- Squash and Stretch - creates weight and volume to characters when it moves or makes any action.
- Anticipation - helps with major movement for characters e.g running, jumping or a changing expressions
- Staging - shows the audience a pose or action that a character is doing for attitude or mood to help with the story line
- Straight Ahead and pose to pose - Straight Ahead is the start of a first drawing/frame and keep drawing until the end drawing, whilst Pose to Pose is more planed out and intervals the key drawings/frames throughout the animation
- Following Through and Overlapping action - when the main body of a character stops so other parts can move e.g arms, leg, hair ect. And overlapping action is the change of direction when is moves or makes a action, for example when hair or clothes continues moving forward when a character makes a new move.
- Slow out and Slow in - when starting a action it need to be near the pose so slow in and slow out softens/smooths the action to become more life like
- Arcs - makes animation more natural actions and better flowing (like the pendulum animation above)
- Secondary action - were actions add to and enriches the main movement to make a character more dimensional
- Timing and Spacing - for this its best to at my first animation where time is for how long a object take to get to the other end and spacing is more how is gets there
- Exaggeration - is not a extreme movement to a character but more of a small movement like a walk, wink of a eye or turning a head
- Solid Drawing - is the basic form of three dimensions using volume, weight and illusion.
- Appeal - is clear drawings, readable designs and personality development that will engage audiences into the animation

Contextual studies has given me a early in sight of modernism and how we as a class will read it and understand it, for example what have touched is how German Expressionism in monster and twisted films where it gives of these dark themes & shows with shadows looming on the surface, then on how it is copied and/or tribute in new films in Hollywood. The task is a great help to get me ready to research before a essay.
