Funny Reference

As I said I would post my reference for the anim jam. It's pretty ridiculous.
Also here is it with sound: colter_anim_jam

I'll post my slip animation soon for one last critique.

Thanks again everyone it was fun having class with you all. 

Special thanks to Victor! Thanks for helping me out in this class. I really appropriate it.

Anim Jam Reminder: "An Unexpected Guest"

Hope you all can find some time to bang out 100 frames on this theme for next Wednesday, our last class.  I'm working on mine right now!

Notes addressed.

Hi Victor,

I got around to do your notes, I still have to do another pass on the lids and I'm not completely convinced on what is going on with the hands.

Is the ending part working better now with the beats?
Should I put a little bit of overlap in the hair?
I'm looking for more polishing notes if you have time.

Thank you

Shot Updates

so far focused on the back end of the shot and any quick notes. still addressing some bigger notes such as reach in and touch of turkey and head accents. after watching a few times seems many of the actions need more easing but hopefully the timing has stayed true? any feedback appreciated. thanks!

Notes Addresed

Hi Victor,

I got around to to all your notes from last class.

I did the transitions and tight up the timing a little bit.

Please let me know what you think.

Polishing Update


I've been addressing the notes on my lip sync, which I thiiiiink I've gotten in there.  I've also started on the eyelid shaping.

As I'm polishing, I'd really appreciate your guidance overall on anything in the shot that's really glaring at the moment.  Frames 83-100ish are also giving me some trouble, in the eyes.  I'm going for a slow look up, but right now you can see the irises widening too much.  O_o

**Oh, and I just realized the cup isn't lined up with his lip in the beginning, along with a hitch in the arc as the elbow extends from his mouth, which I'll be fixing!

Thank you in advance!



I think I've addressed all notes (except for the eye lids being a little footbally toward the end, ran out of time) and the arms are still popping.  Other than that, I would love to get feedback to see if everything is working.  I'm down for nit picky things that will plus it.

Thank you in advance! Ellen

Anim Jam topics

Hi Class,
I've been building a list of topics for the week 11 "anim jam", which is coming up next class.  Here are a few that we will choose from randomly, but let me know if you have any topics you think would be good to throw in the mix!  Remember, the idea is for a 100-frame clip, interpreting the topic however you choose.  Blocking is fine.  Here's what I've got so far:

Make a wish
Bad hair day
Circle of life
Last night I dreamed...
Special delivery
Blind date
The latest tech trend
An unexpected guest 
Nicholas Cage
Unnecessary sequel
Alien encounter

Looking forward to your ideas!

Cody, revised blocking ideas

Hey Victor!

I've been trying a bunch of different gestures for my shot, trying to find the right combination. I uploaded a version I like to Syncsketch (without the ending of the shot). My main worry is that it feels too busy, and/or the gesture during "nobody asked me" isn't reading like I'd like it to. What do you think? Do you have any ideas?

Thank you very much!
