All Rendery!

Whew! So I've been spending my waking hours finishing up this shot! Here's how the render turned out, though I know I'll want to go back and tweak more things when I look at this later. I'm pretty fried right now, hope you enjoy it though.

Here's where it was in blocking (One of several blocking passes! At this point I'm just trying to get Brett to buy off on the acting first. We went back and forth and there were a lot of different iterations at this stage.)

Here was some rough shot planning for it.
So there goes my term 4. Brett Coderre was awesome. Extremely particular about acting choices. I learned so much this term about working within a pose, text & subtext, etc. I must've watched this brilliant Doug Sweetland lecture a half dozen times. So much great info that it probably won't fully sink in until later.

After this is a week off. Then on to short film which I'm super pumped about! I've got a few solid ideas as to what I want to do, and I do know that I want it to be hand-drawn! Talk about biting off more than I could chew!

Hi Bobby,

That is a great animation.
One comment, for what it's worth, is that maybe you could push the mouth shapes a little more on the woman character as she's shouting in the audio clip.
Thats just a minor thing though and as I said before the animation is great!

Look forward to seeing your next piece.

Cheers


Jon

Wow that's awesome, Bobby. I like the little added extras you put in the rendered version like the depth of field changes and the cucumber face mask. I'm glad you were able to keep the pregnant lady's bump at the end.

Looking forward to your short!

Hey Bobby. Just saw your "you have to support me" clip. OMG, why have I not been following your blog before. Awesome animation. Love it. Can't wait to see your next piece.

Hey Bobby, awesome job on your shot, it came out really nice. I agree with the mouth shape note. Also a small note. In the first shot, the guy right after he exhales, he starts to shift his weight to screen right, and there is some funky stuff going on in the hip arcs. Maybe just clean that up if you go back into the shot. There are a few pops on the girls shoulders towards the end too, and the guys shoulders on the OTS shot get a bit spliny.
