-This video was created for a class I was teaching. It shows some of my process when creating a shot. The steps show what we receive from layout, the thoughts behind ref & planning, blocking, and taking the shot all the way to final

These are some guides I did specifically for the Green Lantern Animated Series. I learned most of my knowledge of CG camera lenses while working on Clone Wars (with Maya). I could see the rules being different on a live action set.
Also, note that this indicates stylistic choices I wanted on Green Lantern. Tron Uprising, which I think is a beautiful looking show, tends to use a lot more wide angle lenses than we did, which is what gives it that extra “anime” look.
If you work in traditional animation, you probably don’t have to think much about lens choice - unless you work in anime, or Avatar the Last Airbender.
396 photos merged into one image using the lighten blending mode in photoshop. I think this one pretty much covers the colour spectrum of sunsets, lacking only the darker reds. I can’t get enough of this technique!
