For the next assignment for Spring 2018 Intro to Acting class at Animation Collaborative, we did another one person dialogue - but this time, it was to be fully animated, mouth lip synced and all. For this exercise,. I chose a line from Innerspace - Martin Short freaking out. This is my rough blocking towards the beginning of the project.
In the second video, I started doing more draw overs and feeling out his emotions. The posing got stronger and more interesting.
The third video is after class critique revision notes. I was to hold longer on the character pausing for the "shut up" line, and move directly into staring at the top of the swaying Jenga tower - because the middle part was just too much motion and eye darting.I think it is a stronger piece now but I do have lots to learn! Starting got really consider the character and honesty and clarity in my work - trying to find ways to NOT over animate things. Seeking ways to do "less is more" in my work.
