Pt. 2 of how I animate a scene from Wolf (http://www.wolfmovie.com) ..the process!
Get more feedback and tips in the forums: www.wolfmovie.com/wolfforum See ya there!
[EDIT] To answer some questions/concerns:

Flipping is a time-testedway of getting the job done and has been since the beginnings of Disney. It's usually used in conjunction with backlighting (such as with a lightbox). It has the benefit of allowing the animator to see everything moving. If you rely too much on just using a lightbox it can flatten your animation or make it too mechanical. Flipping allows you a preview of how it'll move, before you capture on a camera to test things.
But it can be a back and forth process with the backlight, it's another tool in the animator's arsenal! (for the record, I "flip" in Flash as well, by scrolling through the timeline!)

This tutorial was actually done on a really nice animation table that was loaned me by a friend, and yes, there was a backlight! I didn't use it since I was showcasing flipping in this tutorial.

This had already been keyed/roughly animated and tested before I began inbetweens.

And yes I am trying to follow the Silver Sky style for this movie. My own art may have its own look (though I am still learning) but for someone else's movie it's important to stay on model for consistency.

As for POE: hey I am famous on the internet :D

THERE! Tried to cover some of the bigger questions, sorry I haven't been on more! Thanks so much for all the nice comments and thanks to those who provided suggestions and feedback!
