The Animator’s Prayer: A Poem by Andrew Goh

With this being the last week of finals, we posted up a beautiful poem of a prayer to keep all the animators. Today’s feature is a bit different from the rest but a close friend of mine and a crazy brilliant and ridiculously fast and versatile animator, Andrew Goh wrote a prayer for animators that are still facing their final countdown before deadlines.

The Animator’s Prayer by Andrew Goh

Our artist, who roughs in extremes,

Hallowed be thy keys,

Thy breakdowns come,

Thy in-betweens done,

On Pegs, as it is in Autodesk Maya ©2015

Give us this day our dailies

And Forgive us our rotoscopes,

as we forgive those who mo-cap,

And lead us not into procrastination

but deliver us from crunch-time,

That’s a wrap.
