Class 5 Week 8

So this week I'm still working out the main actions before I start polishing. It's still in stepped mode, so that explains the choppy-ness especially in the face. But most of the action is on 1s and 2s.

Next week I'll be going into spline and will start polishing! Also probably will have the start of the lip sync added as well. :)

Class 5 Week 7

So this week has been pretty fun with this shot. Just been setting more and more keys. So far the ideas are starting to come alive nicely. Just got more work to do on it. More things to try and refine.

Also this week we had yet another face pose to do.

Class 5 Week 6

It has been an awesome week for blocking! My mentor really liked the direction I was going in with my planning and had just a few notes on the direction for composition. I'm really excited to finally start seeing these characters come to life! :)

So here is my first blocking pass on this shot. There are still many weeks to come to refine this even more!

Also this week we had to do one more face pose :)

Class 5 Week 5

I'm soooo excited to get started on a new shot! My two person dialogue is finally here. So I chose to do the "Are you happy" clip from my three clips last week. Here's my planning for the shot.

Also for my video reference, my awesome fiance was able to help me out with the female portion of the acting. YAH! :) by the way, check out her cakes, they are sweet!

And finally, here's the layout animation for this shot! Thanks to Ben Delnat for modeling the inside of the Pixair airliner ;)
