Example text

The direction of both actions occurs along the same line, so when one object exerts a force on a second object, that second body exerts a reciprocal force on the first along that line. When a horse is hauling a heavy cart, for example, the force the horse exerts on the load results in the load moving forward. However, the force that the horse exerts is reciprocated by the force that the load exerts on the horse. 9 Every movement has an equal and opposite action. The horse pulling a load exerts forward movement, the load exerts backward forces.

Without this force, matter would not bind together to form atoms, atoms could not form molecules, and the structures that form all the recognizable material could not exist. Still, as important as this force is to our very existence, its implications may be of relatively limited value to us as animators attempting to gain more insight into action and dynamics. Gravity Unlike the other forces of nature for which range is limited, the range of gravity is universal. Its effects can be felt across the universe.

All good comedy is a matter of timing. In this regard it is easier to establish what is good timing or not. If the timing of a gag is wrong, it simply won’t be funny. However, this is easy to say but a good deal harder to explain or teach. Good comic timing is not a simple matter of saying that a successful pratfall is funny if it’s over 12 frames, whereas one over 16 frames is unfunny. Good comedy acting is a matter of experience, not a formulaic approach to timing. It is difficult to learn and takes a great deal of practice and experimentation.
