Rebels Recon #7: Inside "Empire Day" With Andi 'Endless Cool Star Wars Tee Shirts' Guiterrez



The very nice Andi Guiterrez arrives with even more Star Wars tee shirts this week : )
In Rebels Recon #7, StarWars.com talks with the creators of the Star Wars Rebels episode "Empire Day," examines the animation process, and shows a special preview of “Gathering Forces.”

At the Art and Science of Lucasfilm panel in partnership with the San Francisco Film Society Education, Keith Kellogg, animation supervisor, discussed the process of bringing characters to full animated life. First, they create a full skeleton and create real joints. Animators pull on these joints to move the characters; this is tested by manipulating different body parts, facial features, walking, and running.
Plus Pablo Hidalgo, Dave Filoni (with cool ass jacket) and mynocks and fyrnocks!
