I’ve long been a fan of David O’Reilly’s animation, as well as his theories of animation aesthetics. Here are 3 links to understand what I’m talking about:

- and http://www.davidoreilly.com/2009/08/basic-animation-aesthetics
HOWEVER — there’s some new guy just coming out of school somewhere in Israel called Eran Hilleli. He was written up in Motionographer for his outstanding short called Between Bears. Check it out HERE and don’t forget to click the link and watch a lovely piece.
