INTRO TO CHARACTER ANIMATION
This is the final project for this module so challenge yourself by animating something physically or emotionally difficult. Choose a 6-10 second audio clip (more or less) character-driven, dialogue-driven audio.
The path that lead you to this stage has fully prepared you for tackling anything as far as completing a shot on a production. Remember that the average animation quota for a TV show is around 750-1000 frames per week, so begin the process of pushing yourself to finish the work faster. The trick is to do this without losing any quality. Complete the animation as fast as you can and with as much quality as possible and you will see an improvement in speed, as I’m sure you already have with the previous exercises.
Find a challenging reference clip and use the audio to produce an animation sequence.
Remember the fundamentals. Composition, staging, performance, etc.
Try to improve your speed.
Use the same professional process as before. Thumbnails based on reference, layout, blocking, all of these should be passes and submitted for review. Once your blocking has been approved it's up to you as to how many submissions you make along the way. If you feel you need to have feedback, feel free to submit for review.
This is the final project for INTRO TO CHARACTER ANIMATION so use this opportunity to create your best work and ultimately to vastly improve your portfolio.
