webinar with legendary Disney and DreamWorks animator James Baxter.  James began his animation career on Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and has since worked on dozens of animated films, designing and supervising many memorable characters.  In this two hour webinar, James demonstrates how to take a traditional 2D animation scene from start to finish.

The webinar takes students through a hand-drawn animation demonstration, with a Q&A throughout, as James takes questions from the audience.

James was the animation lead on Belle on Beauty and the BeastRafiki on The Lion King, and Quasimodo on The Hunchback of Notre Dame.  He won the Windsor McCay Award at the 2018 Annie Awards, and has worked for Walt Disney Animation Studios, DreamWorks Animation and Netflix. He is widely regarded as one of the masters of the craft of animation.

On a personal note, James was my supervising animator on "The Road to El Dorado", where he designed and supervised the character of "Tulio".
