Almost there!

Here is the next pass of my shot. I would call it refining/polishing. I still have a lot of work to do (tracking my arcs, cleaning up the keys, tweaking the timing, adding all the nuances until I can't take it anymore.) But, I'm almost there...I think.

Here is the next pass of my pantomime shot. Due to popular demand, I brought back the kiss. I feel it added a little something. I've also tried to tone down the beginning a bit more. I'm going for more naturalistic acting to contrast with the cartoony acting at the end of the shot. Next pass is the epic journey from stepped to spline tangents... wish me luck.


Pantomime Assignment: Blocking

Hey Guys,

Here is my blocking pass. Basically a rough pass at timing and posing with breakdowns and a few inbetweens. Next week, I will have a re-blocking pass, moving into refining. Thanks for stopping by.



Hey Everyone,

I'm going to make this a work in progress blog again. So, first off, My mentor is Melanie Cordan and she is..... AWESOME! I feel very fortunate to have a mentor that has a wide variety of experience. Also, she has to be one of the most enthusiastic mentor's I've had at AM and it's terrific. Her energy is threw the roof and it really feels like she want's to push our stuff to the next level. So Excited!

Second, Here is my planning for my first assignment, "It's ALIVE!" The whole point of this exercise is to develop two distinctive emotional beats in a shot. Also, keep it simple and focus on the acting. I had gone threw a range of idea's and came up with these two. After a lot of help from my mentors and my peers I decided to go with the first idea on the video. I felt it had the best contrast in emotions and it would allow me to play with subtle animation, something I haven't explored yet.

Next week, Blocking!
