Principles of Animation

The 12 basic principles of animation were developed by the 'old men' of Walt
Disney Studios, amongst them Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, during the
1930s. Of course they weren't old men at the time, but young men who were
at the forefront of exciting discoveries that were contributing to the
development of a new art form. These principles came as a result of reflection
about their practice and through Disney's desire to use animation to express
character and personality.
This movie is my personal take on those principles, applied to simple shapes.
Like a cube.
