Dialogue wisdom by John K.

As an animator, it's important to learn how to analyze dialogues, how to analyze speech, even the pauses between the words (which, in my opinion, are more important than analyzing the words themselves, simply because the character actually comes from there). Like Ed Hooks says "Thoughts lead to emotions, and emotions lead to actions".

Here's a nice article by John K on what makes a good dialogue. It's from the perspective of dialogue writers but gives us a good insight on how to analyze them too, especially after reading the page below of the book ("The writer and the screen" by Wolf Peter Rilla) he was referring to .
