Sat. May 30: Animation Resources Discord Party

Animation Resources Discord

With quarantines and shelter in place orders sweeping the globe, it’s important to stay in touch with the creative community. Animation Resources is doing its part by launching a Discord server for animators, cartoonists and illustrators.

What is Discord? If you are under 30, you probably already know. If you are a little bit older than that, here is a quick description of what Animation Resources Discord Server is all about…

Discord is a free chat app that supports video, voice chat and text chat. Discord servers are divided into channels, which all have their own subject or theme of discussion. Members are assigned roles which helps everyone keep track of who’s who. The Animation Resources Discord channel is a virtual meeting place for our supporters. You can meet other Animation Resources members, talk with the people behind the scenes at our organization, and attend lectures and screenings— all without leaving your home. It’s free and open to everyone in the creative community. If you’d like more info on how Discord works, see this article: What is Discord?

Chuck Jones Bar Sheets


One of the biggest mysteries about the way cartoons were made in the classic era is musical timing. The number of frames an action would take to perform was planned along with the music that would accompany the movement. This synergy of timing and music is a big part of why golden age cartoons are so much more rhythmic and synchronized than modern animation. Davey Jarrell has reverse engineered Chuck Jones’s notes for "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" and he will break it all down and explain how it works. The program takes place in the Animation Resources Discord Server and it starts at 5:30pm PST on May 30th. Don’t miss it!
