Week 1, Class 5 - 48 Percent Lip Sync (Blocking & Vid Ref)

Lip sync is hard.  There's a whole different level to lip sync that goes well beyond just being a good animator and delves into the linguistic land of phonemes, dip-thongs and co-articulation.  If your head is spinning, I know how you feel, mine was too.  And while I think the lip sync to my shot is off to a successful start, I know there's a looooong way to go.  But we'll get there.

Here is what I handed in for video reference, with the audio edited in.

Next week: Refining, something new

Here's a couple of close-up screen tests for my current shot.

Week 6 - Intro To Dialogue (Video Reference)

So, it's been narrowed down to these three choices from the selection of audio clips below (see "Getting a jump on Week 6"). I know, I know...you might as well just hand me the Oscar right now, my acting is that good! I still haven't decided which of these three I will be animating, but that will all be settled by next week's assignment.

Be sure to check out my buddy, Gene - also a fine actor - who apparently has a better handle on how to act "womanly" (something Crystal feels I am severly lacking):
