It's the Season 3 premiere of the DIY Animation Show! ...and what better way to kick off this Season with none other than Animation director & Experimentalist, Jocie Juritz! Professionally, Jocie crafts beautiful 2D animated projects with a gorgeous hand-made look. She specialises in PSAs and documentaries dealing with pertinent topics, interesting factoids, even book trailers, and teaches animation classes in her spare time. In her personal work, you’ll find slice-of-life gifs, featuring her cats, plants, and other joyful things. We were drawn to her colourful, soulful work, and enjoyed an engaging, thoughtful conversation with her, discussing animation on a fundamental, artistic level. It’s like a soothing balm for the creative soul. We first spoke to her in 2016, and so enjoyed our conversation Timeless insights still hold up two years later. Today, in Part 1 of Jocie’s interview, we discuss: - Designing movement and emotion with shapes - Emphasizing narrative over animation principles - Constructing the optimal gif - Freely using trial and error as a tool of development - Her approach to colour - And the one most vital thing Jocie thinks a DIY Animator needs This episode is an indie production from your hosts, Jessica Doll & Lauren Morse.
