    Animation is Visual Music

    We are in for a treat! This is a special blog post written by Carlos Baena (Pixar / Paramount Pictures / Animation Mentor Co-founder). Carlos is a 15-year animation veteran and is most notably known for his work on some of our favorite Pixar characters. You can see his animation work through Luigi and Guido from Cars, Skinner from Ratatouille, and Spanish Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story 3. Carlos is currently working on two personal projects.

    Today, Carlos walks you through how music can add some interesting unique beats to your animation. Enjoy, read and go animate!
