Currently working on a singing scene, using the song Stay With Me (Baby) by Lorraine Ellison.
I’m going for an emotional and dramatic performance, with the lady singing for her lost lover in the audience, making it a personal performance for her.
Refining the timing and movement at the moment before heading into polish.
This was the last animation I did at Animation Mentor, finally getting round to uploading it.
I wanted to do a run cycle as my showreel was missing one, and thought of a tired jogger catching his breath to give the shot more personality – My Mentor (Sean Sexton) recommended I move the run forward in space, and then invert the forward translation of the main character control to turn it into an in-place cycle after.
Here is my Class 5 Progress Reel – showing all my animated shots for the first 5 classes of Animation Mentor. I’ve really enjoyed getting into character acting. Still have a lot more to learn. Only 1 more class to go!!
I’ve put together a long overdue update to my showreel, removing some older work, and including 2 shots from Animation Mentor. Most of the content is still fairly old work though, so I need to include more recent work in the next update.
