Chapter 3. Principles of Animation > Anticipation of the Web

Anticipation of the Web

You can create anticipation in many ways. A pitcher, for example, has a windup that everyone recognizes as meaning that he is about to throw. Meanwhile, the batter signals his intentions by coiling for the swing and narrowing his focus on the pitcher.

A take is used to show a character having a violent reaction to an event—the face first looks calm and then squashes down tight before exploding into reaction. The squash of the face or body anticipates the violence of the reaction and prepares the audience for it. See Figure 3.17.
