Designing Creatures for Animation

by

Expanding on the curriculum for the Animat Habitat studio series: Creating Creatures for Animation, with a two-part introduction to creature design, starting with character design. Characters are the life of a story. Stories work because of theory of mind ― the ability to put ourselves in the minds, and experience the subjective feelings, of the characters. The wild places and the animals that live in them have character and a role to play in stories, too. May more stories give life to wilderness.
