About the author
I’m Morr, an animator/filmmaker based in NYC.
After graduating from the School of Visual Arts (majoring in 3D animation), I started my career as a character animator, freelancing in various studios around town. Despite loving what I do, I felt like it’s not enough to work for other people, and that I HAVE to keep doing my own thing.
What started as a YouTube tutorial channel has quickly evolved into the Bloop Animation blog, a platform on which I can share my work with a great audience of animators and creative artists. On the site, I documented my journey of making LIFT UP (my second animated short) and shared many video tutorials about every step of the making process. I truly hope that sharing my journey will inspire people to follow their passion. Thanks for checking out the book, hope you’ll like it!
“Bloop Animation is a great online resource for all aspects of animation. Their “Animation for Beginners” page is the friendliest, most accessible one we found.”
