Channel info - Hi! My name is Tim Thomas, but my friends call me TimTom. I make cartoons! Send me an email if you want to get in touch. (You gotta click the button down below to see my address)
I'm switching PO Boxes right now, but you'll be able to send me mail again soon!
Software I use:
- I record audio in Audition
- I level it using Levelator
- I animate with ToonBoom Harmony
- I edit video with Premiere and AfterEffects
- I make thumbnails in Photoshop
Hardware I use:
- Wacom Cintiq 13 HD drawing tablet
- I record audio with a Sure SM7B mic, a Cloudlifter, and a Scarlet 2i4
But that stuff is expensive. DON'T SPEND LOTS OF MONEY ON EQUIPMENT IF YOU'RE JUST STARTING!
The Blue Snowball is an ok mic for a relatively low price, and you can get a drawing tablet for less than $100 on Amazon. Audacity is good free audio software, and Pencil2D is free animation software that should be good enough to learn with.
Have a great day! 🙂

Channel info - Bloop Animation Studios is all about teaching animation filmmaking. On this channel we post tutorials, video essays and animated short films.
My name is Morr.
I wanted Bloop Animation to not only be a studio, but also a place to share the process of making films.
I love teaching, and I enjoy the effect my tutorials and courses have on other filmmakers and animators, who are often pushed into making their own creations.
This is a place for both beginners and veterans. I know many people want to make awesome things but don’t always know where to start (or how). Some people just can’t find the time to follow their passion project.
That is what we're about - making animation, sharing our process, and inspiring action. I hope that sharing my journey with you will help you find yours

Channel info - 2D Animation 101 is a Cartoon Animation Training Channel for anyone who wants to learn how to bring their cartoon characters and stories to life.
Doing research through YouTube, I learned a couple of techniques here and there, but what I couldn't get, (after doing some cartoon animations) was a compelling result. All my 2d animations were just exercises that got me nowhere. No shares. No views.
Then I started to learn about filmmaking, how to actually produce a feature film, how to compose amazing shots, how to do casting, voice recording, animating, doing post production, adding music, sound effects, sound design. And most important of all: How to write a good story.
So I finally decided to put all the resources together in a couple of tutorials that guide you through an easy to follow step-by-step process.
I would be adding training courses each month, every time covering different techniques for specific areas in the production of your feature 2d animation films.
