TEASER



bear animation on Vimeo

Have been pretty busy between working freelance and trying to get this shot tied down-- i knew it'd be a while until i would get it complete which is the way i wanted to present it, but i thought i owed it to everyone to show where it's at as of right now.
As far as critique, the one change i am going to make is a little bit of lip sync stuff arounf the "get outta here". Fast dialgoue can be tricky- and where i put the blink on the word "simple", i feel takes away from his expression and the sorta of "eureka" feeling i wanted, like, he's think "well isn't it obvious". I feel like taking the blink out, and closing the eyes before the accent on the I of "simple" and the overshooting them will give me a more truthful performance. so anyway, check it out and stay tuned!

Matt this looks truely wonderful. I love the weight you give your characters.

It's amazing how you keep the character alive in the beginning of the scene with all your subtle acting. ^^

Bobby, Vic: Thanks guys! hopefully it'll turn out ok!

Young blood: thanks dude!

its sick... simply sick.. the feeling that has been obtained by the carful attnetion to thing like the neck fat coupled with the posing... ohh that little slice of animation is like a eyegasim

andy said...

Wowee, it's looking incredible Matt! So many great things to admire and learn from, and what's more, we've been able to see exactly how you got there. It's been an inspiring ride so far, can't wait to see you bring it on home!

I think it's beautiful, but since no one has said anything about the blink, I've been looking at it again and again, and I think the blink should have been just before the "simple", or just after. When people concentrate and come to a conclusion their gaze is usually fixed and focused. I wouldn't blink at that moment.

Only because you mentioned it. It's very very pretty, and I loved watching it so many times!

Thats fun man.

Mr.Normal said...

Nice test, nice movement. This is a John Candy line and I can almost see him when I hear it. The main keys are great , the beginning tapping his lip is great but something is missing in the end. The aidio line " No way were gonna get out of here tonight " is delivered with resignation and a "knowing" dispair. As if this character expects it.

It feels almost like too much techie movement rather than just facial expression . I can feel the geometry of the keys , very much like much like Don Bluth animation. The animation should enhance the line and not dominate it. Great drawing.

Shane: wuddup foo!
Mr Normal-- hmmm, interesting thoughts. I probably should mention that this is only half the shot, so it's not all in context as of yet which might change things. I wanted some resignition of that it is "inevitable" and i am glad that it came across-- I needed that beat for the second half to work, it sorta ends his thought on that topic and then he goes into a joke. Maybe it won;t work though- i guess we'll see. thanks though for your comments man!
