Week 4 - Blocking continued

This week has been pretty busy so I've just been adding more poses within my work from before. Most of the work I did this week was within the first 150 frames. I also added a background so it looks like the characters are on a sort of red carpet, for fun.

Week 3 - Blocking

This week I finished blocking out the entire piece of dialogue with the Captain America rig.
I took some advice from another student who suggested I have a second character stand in as the reporter. I posed the Mery rig and positioned it in the scene.

Week 2 - Rig and Timeline

My dialogue is from Chris Evans at the Age of Ultron premiere so I was thinking of using a male rig that was something similar to Chris Evans himself. Then I found this Captain America rig on CG trader. So I have to use it.


This is what a timeline I will be trying to follow.  

Sept 14th - Begin block out using reference footage I have taken from the last post. I may reshoot some of it as well. 
Sept. 21 - Blocking
Sept 28 -  Blocking
Oct 5 - Splining
Oct 12 - Splining
Oct 19 -  Final Animation

I do have a full schedule this semester and I'll be trying my best to do everything I want to do! c:

Update 9/7

I created reference for the dialogue I want to animate. I have a rig for this dialogue but I will still be looking for other ones I might possibly use.

Week 1

This semester I'll be working on some projects in order to spruce up my demo reel. Currently it has a lot of short game animations but I'd like more character animation with dialogue to replace some of the older parts of my reel. Ideally I'd like to do two pieces of dialogue by the end of the semester for this class.

The first dialogue piece I'd like to do would be from an interview with the actor Chris Evans. I would animate two rigs. One for the reporter and the second for the actor.
Their dialogue reads as follows:

Reporter: Elizabeth Olson has just revealed you are a tap dancer.
Chris Evans: Aw, she's out there sayin' that to everybody thats- listen, listen, alright. yes. yes.  I did grow up tap dancing, but I-----I can't say I'm a tap dancer.

I hope to have this done by the sixth week then get to the work on the next piece of audio.  I haven't picked out another piece yet but I plan to find one through
