Class 4 - Week 5

Hey guys,

here it is, the final Office-Guy animation. For this week last least :)
The last days I was searching for audio-clips and it is so hard to find the right lines. Hope I can decide which one I'm going to take. I also try to find a few more but don't really know where to look anymore...
So, here is the last Stewie-Clip for the next month. Now it's all about Bishop.

Cheers

Class 4 - Week 4

Hey Everyone,

here another update of my Office Guy shot. Went into splines and added a tie and some more paper. Next week is another week of polishing. After that we have to upload some audio clips for our first monologue. Really looking forward to get Bishop. Until next time, have a great week :)

Cheers

Class 4 - Week 3

Hey Guys,

quick update on my office guy shot. I added a lot of breakdowns and also refined the paper animation more. The next pass will be going into spline and than clean the curves one by one.
Hope you guys check my shot next week again :)
Thanks for reading / watching

Cheers

Class 4 - Week 2

Hey Everyone,

first week of blocking is over. Overall I'm not 100% happy with my shot but I hope this will change during the next pass of blocking plus. I have to try to get more panic out of the character at the end. We will see how this works out :)
Yesterday we had the Saturday-Make-Up Session with Kenny Roy. He talked a bit about the way you approach a lip-synch shot. It was really interesting to hear his work flow on that topic. 
Besides blocking I'm trying to narrow down audio clips for the next shot. The frame limit is giving me a hard time, my favorite ones are 20-25 frames to long. Maybe I find a way to shorten them a bit.
Ok than, here is my first pass of blocking. Hope the idea is getting through clear and stay tuned for the next pass

Cheers

Class 4 - Week 1

Hey Everyone,

after a nice week off from any animation related work AM opened his doors again. Honestly after being kind of lazy for a few days I was recharged and ready to do some new animations. 
OK than, Class 4 has started and this term its about acting. The first assignment we have will be with the Stewie character and than we get bishop to animate our first monologue / dialogue shot.
My new Mentor is Dana Boadway, and you can check her reel here and here. And further more, here you can see on which projects she worked on. What is really nice about this term is the my Q&A time is on Tuesday at 8pm (German time). So for a change I don't have to stay up until 3am in the morning, which I'm still going to do to get my work done :)
So for my first assignment for this class I planed out something like this


Hope that Dana is ok with my idea and than the blocking will start next week. Can't wait to set the first keys :)

Have a great on and until next time

Cheers Matthias
