One to bookmark: Reference! Reference!

See? We weren’t joking about the mustache. You can find the dwarf on your own, though.

Need a video of a Japanese man adjusting his mustache? Or a semi-naked dwarf getting up off the floor? Promising new animation reference library Reference! Reference! will be exactly what you need*.

The site features hundreds of free videos, ranging from facial expressions to walk cycles and combat moves, each categorised by the gender and body type of the actor, and filmed front and side on.

Each video features an on-screen frame count, and plays twice automatically, although as far as we can see, there is currently no option to loop or download videos.

Still, a useful reference source, and one to keep an eye on.
