Anticipation & Overlapping Action   --General Review - Action Analysis Class of March 12th, 1936

Don Graham introduces this Thursday evening Action Analysis Class as the "last class for a while," and it seems that the next classes were held in July, some four months later.

In this class he discusses "the work covered to date," concentrating on anticipation and overlapping action, with examples from Alpine Climbers, and referencing Dave Hand's lecture two weeks earlier.

Johnny Cannon pantomimes overlapping actions, and we hear from George Goepper, Jack Hannah, Jack Campbell, Paul Allen, Riley Thompson, Jim Algar and Bill Shull.
Is Paul Allen questioning Fergie's animation?

I remember the discussions while animation on Vahalla in the 80's, on overlapping actions and follow-thru. They were especially mixed up as the term "overlap" had been used to mean follow-thru. It took years to rid folks of this bad habit, and some never could get used to it...

This is one of the best among the Action Analysis classes.

Concidering that George Geopper wound up at Hannah Barbera, I think it's kind of ironic that he is in a class for something like this!

What do you mean by that ?

Lots of good animators "ended up at Hanna Barbera".

(Irv Spence, Ken Muse, Ray Patterson, Carlo Vinci, Ed Love, Hicks Lokey, Art Babbitt, Dick Lundy , Charles Nichols, Iwao Takamoto ... can I stop now ? I can go on, but you get the point ? )

They did have a fine collection of talent over there, for sure! But the process of Limited Animation completley eliminates that need for a class such as this.
