Class 4 Shot 2 Blocking

Sun ,14/11/2010

Fifth pass of blocking completed in a week, but still trying to figure the timing of gestures, and I probably have to tone down the body at the beginning too

Class 4 Shot 2 Planning

Sun ,07/11/2010

This past week was about planning our first dialogue (or rather monologue) shot
We had to pick 3 lines of dialogue and do video referencing for all 3, as well as do some planning thumbnails
I’ll wait until I get my mentor’s critique on this before choosing which clip I will animate
