Animated Performance shows how a character can seemingly 'come to life' when their movements reflect the emotional or narrative context of their situation: when they start to 'perform'. The many tips, examples and exercises from a veteran of the animation industry will help readers harness the flexibility of animation to portray a limitless variety of characters and ensure that no two performances are ever alike. More than 300 color illustrations demonstrate how animal and fantasy characters can live and move without losing their non-human qualities and interviews with Disney animators Art Babbitt, Frank Thomas, Ollie Johnston and Ellen Woodbury make this a unique insight into bringing a whole world of characters to life. New to the second edition: A new chapter with introductory exercises to introduce beginner animators to the the world of animated acting; dozens of new assignments and examples focusing on designing and animating fantasy and animal characters.

This research effort assessed military users' judgments about different versions of the Unit Performance Assessment System's (UPAS') performance feedback capabilities in after action reviews (AARs) for Simulation Networking (SIMNET) training. Interactive demonstrations with SIMNET training personnel and operational unit personnel were performed to determine the utility of the feedback materials generated by UPAS. Specific findings indicated that (a) the slide show method of exercise replay was preferred over an animated rerun method; (b) Battle Snapshot displays were more likely to be used than Exercise Timeline or Battle Flow displays; and (c) divergent opinions existed regarding the value of certain displays.

Other network configurations and data representations were also explored to lower the mean error during training and to produce more promising arm motions. The results of this research indicate that many of the simpler techniques that have been suggested in the neural net literature simply don't work for automatic motion control. However, more sophisticated techniques may show some promise, even though the results of this research are inconclusive."

Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject Art - Photography and Film, grade: 1, University of Kent, language: English, abstract: The thesis investigates the reasons and motivations behind our emotional and affective responses to the animated character. In a form suffused with a self-conscious display of artifice and fabrication, there is a paradox of how we can respond to the animated figure in much the same way as a live actor and real life individual. The stop-motion form in particular provides doubt for engagement to occur, yet even with new and improving advancements of technology, this self-conscious, sometimes rough form holds a firm place in cinematic culture today. To fully understand the justifications and limitations of our engagement, I appeal to the motivations and skills of the animator in designing a character and making it a 'performer.' The study has revealed the goal of an animator is for believability more so than realism; ensuring every nuance of the character encourages an active spectator who is willing to suspend their disbelief for the duration of the film in order to enjoy and engage with it.
