This animation is based on a line from a screenplay I wrote last year. I performed the peice myself, wanting to get more involved in the acting process of animation instead of just taking a sound bite from somewhere. I knew the context and subtext surrounding the action which helped with this beat. From there I always like to act and film the perfomance then go on to study the movement from a technical and artistic stand point. From the refrence I quickly create a rough fondation of the basic mouth shapes and keys. Gradually I move further and further from the refrence as the animation evolves.
