Showtime Lipsync

Here is he completed, and polished, version of this latest lip sync animation I worked on. This exercise proved to be a turning point for me - I had so many moments of clarity and discovery along the way, such as how muscles in the face fire and their specific timing and feeling, how to automatically get pretty good arcs by focusing on natural motion based on solid body mechanics, putting into play mouth lip sync lessons learned from a Chalk Talks workshop I took with Disney Feature’s Malcon Pierce, and in general, how to focus on the feeling of animation and energy, and sell it with my choices. I feel like I have set a new normal for myself, and can continue to learn and get better! I feel a lot more confident animating in 3D space now, and it will only get better and more specific!
