Working in Passes

These videos show the animation passes I went through:

Staging

This is mostly about placing the characters and the camera and making sure the composition would work with the acting I’m planning.

Blocking

This is where I put in the acting ideas. First pass is very broad, then I used another pass to added some subtleties.

Fleshing it out

Here I started taking care of the actual movement. It’s still very preliminary in this pass – you can see a lot of smaller stuff is still missing (mouth sync for example).

Refining

This is the final work with everything done (took quite a few to get here from the last video, but I’m sure you get the idea):

Final Work

This is pretty much the same but with lighting, background etc:
