7. Wrap-Up: The Amazing World of Gumball


Congratulations on coding your Amazing World of Gumball story There are many ways to bring a story to life including using both code and computer animation.

No matter how you tell a story it take creativity, persistence and hard work to make it happen.

Check out how the animators of the Amazing World of Gumball TV series describe Working on the show.

[Upbeat Jingle] This is Yannis.

This is Juan Pedro.

And we are animators in the Amazing World of Gumball.

Gumball yeah.

Now, let's see some more cuts from our art department.

Basically we are drawing all day every day.

So I suppose this is the bets part of the job We are doing the key animation.

The key process of the animation in our TV show.

There are a lot of 2D characters in our show.

So it's very heavy roll in the studio Three two one I would say my favorite thing about being an animator.

Is drawing in this case in 2D animation.

Thinking about how to make the animation the motion look better of the characters and the way they act.

Draw a lot being focused in one scene doing hours and see the result at the end, is like oh! These characters are alive.

[Marker Pen Squeak Noises] We are working every time on one particular, one single shot of the whole episode which is composed of hundreds of shots.

You don't see what happens before and after.

You know it, you have it in mind but you don't see it properly put all together.

When you put all the things together and you watch..

It works And then yeah, if it works it is better.

[Laughing] Sometimes it doesn't work but this is the best part to see the whole episode together.

This is the best part.

[Sucking Noises] Ah!

It's exhausting Yeah, It's exhausting but the reward at the end is so good that , pfft the worst is the best at the same time.

This is perfect What's your favorite character?

My favorite character is Darwin.

The same, the same as me.

The same character.

what the what?

[Gasps] Really?

But not my favorite to animate.

My favorite to animate is Gumball because he has a lot of possibilities and he has a lot of expressions.

New expressions every episode.

He is very flexible Even when its a very flat character you can do a lot of 3D movements and max feeling.

[Laughing] [Shatter] I prefer Darwin because Darwin is easier to animate.

[Laughing] You prefer him because he is more interesting because he's got a body and et cetera.

But mine has no body.

Darwin has no body.

So he is like easier to animate.

And he is really, really cute.

So at the same time he is naive and cute.

So that is why he is my favorite character actually.

We're doin' what we can.

We enjoy it while we're kids.

We enjoy while there's still time.

To make the most of it.

[Crunch] [Upbeat Jingle] If you want to keep coding encourage your teacher to run a CS First club at your school.

And, you can even explore the other themes on your own.

Until next time, have fun creating and coding.
