Class 4: Week 5


I'm SO excited to be moving on to the two person dialogue shot! I've picked 3 audio choices and await the advice of my mentor on which to go with. I tried to pick some clips that were fairly subtle and heart-felt so I can really test out my animation chops and do something that doesn't feel animated. I am leaning towards Audio 01 as my favorite clip. So, here are my 3 dialogue choices and the two face poses I did from last week.

This week we start planning and blocking on our shot. I'll post my final audio choice and some planning soon. Have a great week!

Class 4: Week 4 Part 2

Hey guys and gals,

Here is my dialogue shot as promised. There are still things I would like to tweak but its time to move on to two characters. I think I found some good audio clips to work with so I will be posting those at the end of this week along with 2 new face poses. Talk to you all again soon!

Class 4: Week 4

Man...week 4??!?!?!

Whats going on? This class is going so fast! In eight more weeks I will be starting on my short film!

I can't WAIT to start on my two person dialogue shot and I have been trying to find some good audio clips this week. I've decided I want to do something a little more subtle this time around and really want to put some genuine, heart-felt acting into this shot. So, hopefully that happens.

Here is my assingment from last week. Again, we had to do two face poses. Also, we finished up on our one person dialogue shot. I'll post my finished shot as soon as I get home today. Stay Tuned!

Class 4: Week 2


Another great week at AM! I'm a huge fan of my mentor this term...Keith Sintay. His Q and A's are a TON of fun and he definately knows his stuff! This week we did a polish pass on our facial animation. Next week is our last week to work on this shot and the we start two person dialogue!! I'm super excited about that but trying to focus on this shot and finish it up. Here is my polish pass for this week. Also, we were asked to get two pictures and copy the facial expression with the bishop character. Here's what I came up for that.

Class 4 : Week 1 END


Week 1 was AWESOME!! Getting back into lipsync and facial animation has been a blast. I started off the week watching an AMAZING 2 hour lecture by Jason Schleifer all about the Do's and Dont's of lipsync which is definately one of my favorite lectures so far. Then, I spent the rest of the week working on blocking in the facial animation for my dialogue. I spent most of the time trying to get the lipsync to match up with the audio and will spend the next few weeks polishing and adding more character to the face. Here is my blocking and planning drawings for this week. Have a great week everyone!!

Class 4 : Week 1!!!!!


Thought I would post a quick update!! Yesterday was our first day back at AM after a week break. I am SO excited for Class 4 and digging deep into dialogue and advanced acting!

My mentor this term is Keith Sintay. Some films he has worked on include: Pocahontas, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Mulan, Tarzan, Sinbad, Open Season, Surf's Up, Monster House and I am Legend!! I'm very excited and honored to learn from him. He has a very impressive reel that you can check out here:

I am so pumped up to add dialogue and facial animation to my shot from last term! I'll post at the end of this week when I have my first pass done for that.
