In this April event I will be taking one line of Dialogue and approaching it two completely different ways. When you are animating personal tests, showreel shots or even on feature productions, it's always a good to try different acting choices. Let the ideas evolve and trying not to fall in love with your first pass. I like experimenting with different character types to see how their personalities change the overall acting choices that I animate. I will roughly spend about 40 to 50 mins on each character, leaving plenty of time for Q&A. The initial brainstorming or concept stage is always an issue for students but it really helps when they see me struggle and change directions on the fly. It gives them a sense of relief to see that the concept stage is not all about sticking with your first initial thoughts. Even for professional animators, the concepts have to be kept fluid and should be able to evolve. For me, this is the most enjoyable part of the process because you're taking a thought, an idea or a concept and shaping it into a piece of original animation that nobody has ever seen before. After I solve the two performances, I will then choose one of these passes and convert it into Maya for the May webinar and animate the other pass for the June webinar.
