Great reference materials...

Jon Hooper, and Steve Kellener have given us a gift on-line. At Animation Meat. These two guys have put together a great reference library for the animation industry to download and use to educate, learn, and share. There are a few materials that have floated around our industry for some years, handed down and over and back, these little treasures include the Walt Stanchfield notes, "Storyboarding the Simpson's way", and various model sheets to name a few. Well no more 10th generation Zerox copies, you can download these notes and many templates and other notes on Animation, plus a good selection of links.
